Your home insurance must be just right. Not too much. Not too little.
Your house is perhaps the largest financial investment you’ll ever make. You know you need to protect that investment. Yet your house is more than dollars and cents. It’s your home! It’s where you raise your children. It’s where you celebrate the victories in life. It’s where you share your sorrows with those you love. Along the way, you collect items that are valuable both for their memories and for their monetary worth. So here are a few things you must know.
Under-Insured: Too Little
If your homeowners insurance doesn’t take all of the contents of your home into consideration and your personal liability as a property owner, you could be under-insured. Should an incident occur, you could have a significant financial loss.
Over-Insured: Too Much
On the other hand, if you don’t understand what is in your homeowners insurance policy, you could be over-insured.
Homeowners Insurance: Just Right
Your licensed insurance specialist will use our thorough Homeowners Insurance Checklist to ensure that everything you have of monetary value as well as your personal liability is included in your new home insurance policy. Yes, another insurer may quote you a little lower price, but when you have a claim, you may find out that you are not covered for the loss! Remember, unlike online providers, we live in your neighborhood. We’ll take better care of you and make sure we get it right. After all, we want you to be glad to see us when you meet us in the grocery store.
We Do the Shopping for You
We have more flexibility than traditional insurance companies, like Allstate, Farmers, AAA, or State Farm. They sell just one brand. As a local insurance agency, Carl Nelson Insurance works with numerous underwriting insurance companies, all with A ratings with A.M. Best Rating Service. You don’t have to shop around—we do that for you.
High-Value Coverage. Save up to 15%.
While shopping for your quotes, our aim is to match your unique home insurance needs with first-rate coverage at a low price. With our state-of-the-art technology, we can compare your coverage options for homeowners insurance in just a few minutes over the phone or by email or by using our Get Quotes form. Often we can save you up to 15% on what you are currently paying for home insurance, while improving your coverage!
If Your Home is Difficult to Insure
Sometimes getting home insurance can be difficult, like if your house has a shingle roof or is an older home. Or maybe you made a claim and then your insurer dropped you. When another insurance company can’t or won’t cover you, don’t panic. We help those who are difficult-to-insure get insurance coverage at an affordable cost.
Inevitably, life will throw bad stuff your way, and you will need to make a claim. To make it as easy as possible for you, Carl Nelson Insurance provides 24/7 claims service directly with the insurance company we’ve placed you with. We also have a dedicated in-house claims department to answer your questions and to help you resolve any issues with the least amount of worry. It also saves you precious time!
Personal Assistance When You Need It
One of our new clients told us of his frustrations with his prior online insurance company. He had one simple problem to resolve, but every time he called the online company, he spoke with someone new. He couldn’t remember how many people he had talked to. Your home insurance specialist will know you and be responsive to you personally. The rest of the CNI staff will back up your specialist, always ready to serve you when you need it.
