Be Sure to Insure and Winterize Your Boat Properly

Having a boat can be great fun in the summertime, but it’s not as fun in the winter. Before the weather gets too cold, make sure you winterize your boat. You’ll want to protect it from the elements with a good cover or place it in dry dock. Also, make sure you winterize the engine correctly so you don’t have to worry about damage while it sits through the cooler months.

You also need to have the right insurance on your boat. There’s no need to pay too much, especially when the boat isn’t getting used. Don’t just drop the insurance, though, because you still need to make sure your boat will be protected from damage even when it’s not out on the water. By talking to your agent, you can get great options for minimal expense and keep your boat protected all year long.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is breast cancer awareness month. For people who have had or are currently battling breast cancer, it’s a time to reach out to others and remind them about mammograms and other procedures which can save lives. Many people who have had friends or relatives with cancer also join in during this time, in an effort to spare another family the pain of losing a loved one to a terrible disease.

While it’s not always possible to cure breast cancer, early detection is the key to having the best chance of survival. It’s very important that women are aware of their breast health, and that they work toward educating other women who may not know the dangers or realize how important it is to have regular checkups for their breast health. Understanding the importance of finding problems early can help save a lot of lives.

Keep the Kids Safe When Buying an ATV

An ATV is fun for kids and adults, making it a great addition to the family toy list. While exciting and adventurous, an ATV is deadly and dangerous when handled incorrectly. Even when handled properly, a malfunctioning ATV can cause serious injury or fatalities so always exercise extreme care with this powerful toy. It is always better to exercise caution but the most important thing to do is review your insurance policies.

Homeowners’ insurance providers include different coverage with standard policies. Never assume that your current policy will cover everything that happens in the home. You can add the ATV as a scheduled item to your policy. This means that if your standard policy does not cover related expenses then the added coverage will.

An ATV is quite expensive so consider adding it to your current insurance policy. Although it is just a toy, damage and repairs are costly to fix. Before letting your kids ride the ATV, go through safety precautions like speed limits with them. To schedule an item to your policy, contact All Nevada Insurance for options in the Nevada area.

Halloween Tips for Homeowners

Every year homeowners put themselves at some degree of risk by hosting Halloween parties and by handing out Halloween treats to neighborhood kids. Here are some safety tips for homeowners who want to minimize those risks.

  • Keep the exterior of your home well lit.
  • Remove any decorations that may impair the path of guests or visitors.
  • Keep wet leaves from accumulating on walkways.
  • Only hand out factory packaged candies and treats.
  • Have a plan for Halloween party guests who may drink too much alcohol.
  • Keep your pets away from guests and trick-or-treaters.
  • Don’t use candles in jack-o-lanterns. Use glow sticks or a battery operated light  instead.

Of course if you have little trick or treaters yourself, you’ll want to make sure costumes fit well and they can see clearly through masks. Check their candy and provide glow sticks or flashlights when they go out. Also make sure they are accompanied by an adult.

Condo Owners Insurance: What’s not covered?

Condo owners insurance is a good idea for anyone who owns or rents a condo in Nevada. While it may be required by the homeowners association (HOA), condo owners need to be careful about the type of policy they choose. They should also look through their policy and understand what is not covered under their policy.

A number of losses are not covered under these policies. Damage caused by domestic animals, insects, or birds, for example, is not covered. Further, damage caused by nuclear hazard, contamination, deterioration, or settling is also not covered. Condo owners may be interested to know that an earthquake or mudslide, as well as water damage caused by underground water or flood are all not covered.

Personal liability coverage is part of many plans, but some loss is not covered under this provision. Loss resulting from providing or not providing professional services, business activities, or property damage or bodily injury that’s intended or expected by the policyholder is not covered. Additionally, loss that results from use, operation, ownership of maintenance of certain watercraft, motor vehicles, and aircraft is also not covered.

Back to School: Update Your Child’s Auto Insurance

It’s back to school time and for parents, that means more than ensuring their child has all of their supplies and books. Whether your child is in high school or in college, if they are driving it is definitely time to update their auto insurance policy.

For high school students who drive the family car, or even those who have their own car, they are likely on your insurance policy. To maintain the same monthly premium or possibly lower the premium, ask your agent about possible discounts. Many insurers offer good driver programs that lower monthly premiums and many also offer discounts for good grades or for being on the honor roll. If your child has not been involved in an accident or has not had any traffic violations, and they also have maintained good grades, it’s time to lower your bill.

The same can be done with college students. Some insurers allow students living on-campus to remain on their parent’s policy. If this is the case, check to see if the same discounts are available to them.

What do I need to know if I’m moving?

If you’re moving, you want to make sure your insurance moves with you. Don’t just assume it will, because that can get you into financial trouble. Whether it’s homeowners insurance or business insurance, it needs to be transferred to your new location. Working with your insurance agent is the best way to handle that. You can coordinate everything so you’re covered at your old location right up until you leave it, while you’re moving, and then at your new location when you arrive.

You really can’t be too careful, especially if your move is a long distance one or you have a lot of expensive or hard to replace items. While insurance can’t guarantee that you won’t have an accident or your items won’t be damaged, you can make sure that you’re protected financially from anything that might happen during your trip. Moving is stressful enough, but having the peace of mind that comes with proper insurance can make it easier.
