Coverage For Your Prized Collections!

Millions of Americans choose to collect some sort of artifact. It is nice to spend years collecting an item, and look back on all of the memories associated with what it took to find them! If you are a collector of coins, baseball cards, stamps, or anything else, have you taken the time to think about getting the proper insurance? Some collections can total thousands of dollars, or more! You should do all you can to make sure your hard work, and money is protected. Here are the steps you should follow to make sure your collector’s item is appropriately covered:

  • Get in touch with a trusted insurance representative. If you are not sure where to find one, speak with your friends and family about their pleasant insurance experiences, or contact the All Nevada Insurance website.
  • Next, you will want to take your items to get appraised! If you collect baseball cards, you should find a sports memorabilia specialist. If you collect coins, you should take them to a coin expert! It all depends on the type of item you collect. The goal is to determine how much your collection is worth.
  • Ask your agent what information they will need from your appraiser. They will need documentation of the collection’s value.
  • Consider adding a collectibles policy to your homeowner’s insurance policy. This way, you do not need to purchase an entirely new insurance policy.

If you have any further questions regarding how to insure your precious collectibles, please contact one of the skilled insurance professionals at All Nevada Insurance! We are located in Las Vegas, but continuously serve the needs of the policyholders in California, Arizona, Utah, and New York! We are excited to assist you with your insurance goals, today!

Fool-Proof Fire Prevention Tips!

When you buy a home, you are making one of the biggest investments of your life. There are many threats to your home that can never really be controlled. A few examples are natural disasters like floods, mudslides, and forest fires. However, you can control the way you prepare for these occurrences! Better preparation means less panic, and stress. Here are a few recommendations to ensure you and your family would be ready to handle a fire in your home:

  • Have a discussion with your family to make sure that all members are aware of how to get out of the house. They should know how to open all the windows quickly, and be aware of your designated meeting spot. The meeting spot is a safe area where you and your family members would reconvene after escaping a fire.
  • Install smoke detectors in every room of your home, and make sure that the batteries are working properly. You should also do monthly battery checks.
  • Place fire extinguishers throughout your home, and ensure that everyone knows where to find them. Teach your children how to remove the pin, and expel the fire retardant.
  • Consider installing a central alarm system that will alert you of fires, break-ins, and more.
  • Make sure that you have the right form of insurance, and that you are covered for an amount that is appropriate for the home you are living in. If you have too much coverage, you are wasting money on your insurance expenses each month. If you have too little of coverage, you are exposing yourself to dangerous financial risks that you should do your best to steer clear of.

Homeowners Insurance and HOAs

Homeowners associations, or HOAs, are not only for condos and apartments. Many single-family homes are also part of a HOA. Living in a house with an HOA comes with many perks, such as knowing that your yard and the community pool will always be well maintained. If you live in a home with an HOA, it’s important to know how to handle your homeowners insurance policy.

When you join an HOA, make sure that you know exactly what their Master policy covers. If you live in a detached home that is part of an HOA, their insurance policy will most likely cover all of the community amenities, such as gates and any recreational facilities. It’s also important to make sure that you know how much coverage the Master policy provides.

Even though you’re part of an HOA it doesn’t mean that you don’t have to purchase your own homeowners insurance policy. Just as if you weren’t part of an HOA, you would still need to invest in a policy that would provide enough coverage for all of your assets if they were destroyed or damaged. It’s important to make sure that your individual policy provides enough coverage so that there’s no gap between the HOA policy and your policy.

It’s even more important to make sure that your individual homeowners insurance policy has enough liability coverage when you’re part of an HOA. Since homes in an HOA are typically closer together, a fire or water leak that starts at your home can easily spread and cause serious damage to other homes.

Contact the insurance professionals at All Nevada Insurance in Las Vegas for all of your homeowners insurance needs. We will work with you and your HOA to ensure you have the right amount of coverage for your specific situation.

Not Investing in Insurance Could End up Costing You

Investing in the right insurance policies is the only way to ensure that you and your assets are protected incase of any disaster, even though it may be pricey. Many people wrongly believe that they can save money by skipping out on insurance coverage in their life. However, not investing in the right insurance policies can actually end up being much more expensive in the long run. Here are some of the reasons not investing in insurance can be devastating:

  • In case of a catastrophic loss. While experiencing a catastrophic loss is uncommon, it doesn’t mean that it’ll never happen. Even if you’re independently wealthy, you can be financially devastated in the case of a catastrophic loss. Instead of opting out of insurance policies, raise the deductibles if you’re looking for ways to save money.
  • For future insurability. When you’re looking for a new insurance policy, no matter what the policy is, most insurance companies will ask how long you’ve been continuously insured. If you can’t prove that you’ve been continuously insured for a number of years, you may be considered a risk, and some insurance companies may not want to insure you.
  • Potential for liability claims. Even if you choose not to invest in an insurance policy because you don’t think that you’re at risk for an accident, you should always consider the possibility of a liability claim. If someone is injured at your home and sues you, the liability portion of the policy would provide protection. Without liability insurance, you and your assets would be left vulnerable in the lawsuit.

We Loved Volunteering at the 5K & 1 Mile Race for a Superhero!

We just got done sponsoring the 24th Annual 5K & 1 Mile Race for a Superhero, and loved every minute of it! The event took place on September 13th and helped to raise funds for Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. We have enjoyed sponsoring the event for the past few years, and love being able to watch the event grow each year!

The race was hosted by Chet Bucanan, and was tons of fun! Almost everyone came out and dressed up as their favorite superhero to help support the Candlelighters Kids and families. We cannot wait for next year’s event to help this great cause even more!

The Candlelighters foundation was started to help support children who’ve been diagnosed with cancer. They focus on helping children from birth to 21 years of age who are living or being treated in Nevada. The Foundation was founded by two families who had children that were being treated for cancer. The hope of the foundation is to help families in these situations find strength, comfort, and knowledge by coming together in a time of need.

What started with a dedicated group of volunteers has grown into a strong force of full-time employees who help 100 families each month, and as much as 600 families throughout the year. There is no fee or membership that is required to receive comfort and help from the Candlelighters. All families in the area who are dealing with childhood cancer are eligible for the services that they offer.

For more information about the race, or to learn about how you can donate to this great cause, contact All Nevada Insurance.

Round 5: Knockout Cancer for Candlelighters Kids

On Friday, October 3, 2014, we once again sponsored and coordinated our annual unarmed combat charity event that raises money and awareness for local kids battling cancer through Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. We had another successful event thanks to all involved in putting it on. This year, the event included not only MMA and Boxing, but Kickboxing and Grappling. To date, the event has generated more than $133,000. We are already excited to start planning next year’s Round 6: Knockout Cancer for Candlelighters Kids!

Tips To Keep Your Kids As Safe As Possible This Halloween

Halloween is a great holiday for all ages but some parents tend to get nervous around Halloween time because of the many dangers it can pose to younger children. There’s no need to fear, your kids can still get their Halloween thrills and you can make sure they’re safe in the process with these Halloween safety tips!

  • Make trick or treating at night safer by using reflective tape on your kid’s costumes. Make sure to supply your kids with a flashlight and have them walk instead of run from house to house. Instruct your kids and their friends to stay on the sidewalk facing traffic while trick or treating.
  • Avoid trick or treating accidents by checking to make sure that every part of the costume fits well and isn’t blocking your child’s vision. Make sure nothing is dangling that could result in your child tripping or falling. All costume accessories should be flexible, short, and soft to avoid any accidents.
  • Your kid may want their costume to look as real as possible, but as a parent their safety should be your priority. Check the makeup your child is using to avoid any rashes or skin irritations and avoid any possible eye irritation that could result from decorative contacts.
  • Keep your kids safe while trick or treating by only allowing them to enter homes that are well lit and owned by adults that you trust. Instruct your kids to stay away from dark houses and to never accept rides home from strangers.
  • Check the treats your kids get to make sure there are no choking hazards and that nothing has been tampered with. Steer clear of any homemade looking treats and make sure all candies are unopened.
