Your home is likely the most valued asset you own, and because of that, we believe that every policyholder should insist that their insurance company inspect what they insure. It has taken some insurers and homeowners years to realize the value of home insurance inspections.
Every insurance company has been witness to the loss of a family home, it is an absolutely horrific ordeal of devastation and emotion that the family is forced to endure. Although your first instinct may be to extinguish the fire, it is important that everyone knows what do when a fire becomes uncontrollable. Your family members have only a matter of minutes to safely escape the fire and smoke before it consumes the house. You must have a plan in place!
Ask anyone that works in insurance, the story has been the same for years. They never really planned to work in insurance, it somehow just happened. That may be changing. Our younger generations, yes that includes millennials, are selecting insurance as a career choice and choosing a post-secondary school and program that makes the best sense to achieve this goal.
Everyone should set aside time to review their insurance policy, regardless of your policy type. Most people have a personal insurance policy that covers their contents, home or automobile. These are likely to be the most valued assets you own, taking time to review that they are insured properly and that you are fully protected should be a priority at the very minimal once per year on renewal.
We encourage our members to ask questions. Mostly because your insurance policy is not always easy to understand, and asking questions is the simplest way to learn more about your coverage and limits.

Did you know that approximately 3.4 million children experience an unintentional household injury every year and that 2,300 children under the age of 15 die from these unintentional injuries? The leading cause all injuries in the home are falls, toxins, and suffocation by an ingested object or smoke inhalation.
