All You Ever Wanted to Know About Insurance

Unpack Your Moving Concerns

Here are some things to keep in mind before and after the big move.

First, you should be concerned about the things you are moving. You want to protect your stuff—whether you rent or own—so you should have an insurance policy in case of fire, flood or other disaster. We are here to ensure that your policy is up-to-date with your new address, and any belongings you acquire for your new home. Some policies even provide coverage during the move itself. You might need to get moving insurance, especially if you are using a moving company. Most homeowners policies will not cover your belongings for breakage while they are in transit.

You also may have concerns about your vehicle. Every state has different rules and regulations about how long you have after you move to change your address with the Department of Motor Vehicles, which must be done even when moving within a state. If you are moving to a different state, you need to make sure you buy car insurance that meets the minimum requirements of your new home state, and get your car registered and inspected within the designated time frame to avoid penalties.

We can help you navigate all of these options and considerations while you move. Give us a call and we can help you through the process to make sure you are covered from start to finish.
