Homeowners insurance helps to provide financial coverage in the event of loss due to theft, disaster, or accident. There are four types of coverage provided under the standard policy, this includes; coverage for the structure of your home, coverage for additional living expenses, liability protection and, of course, coverage for personal belongings. Cross Creek Insurance which serves Hope Hills, NC provide for all four coverage.
Your personal belongings, including furniture and clothes, are covered if they are stolen or destroyed by a hurricane, fire or any other insured disasters. Coverage for your furniture or other personal belongings is generally 50-70 percent of the insurance that you have on the structure of your house.
Many people are often not too sure if their coverage is adequate. One of the best ways of determining the adequacy or otherwise of your home insurance, with regards to furniture and personal belonging, is to conduct a home inventory.
Personal belongings coverage will cover for furniture that are stored off-premises; this translate to mean that your furniture is covered anywhere in the world. In some cases, some insurance companies limit the amount to ten percent of the amount of insurance you have on your possession.
Although other items such as jewelry, art, silverware, and collectibles are equally covered, there is usually a limit on them in the event they get stolen. To insure this item to full value you must purchase a special personal property endorsement to insure the item for its officially appraised value.
Homeowners insurance, in some situation, may also cover for your furniture when you are moving from location to another. For example, if the moving vehicle is involved in an accident while moving your properties. Whether you are moving or not, it is pertinent to know that any furniture or property covered by homeowners insurance will enjoy protection to the limits on your policy.
