Ask Me About:

Over this past year many of my clients have undertaken remodeling or upgrades to their homes. Some are do it yourselfers and others have hired contractors to do the work. Either way, there may be some changes you will want to look at making on your homeowner’s policy.

If you were freshening up your place with paint, perhaps new carpeting or other flooring, roof, etc, unless your policy pays for any damages on an Actual Cash Value (ACV) basis, you are ok with your current coverage. If you do have an ACV policy, you should notify your carrier that you have replaced these items and of course keep the receipts. If your policy has Replacement Cost coverage you are fine, although I would still save copies of the receipts.

If you did upgrades to your home such as a new kitchen or bath with upgraded cabinets and counters, you should talk with your agent to make certain you have your home’s Replacement Cost estimated correctly to cover the value of rebuilding in the event of a catastrophic loss.

Spring is here so it is time to get the RV ready for Summer. This means not just making certain the batteries are good so the engine and generator will start, but also reviewing your insurance to make certain you have the coverage you want. This should take but a few minutes, so pull out that policy and look it over.
For those of you who are like me where your RV consists of a tent and an awning, you are all set unless you intend to camp along the California coast. In that case, you had better work on reserving a camp site.

And remember that RVs also include off road motorcycles, quads, and boats. If you need more information, give me a call at (805) 985-5488.

This blog is about something that we don’t want to think about even though it is important to think about when planning for your family’s financial future. It is about Life Insurance.

I lost my kid brother a few months ago. He was 57 years old. His life was running along great; perfect family; been a Ventura County Fireman for 20+ years; looking forward to retirement. A few years back during a routine physical he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Last month it got the best of him and it has been tough for his wife, kids, grandkids, and his extended family as we have all been close.

It is difficult to see any bright spots in these circumstances but something I am thankful for is that my brother bought life insurance 20+ years ago. He thought ahead and made sure that in the event the unthinkable happened, those he loved and cared for did not have to scramble around to figure out what to do. The family home is still in the family. The bills still get paid.

So please take some time to look at how you have prepared for your family in the event of your death. If you think you may have some holes in your plan or you have no plan at all, please give me a call, 805-985-5488 and we can help you figure out what works best for you and your circumstances. Of all the claims I get involved in, none give me greater satisfaction than giving the family who has lost someone they love, the life insurance proceeds to help them financially carry on with their lives.

My oldest son had his Yamaha motorcycle stolen from his house a few weeks back, and as it was an older bike, he did not carry any physical damage coverage on it. In a separate incident, there was a house fire that did major damage to the garage and the 2 cars parked in it. My son thought he might have some theft coverage on his homeowner’s policy for the bike. Neither of these losses had coverage under the homeowner’s policy. For vehicles, whether it is a car or motorcycle, each needs to be insured for theft, vandalism, or collision on its own policy.

Thirty years ago you could buy a new car and sign two documents; a Sales Agreement and DMV Registration. If you have purchased a new car recently, you know there is a stack of documents you are required you to read and sign. Purchasing a home is the same; what was simple has now become complex to the point few people read what they are signing. With a new car or new home, you at least have a good idea of what you just purchased.

With an insurance policy, it is not so easy. Insuring your car or home is much more complex as you can experience many different types of problems. Everyone assumes a homeowner’s policy insures your home if it is damaged by a fire, but what about mold or termite damage, or theft of cash? What about hiring an acquaintance to clean your house and they injure themselves somehow? Do you have coverage for this?

If your car is broken into and personal items are taken. Do you have coverage for this?

Many different things can happen in our lives and while we know accidents happen and we assume some risks every day, having knowledge of what risks we are accepting ourselves is important. Whether you think your situation is complex or simple, if you have a question about what is covered, you should give me a call at (805)985-5488.
Starting and running a small business is an exciting adventure. After getting everything set up, you then have to work on getting the phone to ring or people to come in the door so you can make a sale. Cash flow is your business’ lifeblood and to help protect it, you need to be certain you have the proper insurance coverage. Most Landlords will require you to have General Liability per your lease agreement. But what about the loss of inventory due to a fire or water pipe burst that starts in another part of the building? Or what about being out of business while repairs are made to the building? Coverage for inventory, business equipment or tools, and business interruption are only a few of the things to consider when insuring your business.

If uncertain about what exact coverage you have, get your policy out and have a look. If you have any questions with the “insurance speak”, feel free to give me a call. (805)985-5488
