Does Home Insurance Cover Porch Theft?

Package theft is on the rise but there is good news! Your home insurance will cover the theft of personal property, which includes package theft from your porch. You’ll likely need to prove that your package was delivered and stolen. You can typically do this with tracking numbers and other forms of proof, such as Ring camera video.

Contact your insurance agent with questions or visit https://bit.ly/35zk7hc for more information about homeowners insurance.

When it comes to moving in with a significant other, insurance concerns might not be the first thing on your mind, but it is important to make sure your insurance needs are covered.

If a couple is living in a home owned by one partner, it may be less expensive to have the homeowners’ insurance policy endorse the other partner’s belongings rather than purchase a separate renters’ insurance policy.

There are insurance considerations around health insurance, life insurance, and even auto so reach out to your insurer or visit our coverages page https://bit.ly/2Th2gs4 for more information.

Make home maintenance part of your fall routine to be ready for winter, keep costs down and avoid home insurance claims.

Check key problem areas for heat loss such as windowpanes, door seals, and thresholds, examine exterior paint and interior insulation.

Not only can this help you keep heating costs down but if air can get it, it’s likely water can too which can cause serious damage if left unchecked. To learn more about homeowners insurance, visit us at https://bit.ly/35zk7hc.
