Working from home is becoming very popular. Why not? Who needs the commuting and parking hassles of traditional workplaces? But you may need special coverage on your Home Insurance or a stand-alone Small Business policy. Exclusions typically will not cover injuries to visiting vendors or customers. Limitations on your Business Personal Property (samples, inventory, business-dedicated computers, office furniture) could be very restrictive. But the solution may be quite inexpensive. Call us to discuss the details.

Old cars are sometimes kept in mint condition from the very beginning. Other times, they need total restoration, sometimes referred to as “frame off”. Be careful. When the car is apart, some policies say there is no car there, simply a room full of parts. In the event of a loss, there is no coverage. We have a specialty carrier who includes vehicles in restoration. Call us to discuss the details.

I would love to have an old car. One of my favorites is the 55 Chevy. But I am likely destined to simply admire, not own. If someone is fortunate enough to own one, they are truly fortunate. And they need the right insurance to cover the full value of that special vehicle. Special policies are available to cover Antiques and Classics on an Agreed Value basis. Spare Parts can be covered as well. Call us to discuss the details.

If you own a motorcycle, we probably don’t have to point out that accessories can really add up! Assuming you cover your bike for Collision and Comprehensive damage, you may only be covering the “base” cycle. Or your policy may include an automatic extension for accessories, typically in the $1,000 to $3,000 range. Is that enough? Call us to discuss the details.

Operators and passengers can be injured on a motorcycle. In Pennsylvania, we have First Party Medical Payments for typical vehicles – cars, SUVs, minivans, pick-ups and more. But that coverage does not apply to motorcycles. Some motorcycle policies have no injury protection for operators or passengers. Some offer Motorcycle Medical Payments coverage. Call us to discuss the details.

Why is this covered? What does it cover? Who does it cover?

This is sometimes called Guest Medical Payments. It is designed to respond to visitors who are injured while at your home. Envision a friend or neighbor who falls and suffers minor cuts and breaks their eyeglasses. Medical Payments might pay for those expenses, simply because it happened “on your watch”. It is not an admission of negligence – that the injury was caused by something you did or failed to do. That’s a topic for another blog or video. As always, call us to discuss the details.

Where do you get your car repaired after a covered loss? Most folks have very little experience with auto body repair shops. Erie Insurance policyholders can have their cars repaired at the shop of their choice. Erie also has a network of Direct Repair Shops. In most cases, there is no need to meet an Erie Claims Adjuster because these shops have the authority to order parts and begin repairs. In addition to any shop guarantee, Erie also guarantees the workmanship for as long as you own your car. Call us to discuss the details!

We envision flames when we think about Home Insurance. But your policy also provides Family Liability protection. A visitor could be injured; a fire you start races to your neighbor’s house; you accidentally shoot someone while hunting; your golf shot goes off target, striking a fellow golfer. Does your policy have sufficient coverage to protect your family and your assets? Call us to discuss the details!

All Home Insurance policies are not created equally. Although we worry about fires, we may never experience one personally. We are more likely to suffer water damage from a burst water supply pipe, back-up of a drain, or water from an ice dam. Every policy does not cover those incidents. Does yours? Call us to discuss the details!

So…you’re in the “landlord” business. Do you have sufficient Liability protection is case a tenant or visitor is injured? If you have a fire, you will have building damage to repair. You will also likely lose your tenant and that monthly income stream. Will your policy replace those lost rents? Call us to discuss the details!
