Fire insurance is a form of property insurance specifically designed to cover the costs associated with repair, reconstruction and replacement of personal property after a fire. In most instances, fire insurance is included as part of your insurance coverage for your home, business or vehicle.
It is important that you are aware of what your currently-held insurance policies do and do not cover. An agent in the Trusted Choice network can help you review your insurance policies to ensure that they meet your fire insurance coverage needs. These agents may even be able to find ways to save you money on this very important insurance coverage.
Whether you own or rent or your home, it is important that you protect your finances from losses you may sustain as a result of a fire. You can purchase coverage for fire losses through one of the following types of policies:
If you are one of the many Texans who own their own business, you will want to be sure that it is properly insured against fire damage. Many Texas business owners work out of their homes. If this is the case with your small company, your homeowners insurance is probably sufficient for coverage. If you write off your home office on your taxes, you may need to add a special endorsement to your home insurance policy to cover the costs of lost or damaged business materials and equipment.
If your business is located outside your home, you can count on your business insurance policy to protect you from the losses associated with fire damage. If you own the building in which your business is housed, you will need to purchase sufficient structural coverage. Whether or not you own the building, you want to be sure to purchase enough contents coverage to compensate you in the event that a fire leads to a total loss. If you own a business in which you face an increased risk of fire, you may want to consider purchasing extended fire insurance for extra coverage.
If you insure your car or truck only at the state minimum requirements, you will only be purchasing liability insurance. The only way to have coverage against damages caused by a non-collision-related fire is by supplementing your vehicular insurance with comprehensive coverage. Comprehensive insurance will provide you with compensation for any damages your vehicle may sustain while not being driven. This includes damages caused by fire, severe weather, falling objects, vandalism and theft.
If you own a boat, snowmobile or other recreational-type vehicle, your home insurance may provide compensation for fire damage that happens on your property. For coverage against fire damage that may occur off your property, you will need to purchase comprehensive insurance for these vehicles.
An insurance agent in the Trusted Choice network can help by ensuring that you are property covered against potential fire damage.
