Flood Damage – Are your home and car insured?

Posted on: September 13th, 2017 by Agent Mark No Comments

Flood DamageThe devastating natural disasters in Texas and Florida have got a lot of people talking about their insurance coverage.

We wanted to take a moment to go over a few flood insurance basics for car and property owners.

Your car insurance and flood damage:

If you have selected comprehensive coverage on your Massachusetts car insurance policy, your car will be covered for any damage caused by a flood event.

Your home, apartment or condo insurance and flood damage:

You will need a separate FLOOD INSURANCE policy to be covered for flood damage. The standard policy for your home, apartment or condo insurance will not provide any coverage for flood damage.

Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States, but only fourteen percent of Americans elect to purchase this insurance.

If you are interested in learning more about Flood Insurance, FEMA has a very informative website on Flood and Flood Insurance.

We at Herlihy Insurance have LOTS of clients that decline to review the flood insurance option. For many of our clients this is a valid choice. If you do not need it, do not buy it! We just want all of our clients to take a second look at where they live and what a flood event might mean to them.

We can help you with your flood insurance questions. Just give us a call or send us an email!

Hurricane Harvey – Contact your Insurance Agent and ask them to take the Hurricane Challenge!

28xp-harveyroundup1-master768We at Herlihy Insurance Group are asking all Insurance Agencies and Insurance Companies to take the Hurricane Challenge!

It is a very simple challenge. Just donate to the Hurricane Harvey Relief effort.

The devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey is too big to ignore. Although we live and work hundreds of miles from the storm ravaged areas, we empathize with this community and want to help.

We know that not everyone impacted by the storm will have the necessary flood insurance to recoup their losses. The statistics being shared at this time indicate that only about twenty percent of property owners in this area actually carried flood insurance.

In the cleanup and rebuild process we know these communities will need donations.

Today Team Herlihy will be making its donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief effort.

And to all our insurance agency owners and insurance companies, we challenge you to take the Hurricane Challenge!

Just Do It!
