We specialize in earthquake insurance needs for the Sacramento area to help protect you and your family.

 

Like flood insurance, standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover any damage caused by earth movement which can cause severe damage to your home. Earthquakes can damage housing foundations and collapse walls; even relatively mild tremors can destroy furnishings and belongings. The cost to purchase earthquake insurance can vary significantly, from fairly inexpensive in lower risk areas to a relatively high cost in places that are more prone to earthquakes. Deductibles for earthquake insurance plans are higher than homeowners insurance can be between 5% and 15% of the value of your home.

Please contact us so we can provide you a value focused proposal to protect you, your family and your possessions and provide you peace of mind that comes with an insurance agent you know and a policy you can count on.
