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.
