Spring is in the air

In case we are still under the snow from the late winter, I thought I would provide you a glimpse of the future (photo).

Snowmobile or Motorcycle Insurance

Water Claim Prevention

I recently received some information from Safeco Insurance on water claims. Did you know that home insurance water claims are the 2nd most frequently filed claims? In addition, 1 in 50 insured home owners will file a water damage claim each year. Wow, that is a lot of claims for water damage. So below are a few tips for preventing or reducing claims.

Know where the main water valve is located so it can be shut it off quickly in case of an emergency.

Monitor the water bill. A bigger water bill may indicate a water leak exists. 

Replace the rubber hoses on washing machines, dishwashers and other water-related appliances periodically. Steel-braided hoses increase durability and longevity. 

Test sump pumps at least once per year. If the pump doesn’t have an alternate power source, add a battery backup or upgrade to a
pump with a water-powered backup. 

Clean gutters and downspouts regularly to ensure water moves through them properly and drains away from the home’s foundation. 

Inspect the water heater annually for signs of corrosion or leaks. Aging water heaters can weaken over time, increasing their
likelihood of rupturing.

Umbrella Insurance

Everyone should have an Umbrella Policy. Umbrella Policies provide extra coverage in case of a loss. With Safeco insurance the Umbrella Policy is attached to the auto insurance policy and extends over the car insurance and home insurance as well. If you are interested in finding out more about adding on an Umbrella Policy give Alpine Ridge Insurance a call at 253-833-9501. We are a family owned agency located in Auburn Washington and we assist our clients with home insurance, auto insurance, RV Insurance, umbrella insurance as well as other needs. We look forward to talking with you.

On behalf of Team Alpine we would again like to thank all vets for your service. We had a great time at our  Veterans Day Parade photo booth (second annual)  that was sponsored by Alpine Ridge Insurance, Terry Aman, and Dan Peck from Caliber Home Loans.

We are located here in Auburn Washington and are looking forward to talking with you. Give us a call at 253-833-9501. Again, a big thanks to all our vets!

Auto and Home Insurance

I have talked home insurance, auto insurance, and umbrella insurance with a lot of individuals and the one thing I find consistent is that most people don’t understand their coverages. That is where an insurance advisor comes in. If you buy Auto or Home Insurance based only on price how do you know what you are buying? There are also a lot of other areas to consider such as antique autos, collector autos, motorcycle insurance or home insurance liability coverage levels. Give Alpine Ridge Insurance a call today at 253-833-9501 and lets talk insurance, we are here to help with those insurance questions. We are located in Auburn Washington and serve our clients all over the State.
