Three things you shouldn’t assume about your boat insurance policy

The more well-informed you are about boat insurance, the better protected you will financially be while boating. At Alpine Ridge Insurance, we can provide you with the information you need to make good decisions as a boat owner in Auburn, WA. 

Many boaters make bad choices because of inaccurate assumptions they make about insurance coverage.

The following are three things you shouldn’t assume about your boat insurance policy:

You enjoy coverage everywhere once you’ve purchased boat insurance

A boat insurance policy will only cover you when you are boating if you are located within certain geographical limits.

Unfortunately, you will not be covered by your policy if you go boating outside of the geographical limits that are specified in the details of your policy. 

It’s always best to buy boat insurance from the same company you buy a home and/or auto insurance from

While you can sometimes enjoy lower boat insurance rates from the same company that insured your car and boat, this is not always the case.

It’s always best to shop around and get quotes from other providers before buying a boat insurance policy from an insurance provider of which you are already a customer. 

It’s not really necessary to purchase boat insurance.

It’s never a good idea to forego boat insurance coverage. Although boat insurance is not required by law in the state of Washington, failing to carry coverage could lead to severe financial consequences if you end up in a boating accident.
