Auto Insurance on Bainbridge Island- Enjoy the discounts at Eagle Harbor Insurance

Did you know your auto insurance rates are directly effected by what zip code you live in?

A 98101 -Seattle zip code can literally be 35% higher than a 98110- Bainbridge Island,  98370- Poulsbo, or  98392 – Suquamish zip code.

This is due to matrix driven demographic numbers for these areas. The rating basis takes into account:

population size

rural vs urban

commute lengths

crime rates

highway,  freeway , and congested area access

At Eagle Harbor Insurance , we use carriers who fully realize the difference in risk from area to area and price accordingly.

Currently our carriers such as  Hartford Insurance, Safeco Insurance, Kemper Insurance, Encompass Insurance, and Stillwater Insurance all have specific zip code ratings for our area, and the excellent premium prices reflect this.

Be sure your using a carrier that rates by zip code, and feel free to ask the rate difference between a Seattle zip code and your zip code. This will give you a nice comparison basis for your carrier and how competitive their rates really are.

If you would like, we can do this comparison for you, free of charge , with no hard sell!

We would love to help you.

Earthquake Insurance with Eagle Harbor Insurance…..am I covered?

Many people don’t know that most homeowners insurance policy do NOT include earthquake coverage. To protect yourself in earthquake-prone areas, you’ll need to purchase separate earthquake insurance. ( we can help of course!!)

Your options usually are as follows:

•Earthquake coverage can be added as an endorsement on your homeowner policy

• Or we can offer stand alone earthquake coverage with numerous carriers.

With all of ther small “shakes” we have felt lately, we strongly recommend this additional coverage.

If your home is older, the carrier may require a earthquake retrofit prior to placing coverage. We can help determine the need for this and proper actions to take.

House passes American Health Care Act – now what?

First off- DONT PANIC- currently your plan remains the same.

Here is a very brief synopsis of what is happening:
House Republicans on Thursday, May 4 fulfilled a longtime campaign promise by passing legislation – the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – that partially repeals the Affordable Care Act.
Now it’s the Senate’s turn. Click this great article for more details.
The AHCA as currently written is expected to face an uphill battle in the Senate and when all is said and done, is likely to look different than what the House passed because of policy and reconciliation considerations.
The Senate can’t begin moving forward until the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office releases an updated analysis (or “score”) of the bill’s potential budgetary and insurance coverage impacts.
Following the Senate’s modifications, the bill will go to the Senate floor for consideration, possibly in early June.

We will do our very best to stay up to date as this unravels and relay information accordingly. Please know, we are always here to help and answer any current questions you may have .

Earthquake Insurance in the Pacfic Northwest

Bainbridge Island and beyond!

Here in the Northwest Earthquake Insurance is one of the most important types of Insurance to add to your Homeowner’s Policy…and yet it is also the most forgotten about. Thinking about Earthquake Insurance requires preparing for the worst, and yet as humans we tend to hold the mind set, “Oh that would never happen to me!” However, looking at where we are located here in Washington state we have to be …aware that it very well could happen to us. The question we really need to ask ourselves is, “if it happened could I afford to replace my home?” Most of us would have to answer “No.” In light of this it is extremely important to have Earthquake Insurance.

Earthquake Insurance can be added as an endorsement to your existing policies, or it can be purchased as a stand-alone policy. There are certain underwriting guidelines when purchasing one of these policies. These guidelines are:
•What year was home built?
•Type of foundation?
•Type of construction; frame or masonry?
•Approximate distance to water?
•Is the home located on a steep bank?

Many insurance companies in the State of Washington no longer offer Earthquake Insurance. Consumers may not even be aware that their insurance company is no longer offering this coverage. It is important to call your current insurance company and specifically ask them if they carry Earthquake Insurance.

At Eagle Harbor Insurance we have numerous different markets that provide Earthquake Insurance, and we will work with you to find the type of coverage you need.

Feel free to call us anytime !
