Generally, insurance policies could help us save any last minute surprises. Unfortunately, many consumers have misconceptions about general insurance and we may need to deal with various tailor-made policies that can take care of us and our belongings. The final policy document should comply with any term that the insurer and agent have agreed with us. There are many things that can cause mistakes, such as wrongly entered age or misspelled names. These technical mistakes can cause our policies to get rejected. Full description of our assets should be provided to the insurer and in the case of house and property insurance, we should make sure that the insurance policy includes the right address. This also applies to car insurance and insurers can be particularly stringent about details of the car. If we improperly enter the seating capacity and vehicle models, our claims will be rejected because the insurer could argue that the plan is associated with a different car model. It is also important for us to inform insurers if we plan to perform many alterations, such as adding LPG kits and seating configurations.
An overall address of the insured house will make sure that our property will be properly insured. There’s a practice among professional insurance agents to continuously inform their clients about latest changes in the insurance industry or the plans themselves. In this case, we should make sure that the communication is performed directly, instead of through various intermediaries. When there are more intermediaries in the system, it is possible for us to experience delay or failure in information transmission. Delay may happen during policy issuance and we should make sure that the policy is insured one day before the expiration date. It is even better if the renewal is completed about two weeks before the expiration date so we can be really sure that we will be protected against any unexpected things. We should make correct estimations about all assets we have, so we will face much lesser risks for over or under insurance. For commercial insurance policies, we should understand about the average value of our products, as well as the rate of depreciation that could happen over time.
