Yesterday’s question was whether you should buy homeowner’s insurance from the same carriers as your auto insurance. Here’s one person who says yes:
Just had Allstate drop my homeowners insurance due to the “potential” of the upcoming hurricane season. I live on the North Shore of Long Island. I was told if I had the auto policy under Allstate, they would have kept me on. I have spent hours on the phone trying to get a new policy which had unexpectedly become a huge burden due to the age of my home (built in 1925) & underground oil tank.
In the end, I just signed up for a nice policy, with increased coverages, & for less money but had to do a lot of digging. Ultimately, they are covering my oil tank for leaks which is another mess I will have to deal with in the near future. Oh, moving the auto policy over gave me a about a 5% discount on the homeowners.
