Mobile home insurance is a type of insurance policy designed to protect the owners of mobile homes from financial losses resulting from damage, theft, or other insurance-related incidents. If you own a mobile home, you know how important it is to keep it protected.
Mobile homes are often more vulnerable than traditional homes because they can be moved and because they typically don’t have a permanent foundation. With mobile home insurance, you can protect yourself and your home against a wide range of potential hazards.
What is covered by mobile home insurance?
🛡️There are many benefits to having mobile home insurance. For example, it can help cover the cost of repairing or replacing your home if it is damaged or destroyed by an accident or natural disaster. This includes events such as fire, lightning, wind, hail, and more. It can also help cover the cost of replacing your personal property if it is lost or damaged in the same incidents.
🛡️In addition to providing coverage for your home and property, mobile home insurance also offers liability coverage. This coverage helps protect you in case someone is injured on your property and decides to sue you for damages. With mobile home insurance, you can be confident that you will be able to defend yourself in court and that your financial interests will be protected.
🛡️Similar to homeowner's insurance, mobile home policies can be just as comprehensive in terms of endorsements. Most mobile home policies include Other Structures (for sheds, detached garages, etc.), Medical Payments to Guests, Loss of Use / Loss of Rents and many more optional coverages.
How much does mobile home insurance cost?
Mobile homes, like a homeowner's policy, vary in price depending on the extent of the coverage. Typical mobile home Cash Value policies range between $40,000 to $90,000 currently and policies are usually around $500 or less per year.
Some mobile homes however are incredibly customized. If you have an elaborate mobile home that has a lot of custom options, upgrades and extensions, you are going to want to insure to full replacement cost. This will guarantee that your property is rebuilt the way you had it, fully indemnifying you for your loss. Typical policies over $125K in coverage are trending around $1,000 per year.
