Lots of people travel over the holidays to visit friends and family, whether they’re driving, flying, or teleporting (just kidding – but we wish we weren’t.) Taking a few days to go out of town and see loved ones is great, but you don’t want to be worrying about your house while you’re away. Before you leave for holiday vacation, check out these tips for securing your home against burglary while you’re away.
It’s one of the worst feelings ever – that thunk that causes your heart to leap out of your chest as a rock jumps up off the road (seemingly with a mind of its own) and hits your windshield. And then, sure enough, there’s a good-sized crack in the formerly spotless glass. It’s frustrating and upsetting because there’s nothing you can do other than resign yourself to dealing with the cracked windshield.
This holiday season, our family here at InsuranceHub decided to do something to give back to the community. We wanted to share some holiday joy by supporting a cause dear to our hearts, the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter. The nonprofit is dedicated to helping homeless children and their mothers in the Gwinnett County area, and they also help young women who age out of the foster system at 18. The Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter doesn’t just provide a safe, nurturing home for the families – they help the mothers by creating customized life plans with them and giving them the tools they need to get on the path to independence.
If you have an auto repair shop or a garage, the days are always packed. With cars that need to be fixed or serviced and returned to their owners, paperwork to handle, and premises to maintain, it’s hectic. One aspect of having a shop that you might be scratching your head about is auto body shop insurance. What coverages do you need? Auto shops aren’t without their risks, after all, and when life throws a curveball you have to be ready to hit it back. We’re going to go over five auto body shop insurance coverages you can consider.
When it comes to home insurance, there are a lot of things that can get a little…confusing. It’s like it’s a different language – one that corresponds to a subject that they somehow don’t teach in schools. One aspect of insuring your home that might have raised a few questions is finding out how much home insurance you need. Do you need enough insurance to cover the market value of the house or the replacement cost of the house? And, well, what’s the difference? We’re going to explain why these two values are so different and explain why insuring your home for its replacement cost is essential.
The idea of self-driving or autonomous cars is an intriguing one. What if you didn’t have to be paying attention to the road? What if you could enjoy the privacy of being the sole passenger in a vehicle, but not actually have to drive it? There are plenty of reasons that self-driving cars are something that interests us and has us looking towards the future.
Here at InsuranceHub, we believe in treating people the way that we would want to be treated. It’s called the Golden Rule for a reason, after all. And being in the insurance industry is about more than just numbers, policies, and quotes – it’s about people. To us, that means both our customers and our fellow teammates! We want to look out for people, help people, and occasionally bring food for people. It’s all part of the InsuranceHub method.
It’s always good to stay up-to-date on the latest online scams and tricks. One that’s been going around lately is called the Fake President Fraud. It’s quite nefarious because it relies on something called social engineering to trick/con employees into sending money – your business’s money – to a scammer.
We’re going to give you the scoop on this treacherous plot by explaining what it is, why it works, how you can defend against it, and an insurance solution that can help you safeguard against it.
You’ve probably seen commercials from different insurance companies promising big-time savings if you bundle your home and auto insurance. But perhaps you’re skeptical. Bundling, which just means getting multiple lines of insurance from the same company (for example home and auto), can save you money on your insurance…but how does it work? And, well, why does it work? We’re going to illustrate how bundling can help you save money on your insurance by going through a case study.
Every year, InsuranceHub puts on a little friendly holiday cooking competition. What can we say? We love food, and we love a good competition. (But we’re not at all competitive. Not at all.) Anyways, this year we did a Bake-off with each of our contestants bringing in delectable baked goods. We had pies, we had cakes, we had cupcakes! It was a delicious day here at InsuranceHub.
