How are claims calculated?
Our homeowners’ policies offer a ‘replacement cost’ for any destroyed, damaged, or stolen items. This means we’ll calculate the value of your item based on like, kind, and quality. If the item is no longer being sold, we will look for a similar one, and use that price for reference.
Can a claim be filed at any time?
Yes they can, claims can be filed 24/7, 365.
How do I lower the cost of my policy?
Your policy price (the ‘premium’) is mostly affected by how much coverage your policy has. Coverage can be easily adjusted before payment with a higher deductible may lower your price. Your deductible is the amount that will be deducted from any claim payment you may receive. Think of it as your participation in the damage or loss. A good claim history can also help reduce costs.
How do I cancel my policy?
You can cancel your policy at any time through the website. If you change your mind and want to come back, we’d love to see you again! Be aware that insurance prices change from time to time, so your new policy may come at a different rate than what you held.
How does renewal work?
We’ll send you an email notification before your annual anniversary, in most cases, you won’t have to change a thing!
Can I switch to BlueCouch if I already have an active policy with someone else?
Yes, you can! In most cases, you’ll end up saving money.
