When it is time to update your insurance policy, preparing for the updating process can make it go much more smoothly. Use these checklists to help prepare for updating your insurance.
For auto insurance, you will just need some basic information to update it. First, you will need your policy number as well as the vehicle’s VIN number. You will also need the plate number and any other requested information. This is a great start for you, however, and you should be able to get any other information needed pretty quickly.
Most of the time, you will not need to update homeowners insurance information unless you are getting new insurance or changing to a new company, you will need the home address, when it was built, the square footage, and the roof type. In addition to this, you will need to be able to tell them if you have any safety features in the home such as smoke detectors. If you have a mortgage on the home, you will need the mortgage company information as well as the mortgage information for your loan. Some other information you will need includes the amount of coverage you want and any valuable property that you will keep in the home.
If you are a business owner, then you may need to update your business insurance from time to time. You will need your current policy information, the changes you want to make, and the name on the policy. If you have company vehicles for the business, you will need to have all of the VIN numbers for those vehicles for the policy. You will also want to know how long you want the new policy to last.
