What to Know Before Buying Insurance in Grande Prairie‎

As a policyholder, the variety of insurance options can be overwhelming, so it pays to shop around for different policies and competitive rates. Depending on the type of insurance you choose, you’ll want to pick out loss settlement, policy limits, and specific coverage details.

You can’t glaze over your policy details, but you can get help translating the insurance lingo when you need it. Our brokers take often complex insurance lingo and turn it into something easy for you to understand.

What is a Loss Settlement Option?‎

You have insurance for your hard earned belongings, but what happens if you have an insured loss? It’s hard to know how much money you’ll be reimbursed. A foolproof way to have an estimate of the amount you’ll get back is your loss settlement option.

A loss settlement option is the money your insurer pays you after your claim is settled. You can choose from the actual cash value, replacement cost, or agreed value options at the time you set up your policy. These 3 options apply to all types of insurance you buy – from your home to your car insurance and everything in between.

3 Loss Settlement Options:

Agreed Value

The agreed upon value of an item or property. This option is used for special items, such as jewelry, antiques, or a heritage home.

Cash Value, or Market Value

This option includes the purchase price of your home, minus the depreciation. This is not the price you bought your home at but rather the current value of your home.

Replacement Cost

The total cost of replacing your home after a loss, without considering the depreciation.

The right coverage in Grande Prairie is a mix of security and affordable rates.

What is a Policy Limit

When you set up your insurance policy, you can set your policy limits. A policy limit is the set amount of money that your insurance company will pay you or a third party after a loss. For example, if you rear-end someone and you’re at-fault and the other party is injured or their car needs repairs, your insurer will pay out an amount up to your policy limit.

If you’re not sure the exact policy limits to set, contact one of Sharp’s insurance brokers in Grande Prairie.
