Get Austin Auto, Renters, or Homeowners Insurance Before You Move

It’s not a surprise that Austin sees an influx of new residents every day. There’s a ton of things to see and do here, especially if you’re new to the city.

Before you get settled in Austin, it’s always a good idea to set up your insurance. Texas has very specific laws about auto insurance that you’ll want to be sure you prepare for. In addition, it’s important to protect your investment in a living space, whether you’re renting, leasing, or buying.

What to Insure

Your Home

When you purchase a home, homeowners insurance is critical to helping protect your investment. Mortgage companies require you have insurance protection on your home, or that new downtown condo, for the duration of your loan.
We work with many lenders and can help you navigate the insurance requirements for your new residence. Make sure you’ve got a plan for getting your new Austin home insured!

Damage from Floods or Earthquakes

If you’re planning on purchasing a home, you might be interested in a supplemental insurance policy to cover unexpected weather in Austin.

Recently, Austin and the surrounding area have been inundated with rain and isolated flooding. Flood insurance can help keep your property protected, even from Austin’s fiercest rainstorms.

A recent U.S. Geological Survey shows that Texas is among several states facing significant hazards from human-induced earthquakes. A policy against earthquake damage might serve you as well.

Rental or Leased Properties

In Austin, the condo and apartment business is booming. According to the Department of Numbers, “In 2014 42.90% of households were renters according to Census ACS data.”

That means that renters insurance is a requirement in Austin. With it, you can protect yourself and your property against potential damages.

In fact, most landlords will insist you have a policy when you move in. Make sure you plan on an insurance policy to make moving into an Austin apartment easy on yourself.

Boats, Jetskis, & Watercrafts

Austin has a great deal of natural opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Lady Bird Lake (or Town Lake) and Lake Travis offer the chance to paddleboard, boat, or ride jetskis. All of these awesome recreational vehicles can have their own insurance policies so that you can play hard without worrying too much.

Yourself and Your Health

While you’re boating, hiking, swimming, or biking, you might end up injured. Get off on the right foot by insuring yourself, and covering any potential health hazards you could encounter. That way, you’ll be prepared to paddleboard and hike to your heart’s content.

Plan Ahead

Insurance on all of your belongings, activities, health, and living space can seem like a giant headache. That’s why we recommend you look into insurance as soon as you know where you’ll be situated.

We’ve worked hard to simplify the process and get you the policy you feel is best for your lifestyle with the least hassle involved. Call Britton and Britton Insurance before you land in Austin and we’ll get you started.
