I must have missed something in the movie world because I just realized that a new Star Wars movie is being released December 2016, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Needless to say, I am ecstatic to see the film when it comes out. However, I must practice Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi patience until then.
I saw the very first Star Wars film on opening day May 25, 1977. It was my sister’s birthday but I skipped out to stand in line for two hours with my best friend in order to get tickets and the best seats in the house. The marketing lead up to the film captivated anyone who loved sci-fi movies. We couldn’t wait! The film did not disappoint. Then in the summer of 2015 that same friend and I purchased online tickets (no waiting in line) to see the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens and again it didn’t disappoint. I will purchase my online tickets for Rogue One as soon as I am able and I’ll be patient until that time.
So you ask, what does this have to do with Service Line Coverage? Or as Yoda would say, “Service Line Coverage, hmmm, what is?” Well, honestly, I’m ecstatic and have been patient for this coverage to be available on my home.
My homeowner policy renewal came out this week and I am thrilled because I’ve been waiting for this coverage for a long time! I have been a homeowner for 32 years and this year is the best renewal by far. I witnessed my neighbor who had their water line burst on their side of the street. The city/county didn’t cover the damage, their homeowner insurance didn’t cover the damage, my neighbors covered the damage by way of a second mortgage on their home to pay for the over $6000 cost to dig up the public street, install new pipes and repave the street. YUP! It was crazy expensive and I suspect they are still paying on that second mortgage.
Service Line Coverage provides protection from an unexpected loss caused by a service line failure which is not a covered loss under most insurance policies. This added coverage extends to damage of underground piping, wiring, valves or attached devices that connect a home to a public utility service provider or to a private system.
Star Wars and Service Line Coverage are both worth the wait. Being a sci-fi fan and an insurance agent can be fun at the same time as well as being a homeowner especially when your company offers new coverages. If your homeowner policy doesn’t have Service Line Coverage on it, contact us and we can give you a quote!!
