Because hurricanes, floods, fires, and burglaries are on the rise in Florida, mobile home insurance is no longer a luxury, it's a necessity. Here's how to get cheap mobile home insurance in Florida.

Mobile Home Insurance

Standard mobile home insurance includes the following coverages:

Structure coverage - This pays to replace or repair your mobile home, and other structures like a detached garage, when they've been damaged or destroyed by fire, plumbing leaks, vandalism, or storms. Standard policies do not cover damage caused by floods, so you'll need to purchase extra insurance if you want flood coverage.

Personal property coverage - This pays to replace your personal property - electronics, clothing, furniture, bicycles, sports equipment, tools, etc. - when they've been damaged or destroyed by fire, plumbing leaks, vandalism, or storms. Standard policies limit the amount of coverage for expensive items like jewelry, furs, collections, and antiques, so you'll need to get additional insurance for these.

Additional living expense coverage - This pays your additional living expenses when your mobile home is uninhabitable and is being repaired. This coverage pays your hotels bills, restaurant bills, and other additional expenses.

Libility coverage - This pays for medical claims, property damage expenses, and legal
fees if you or your family injure another person or damage their property.

Trip collision coverage - This pays to repair or replace your mobile home when it's been damaged when you move it to a new location.

Emergency removal coverage - This pays to move your mobile home when it's being threatened by an approaching fire, hurricane, or other perils.
