Earthquake

Earthquake insurance is NOT included with your homeowners insurance. Earthquake insurance is a form of property insurance that pays the policyholder in the event of an earthquake that causes damage to the property. Most ordinary homeowners insurance policies do not cover earthquake loss.
 
Most earthquake insurance policies feature a high deductible, which makes this type of insurance useful if the entire home is destroyed, but not useful if the home is merely damaged. Rates depend on location and the probability of an earthquake. Rates may be cheaper for homes made of wood, which withstand earthquakes better than homes made of brick.
 
In the past, earthquake loss was assessed using a collection of mass inventory data and was based mostly on experts' opinions. Today it is estimated using a Damage Ratio (DR), a ratio of the earthquake damage dollar amount to the total value of a building.[1] Another method is the use of HAZUS, a computerized procedure for loss estimation.

Don't be caught off-guard by an earthquake and find out TOO LATE that you do not have coverage! Contact us today to learn about earthquake insurance for your home and belongings.

What Our Customers Are Saying... 

Todd M. Cary, NC

Just completed a 6 figure complex commercial renewal with Carter Glass. I've shopped other agencies, but didn't do so this year. Carter has a high level of knowledge about Commercial Insurance policies and spent many hours effectively laying out my options, costs and strategies. What I've found is a comfort level knowing I am properly insured at a fair cost. This can get so complicated that I need someone I can trust to handle it. I also moved our BCBS plan as Carter is an agent for them.

We have many certificates of insurance and items to handle on a monthly basis and the staff has handled them quickly and professionally. Same goes for Personal Insurance, but it's not quite as big a concern to me as my commercial accounts.
