Auto Insurance in Maine

Automobile Insurance
No matter where you live, if you drive an automobile, you need auto insurance coverage. Your auto insurance rate is adjustable through your coverage limits and your deductible amounts. There are a number of other factors that affect the price of insurance, including your driving history, your age, and the type of automobile you drive.
Auto insurance discounts are available depending on what kind of vehicle you drive, where you live, or the safety features your vehicle has. We provide discounts to students, seniors, and retirees. If you drive a new automobile, economy automobile or utility vehicle, you may be eligible for further discounts. Even the type of safety system your vehicle has can make you eligible for auto insurance discounts. For example, discounts may be applicable if your vehicle has passive restraint systems, anti-lock brakes, or anti-theft devices.
We also offer auto insurance discounts to those who have been accident-free with no moving violations in the last three years. Our best auto insurance discount is for drivers who have been accident-free for five years and who have no moving violations. We'll take the time to discuss the many options available and find a program that meets your individual needs.

Flood Insurance
Flood insurance provides protection for destruction and financial devastation caused by floods. Although it may not seem like much even a few inches of water can cause serious damage; resulting in thousands of dollars in repair and restoration costs. Homeowners insurance does not cover floods.
Although it may not seem as necessary as homeowners insurance, flood insurance is important if you want to keep your home safe and your possessions secure. Flood coverage offers protection against losses that result from heavy and lengthy rain falls, storm surges, blocked storm drainage systems, snow melts, etc.
Different types of policies are available based on your property's location and flood history:

Standard Flood Insurance Policies
If you live in a community that participates in the NFIP, your building and its contents can be covered by a standard flood insurance policy. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was established by the Federal Government to help communities who "voluntarily participate in the NIFP by adopting and enforcing floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage." To be considered a flood, the waters must cover at least two acres or affect at least two properties. You must apply for building coverage and contents coverage separately if you choose to invest in a standard flood insurance policy.

Preferred Risk Flood Insurance Policies
If your home or business is in a low or moderate risk zone, your building may qualify for a low-cost preferred risk policy. While you aren't required to purchase flood insurance in low-to-moderate risk areas, a preferred risk policy will protect your home and its contents if you are affected by a small flood or a larger flood that has extended into your low-risk area. In truth, many flood insurance claims occur in low-to-moderate risk areas.

Don't wait until it's too late as most policies have a 30 day waiting period before coverage begins, unless it is required due to a loan closing.

Valuable Article Insurance
Typical homeowner's policies are designed primarily to protect your home, personal liability and general contents of your house. But if your property includes high value contents like heirlooms, jewelry, an art collection, your silver or china collection, or even the wine collection you've been maintaining for years, you can't depend on the typical homeowner's policy to keep your property protected.
Many people think that their valuables will be covered for their entire value under the contents limit on their homeowner's policy. Don't get caught off-guard: in a usual home owners policy there are many sub limits on valuable items, making it unlikely that all your belongings will be replaced for their full value. In order to better protect your exceptional items, it's important to have them covered under a valuable articles policy.
This policy is designed to schedule your valuable items at an appraised value that is agreed upon by the insurance company. The advantage here is that you can determine what you would be paid in the case of a claim. At the time of a covered loss, you would get 100% of the itemized value in a loss settlement-all with no deductible or depreciation.

Here are a few examples (not all inclusive and varies by company) of items that should be covered by valuable articles insurance:

  • Jewelry and engagement rings
  • Silverware, china and crystal
  • Antiques
  • Fine Art
  • Stamp and coin collections
  • Bicycles
  • Sound equipment (recorders)
  • Sports equipment (archery, camping, fishing, skiing)
  • Cameras
  • Computers
  • Musical instruments
  • Golf Equipment
  • Furs
  • Guns
  • Wine collections

Rental Property Insurance
Rental Property Insurance, (AKA Dwelling Fire Insurance) can protect your rental property from similar causes of loss as a homeowner's policy and yourself from legal and personal liability. With Dwelling Fire Insurance through Midcoast Insurance Agency, you can rent your property to others with confidence.
Dwelling Fire policies cover houses and structures that are NOT occupied by the owner. A homeowner's insurance policy may NOT cover damages to a home that the policy holder is not living in. Dwelling Fire insurance covers all fixed structures such as the home itself, the foundation, cabinets, walls, countertops, etc. Most dwelling fire policies DO NOT cover personal property because the policy holder is not an occupant of the home. Dwelling fire policies can be written for other structures on the property also such as sheds, unattached garages, barns, pagodas, and greenhouses. If a covered cause of loss leaves your rental home inhabitable, a dwelling fire policy will cover up to a year's rent for the vacancy We even have programs for weekly or monthly rentals, not just those rented annually.
