Changes in MA Auto Rates

Personal Property & Casualty Questions

Q Is it true that if I have my automobile and homeowners insurance with the same company, I will get a better rate?

A All our companies are very competitive and offer a variety of discounts. Contact us to see which company and discount program is best suited for you.

Q What is a personal umbrella policy, and do I really need one?

A A personal umbrella policy increases your liability coverage over and above your auto and home liability limits. For example, if you're involved in an accident which is your fault and you are sued for an amount which exceeds your auto bodily injury liability, your personal umbrella could pick up the excess amount less your deductible. The same theory would apply on your home policy liability limits. In short, yes, we do recommend that everyone have a personal umbrella policy. Please contact us for more information.

Q Are all Auto Rates in Massachusetts the same?
