Don't wait until you file a claim to find out if you have the proper protection for your bike.
Think your homeowners or renters insurance properly covers your bike? Think again. If you ever need to file a claim, you may be shocked to discover that your current policy is filled with exclusions and restrictions that limit what you can get in replacement costs for your damaged or stolen bike.
While it may be true that homeowners insurance personal property coverage could provide support for bicycle theft, some homeowners policies may have low coverage limits for things like sporting goods equipment. A low coverage limit combined with a high deductible means bicycle owners may be faced with the majority of the cost to replace their bikes. That's why having a separate bicycle insurance policy can ensure that no matter how high the value of a bike, it’s covered in times of crisis.
