Our staff at Insurance Service Center cannot stress enough to homeowners that now is the time to invest in home insurance coverage. We always impress on our clients that they need home insurance, but if they have not heeded our advice before, there is no time like the present. Why do we urge home insurance to homeowners at our locations in North Carolina? One word: Hurricanes.
Honestly, there are a hundred different reasons why homeowners should have home insurance. Disasters happen unexpectedly. However, the beginning of June until the end of November every year signifies the Atlantic Hurricane Season. North Carolina hurricanes have proven time and time again that they are not just coastal events.
Insurance Service Center has office locations in Fayetteville, Hope Mills, Lumberton, Apex, Sanford, Clinton and Lillington in North Carolina. Just two years ago, many of our areas saw significant damage from Hurricane Matthew. Wind gusts reached up to 67 MPH at the Lumberton airport. Hope Mills, NC saw over 17 inches of rainfall. The Lumber River flooded and thousands of area residents were displaced and out of power for significant amounts of time. You just never know when disaster will strike.
For some of our clients further up in central North Carolina, in areas like Sanford and Lillington, the biggest threat from the hurricane season may not be flooding, but instead, the tornadoes that spawn from the hurricanes. North Carolina averages around 30 tornadoes every year. While not all home insurance coverages will cover natural disasters like flooding and earthquakes, most will offer coverage for fires, wind damage, lightning strikes and hail.
