Making Waves? Protect Your Boat...

Winston Salem, NC 7/8/2014

With a policy from Wilson Insurance, you’ll get comprehensive coverage that covers many types of losses. It will cover, for example, damages resulting from a collision, fire or lightening. We offer:

  • Up to $500 in coverage for boating equipment and accessories at no additional cost
  • Payments up to $250 per occurrence for emergency towing to the nearest marina, if your boat is disabled or stranded on the water
  • $1,000 coverage of non-owned property
  • $500 fire extinguisher recharge

For an additional premium or fee, we also offer optional coverage such as uninsured boater protection. This coverage protects you should you be involved in a boating accident caused by a hit-and-run boater or a boater who has no insurance. Credits are available, too, for things like radars, built-in fire extinguishing systems and ship-to-shore radios.

So, if you have a boat or are thinking about getting one, contact us. We will review your coverage and help ensure that your boat is properly insured.

The Five Costliest Traffic Tickets for Auto Insurance
1/15/2018

Those whirling blue lights in the rearview mirror usually mean just one thing: It's traffic ticket time. The worse the violation, the more your car insurance costs may rise because it's more likely you'll be considered a bigger risk to the insurer.  Rack up a combination of the nastiest violations plus a few accidents, and insurers may even refuse to cover you, says Loretta Worters, spokeswoman for the Insurance Information Institute, a trade group.

 
It boils down to matching the premium you pay to your risk as a customer, says State Farm spokesman Dick Luedke. "Sometimes you get lucky and violate (traffic laws) a lot and don't get caught, and sometimes you do it once, and you are caught," he says. "That's why we use all sorts of other things to measure risk as well." So it's tough to say how much your insurance premiums will rise per violation. Different insurers calculate premium costs differently, Worters says. With the help of experts, including J. Robert Hunter, insurance director for the Washington, D.C.-based Consumer Federation of America, we now identify what are considered the five worst traffic violations for your insurance bills:
