Whether you purchased a brand new RV or a fixer-upper, eventually you will upgrade or update the interior. Another area of upgrade is your engine and electrical.
When you make these upgrades, you also need to update your RV insurance. You purchase a policy that insures your vehicle at a specific value. When you renovate your RV, you raise its value. Your insurance, until you update it, still reflects the original purchase value.
The process of updating proves pretty simple. You call or email Colling Insurance Services Inc. serving Lakewood, CO to discuss your upgrades. We may be able to view the updates via a Zoom call or another video service or we might need to visit the RV to see the updates in person.
Your insurance agent will calculate a new premium for you based on your updated value. You begin benefitting from your upgraded policy as soon as you switch from the old premium payment to the new one.
So, what qualifies as an upgrade? Many items qualify. It could be as simple as painting your interior or replacing its furniture. Purchasing new appliances for it also qualifies. You might wallpaper the interior or update the bathroom with new faucets.
If you switch your RV from using propane to solar, you need to update your insurance policy. Also, upgrading your mechanical systems can cause you to need an RV insurance update. Improving the suspension with SumoSprings, adding a steering stabilizer, or choosing a new motor raises the value of your RV. So does upgrading the air conditioning or heaters.
Contact Colling Insurance Services Inc. serving Lakewood, CO before you make your upgrades to learn how they will affect your insurance or after you made them to quickly update your insurance. In your bid to make your RV a rolling luxury palace, don’t forget to upgrade the insurance to protect your investment.
