Mobile home insurance

Mobile home insurance is a type of homeowners insurance specifically for mobile homes. It can also be called manufactured home insurance.

A mobile home is a prefabricated residence that includes living space and the means to transport it. This means that mobile homes can be moved from one location to another.

An insurance policy for mobile homes provides coverage for physical damage as well as contents of the home, and many policies also come with an endorsement for personal liability coverage in case someone gets injured on your property.

Mobile home insurance policies work just like a regular home insurance policy.

What mobile home insurance covers in Alberta

In general, a mobile home insurance policy protects your mobile home from damage due to fire, theft, or vandalism, and it covers the cost of repairs in those instances. 

The coverage may include things like living expenses following a disaster and/or coverage for your personal belongings.

Coverage on your mobile home is an essential part of keeping you and your property safe. Mobile homes are often more vulnerable to damage than traditional houses because they may  not be as sturdy and are sometimes left unoccupied for long periods of time.

Submitting a mobile home insurance claim with Knight Archer

It’s always stressful when your house gets damaged or your belongings go missing and you have to submit a claim, but we’re here to help make it as painless as possible. 

The first step is to call your Knight Archer broker and tell them everything that happened. It isn’t always easy dealing with an insurance company directly and going through your broker means that we’ll take over and contact your insurance company for you. We know what questions to ask to make sure you’ll get everything you’re entitled to from your policy.

We’ll guide you through the process and let you know where you’ll need to show proof of purchase, pictures, and an estimate of the damage. 

If you rent out your home, you'll need information about who rented from you and how much they paid. If damage happens because of a natural disaster or an act of terrorism, further investigation will happen. The insurance company will ask for proof that this event took place before paying out any money.

Seasonal home insurance

Seasonal home insurance is the type of coverage you can purchase for just a specific time of year or season. It is also known as seasonal homeowner insurance, seasonal property insurance, seasonal cabin insurance, or lake home insurance. This type of coverage can be used for your lake home, cabin, or any other kind of seasonal property.

You need this coverage to protect your seasonal property against physical damage and liability.

A seasonal property policy typically costs less than a standard annual policy because it only covers the period for which it is purchased - typically between six to eight months out of the year.

Factors that affect the cost of seasonal home insurance

Several factors determine the price of insurance, including the type of policy, the duration of the policy, and your personal details.

For example, the year your seasonal house was built affects the cost of your home insurance. The type of heating used inside the home has an impact as well.  

However, the biggest factor that affects how much your policy costs is the location of your seasonal home which is determined by the postal code. The farther away from a responding fire station your home is, for example, the more you’ll see your seasonal insurance policy cost.

I went to this Knight Archer office to get a few important documents notarized. I was received by a staff at the counter and transferred my request to an official who dealt with my request. The notary who helped me with my documents provided me with the best service I've ever received thus far in Canada. She was very much courteous with the service and I just want to point out that Knight Archer staff does very well treating their customers. I appreciate it very much and encourage the management to continue doing the same.
