How to Prepare for a Treasure Coast Motorcycle Trip

We live in a beautiful state one of the biggest things to do around the Sebastian and Vero Beach area is go for a nice ride. Whether it’s just up Beachside on A1A or across the state. The wind in your hair and the open road of freedom. But where do you start when planning this wonderful adventure?

Sebastian Insurance has a few tips for your next trip:

Let’s start with always packing pretty light and do a little research on where you plan to travel. You can always switch up your route but just get a general idea of the areas you’ll be around. There is many websites to help you with travel plans Harley Davidson’s ride planner is just one.

Take as many breaks as you need to. When you’re tired rest, this will definitely help ensure a safe ride. After all you’re not in a rush. This is for enjoyment.

Booking hotels before you show up is always a good idea for better rates. There are wonderful hotels with great rates around the treasure coast to stay at so this shouldn’t be a problem.

Make sure you tell friends or family members where you’re going and about when you’ll be back. This is to ensure that if anything does happen someone will know when to expect you back and report the authorities if you do not.

As I mentioned earlier to pack light, what does that really mean, one riders light packing may not be another’s. So here is a general guide:

It may be hard but stay light on the clothes, be prepared to wear the same thing for a few days. There is always laundry mats you can stop at on a nice break.

Spare Keys and emergency contact numbers. This means friends, family, roadside assistance and of course US your insurance company.

If you’re unsure about something you want to bring then just forget it. If worst comes to worst you can most likely buy it somewhere if you really need it.

One of the most crucial things to do before a trip is to make sure your motorcycle is current with all maintenance. Do a full inspection before you hit the big open road. Always carry a repair and emergency kit with you. And since you are packing a little more for a farther travel try to distribute the weight load on your bike as even as possible.

Don’t “DIY” With Insurance…

Don’t “DIY” With Insurance…

Being Americans we love our Independence. We love to dabble in “Do It Yourself” projects all the time. From cooking to fixing appliances around our homes. Why not? Makes you feel good and most of the time can save you big bucks. That’s Excellent! But there are some things we should leave to the experts like flying an airplane, race car driving, and Insurance policies. You wouldn’t trust someone who wasn’t educated in aviation fly your airplane would you?

Today there are so many websites and toll free lines you can call to “get cheaper insurance right now” but there’s always a price. Maybe not right away of course when you do it yourself your goal is to save as much money as possible the premium may sound wonderful but how is your coverage?0068777F1_Toasted-Coconut-and-Orange-Icebox-Cookies_s4x3.jpg.rend.sni12col.landscape

Think of the first time you baked a batch of cookies, not as good as maybe say Chef Emerald. Would you want to take that chance with your Dwelling coverage? You’ll be tempted to keep this amount low. Dwelling is part of your home policy that protects you from fire, wind and hail. If a situation happens and your home becomes “uninhabitable” are you absolutely positive you’re covered. What about your possessions and other structures around your home? I wouldn’t want to take a chance. Especially in The Sebastian and Vero Beach areas come hurricane season no one should be questioning their policies. This number should be enough to rebuild your house from the ground up. That doesn’t necessarily mean the amount you paid for it either. This requires knowledge on local building cost and square footage of your home. Our agents’ are educated in this area to make sure your dwelling price is correct for you.

Another piece of the insurance puzzle is deductibles. A deductible is the amount you agree to pay towards a claim. Setting your deductible high will reduce your premium but what if you’re deductible is too high? Well you can say goodbye to your coverage. Our Agents’ will make sure your deductible isn’t too high. We don’t want you to chase those immediate savings and put your future at risk.Money House

Standard home policies usually do include some of your personal possessions. Your dwelling amount is part of this too. Your coverage is usually set to 50 and 70 percent of your limit. An example would be if you had $200,000 worth of dwelling coverage, $100,000 to $140,000 would protect your personal belongings. But what if you have some special valuables? Collectibles, Music Equipment, Jewelry Etc. Well if they’re stolen or destroyed wouldn’t you want to be completely comfortable knowing they’re covered. At our office we make sure that you’re completely covered for all of your items. Our Licensed Agents’ will help schedule endorsements and extend your coverage to where you need it.

Now on to liability. There is two different types of liability insurance that can help you if someone is injured on your property. Personal protection and Medical coverage most “Do it yourselfers” don’t realize their limits and what they really mean. With Personal liability if someone gets hurt and sues you it helps pay for legal defenses usually up to $100,000 so what happens if the case against you more than $100,000? The cookie crumbles. Medical liability is there if someone doesn’t sue and again this number is usually set low at around $1,000. We all know when it comes to Doctor visits that number can be met in no time. You will be responsible for everything over $1,000. Still have a sweet tooth for quick savings?

Another temptation for a DIY-er’s is when the beautiful day of no more mortgage comes around! There’s no law requiring you to have home insurance. But there is also no law that will help you if a robber breaks in and gets away with all of your possessions you used to make those wonderful cookies.

It’s great to do some things on your own but there is professionals out there for a reason. Sometimes you shouldn’t take the chance. Especially when that chance can wind up costing you up to or more than $100,000.

Check Your Fire Alarms!

An excellent way to prevent a horrible disaster from happening to you and your family would be to check your smoke alarm batteries twice a year. The best way to remember this is to do it during daylight savings.

Some information about smoke alarms:

Where do I put smoke alarms in my home?

  • You should put a smoke alarm on every floor, bedroom, and hallway outside of each sleeping area.
  • Choose smoke alarms that communicate with each other, so that if one alarm sounds they all will.
  • Place smoke alarms on the ceiling or high on the wall.
  • Only qualified electricians should install hardwired smoke alarms.

**Some fire departments will install battery-operated smoke alarms in your home at no cost!**

Contact any non-emergency fire department number in the Sebastian and Vero Beach area for more information.
