TIS Insurance Services

Personal Lines

At TIS, we have a very serious approach to personal insurance and recognize that your situation is unique. We consider it a privilege that you would allow us to assist in protecting your personal assets. Our competitive advantage lies in providing our clients with customized solutions. We represent a number of financially strong insurance companies to ensure that once we identify your needs, we can deliver the insurance products that are right for you. That is just the beginning.

After your insurance program is in place, we are there to provide continued advice, particularly in the unfortunate event of a claim — the time when you need us most. Each personal insurance client at TIS has a designated personal account manager available to oversee the day-to-day details of their account. With well over one hundred combined years of experience within our division, we have the expertise and knowledge to appropriately meet your personal insurance needs.

Homeowner’s Insurance

Your home is perhaps your most valuable asset. Get the advice you need to make sure you are properly protected and not surprised in the event of a claim. While many view homeowners’ coverage as a commodity, the fact is that not all policies are the same. For example, many insurers have abandoned guaranteed replacement cost coverage, the provision that insures your house will be rebuilt following a total loss, regardless of your limits or cost. We will advise you on this issue. And you will want an agent who can explain the policy limits for jewelry, furs, and other valuables and who will explain ways to broaden these coverages if needed, before a loss. Come to TIS for true individualized counseling so that you can rest easier knowing that your property is properly covered.

Automobile Insurance

Do you have sufficient automobile liability limits? Will you be protected against liability claims in the event you are involved in an at-fault accident? Most individuals do not understand how the personal automobile policy responds to these exposures. At TIS, we want to make sure you understand this issue so that you can select the liability limits right for your financial situation. In addition, we will advise you on this and other issues such as whether you need to purchase liability coverage when you rent a car and which deductibles are the most cost efficient. Let us advise you on the most effective way to manage these risks.

Please note:

Flood is not a standard coverage on the Homeowner’s policy. It is a policy that can be purchased separately for an additional premium. Earthquake is also not a standard coverage on the Homeowner’s policy, but it can be purchased for an additional premium and included on the Homeowner’s policy.

Watercraft Insurance

The increased popularity of water sports and personal watercraft make liability coverage more challenging. TIS Insurance Services has the right relationships to secure the coverage you need to protect yourself and your marine assets.
