Myth No 2: Thieves are more likely to steal new cars. FALSE
Myth No 3: My insurance will cover me if my car is stolen, vandalized or damaged by hail or fire. (FALSE-UNLESS YOU PURCHASE COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE)
Myth No 4: If my car is totaled, my insurance will pay off what I owe on my loan or lease. (FALSE-UNLESS YOU PURCHASE GAP COVERAGE)
Myth No 5: My insurance company will pay for a rental car if my car is stoled or damaged in an accident. (FALSE-UNLESS YOU PURCHASE RENTAL REIMBURSEMENT COVERAGE)

How to Avoid a Technology Disaster!

While a good insurance policy may provide you with protection for your electronic hardware (hint: add it as a scheduled item on your policy), the most valuable component may be your data, which is not covered by the policy. How many programs, data files, music files, movies, and pictures do you have loaded on your electronic devices? What a sickening feeling to consider the loss of all of your precious data…

For those of us in hurricane prone areas, we realize that portability is a key component of any disaster preparedness plan, however, since your backup device could fail, or be burned, blown away or flooded, backing up data into cyberspace may be the best solution of all. Check out Carbonite ( ) or another online backup provider to protect irreplaceable files.

Also, we have begun the Countdown to the official start of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season, which is only a couple of weeks away. Don’t forget there is a 30-day waiting period for flood insurance. Check out, your Trusted Choice agent, for information on this and other hurricane preparedness advice.
