Frequently asked questions about home and auto bundle insurance

Is bundling home and auto insurance right for everyone in North Carolina?

Bundling your coverage can be one of the best ways to save on insurance. It also can be convenient to have all of your coverage with the same insurer. By bundling, you have one insurance company and can check all your coverages on a single website.

However, bundling might not always be the wisest option. For example, an insurer that offers a great deal on auto insurance might charge higher rates on homeowners insurance. In such a circumstance, you might be better off purchasing your auto insurance from one insurer and your homeowners coverage from another.

In addition, it is possible that an insurer might offer the coverage options you need for one type of insurance but not for the other.

Rather than simply assuming that a bundle is your best deal, it always pays to shop around.

“Remember when buying insurance that you’re doing so to protect your most valuable assets,” says Christine O’Brien, president of the Insurance Council of New Jersey. “Take the time to learn about policy limits and coverages and get several quotes.”

How can you switch to a home and auto bundle in North Carolina?

Switching to a bundle is easy. Many people make this change when one of their policies is up for renewal. For example, if your auto insurance is with one company and your homeowners insurance is with another, you can decide to bundle your coverage with a single insurer the next time the coverage term for one of the two policies ends.

However, you do not have to wait until renewal to bundle your policies. If you decide to cancel one of your policies prior to the end of its coverage term, you should receive a refund for the months you will no longer be insured with the company.

If you decide to end coverage on one of your policies, be careful not to do so until you are sure your new coverage is in place and has been activated.

Methodology
