8 Tips for a Great BBQ

Are you throwing a barbecue this summer and want it to be better than your neighbors? Be sure to plan ahead and consider including these 8 tips into your BBQ to ensure that guests leave saying yours was the best all summer:

  1. Theme – Pick a theme to encourage party-goers to dress up. This will also help you pick the music for the fun day.
  2. Entertainment – Pair the music with the party theme and put out theme-related games out for everyone to play.
  3. What you Grill Matters – Don’t stick with the typical burgers and hot dogs. Opt for some shrimp and pepper kabobs or tri-tip steak.
  4. Safety First – Follow all grilling safety regulations and be sure to follow the appropriate safe food handling rules to ensure no guests leave with food poisoning. That will surely make the competition speed past you.
  5. Plan Ahead – Marinate your meat 24 hours ahead to ensure great flavor.
  6. Be Considerate – Account for any allergies or any vegan or vegetarian guests that probably won’t enjoy that nice hunk of meat you’ve got there on the grill. Have a variety beverage selections as well.
  7. Don’t be cheap – If you’re going to have a party, have a party. Don’t buy cheap meat that your guests won’t enjoy.
  8. Most importantly – ENJOY! Don’t spend the whole time grilling. Be sure to show your guests how much you appreciate their presence.

Summer Kid Safety Tips

Summer is a time for relaxing and fun, but all that can be ruined if one of your children are injured. It is important that you take the necessary safety precautions to ensure your summer is unforgettable for the right reasons.

  • Avoid tick bites by dressing your children in protective clothing and putting tick, insect, and bug repellant where skin is exposed. Also, try to keep your child away from overgrown grassy areas. After outdoor fun, you should perform a tick check on each family member in your home.
  • If your child will be using a bicycle, scooter, skates, rollerblades, skateboard, or any other fun riding equipment, be sure to follow helmet safety. Be a good example and wear a helmet yourself! They protect us from serious head injuries.
  • Be sure to practice sun safety. Dress your children in protective clothing and apply a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Sunscreen should be reapplied throughout the day.

Temporary Auto Insurance 101

If you are an infrequent driver, you may want to put your money towards a temporary car insurance policy as opposed to a long-term auto insurance policy. Temporary insurance policies are those that provide the necessary coverage for specific dates of driving. This type of insurance is not automatically renewable and is only suitable for those that fit the necessary criteria.

Criteria for Temporary Auto Insurance:

  • If you are between policies but still need to drive
  • If you are insuring a rental car for a cross-country road trip
  • If you will have house guests that need to drive for a short period of time
  • If you have temporary ownership of a vehicle
  • If you have a vehicle in storage that needs protection
  • If you have a car that you will be selling soon
  • If you have out of town visitors that will be using a car for a short period of time
  • If you have a college student home for vacation that will need to drive a car for a short period of time
  • If you need immediate drive-away insurance after you’ve just purchased a new car

Documents You’ll Need After An Accident

No matter how prepared you are, getting in an accident is a traumatizing experience that leaves you feeling stressed and overwhelmed. The best way to ease these worries is to prepare yourself for the unexpected so that you will be able to focus most of your time and energy on reliving the trauma. Compiled is a list of the essentials you should have in your car so that you will be better prepared if an accident were to occur:

  • Proof of Insurance – If you keep your insurance card with you or in your car, you’ll save the hassle of trying to prove you are insured. This will also help you avoid any penalties if you are pulled over for a traffic violation.
  • Vehicle Registration – You should have a physical copy of your vehicle registration in your car at all times. Like your insurance card, failure to provide proof may result in a fine by the DMV.
  • Accident Preparedness Kit – Have a camera, pen, and paper ready to take down the other driver’s license plate number, driver’s license number, make and model of the car, and auto insurance policy and company information.

Would I Benefit From An Umbrella Policy?

An umbrella policy offers additional protection for expenses that exceed your standard homeowners and liability insurance policies. The extra protection offered through an umbrella policy is relatively inexpensive and well worth the extra expense. Once you do the math, you’ll realize adopting an umbrella policy will only cost you about a $1 a day. Lawsuit numbers are on the rise and having an umbrella policy can help you avoid the hassle of dealing with a liability lawsuit that leaves you in financial ruin.

If you answer yes to any of the questions below, you would benefit from an umbrella policy:

  • Are your assets greater than my insurance liability limits?
  • Are you financially responsible for any children?
  • Do you own a Jacuzzi or pool?
  • Do you own a watercraft or off-road vehicle?
  • Do you own a rental property?
  • Do you invite guests into your home frequently?

Contact the insurance experts at Save-On Insurance Services to add an umbrella policy to your existing insurance coverage. We are available around the clock to help assess whether or not you would benefit from an umbrella policy.

Recent Grads Need Renters Insurance

Are you a recent graduate finally leaving dorm life and ready to move into your own apartment? With all the new responsibilities you will be taking on, preparing for the unexpected is one of the most important. Before you sign a lease or put a down payment down for a new place, be sure to get renters insurance.

What Renters Insurance Covers:

  • Vandalism
  • Theft
  • Explosion
  • Fire/Smoke
  • Lightning
  • Wind
  • Water Damage caused by burst pipes, floods from sink or bathtub, and other specific events. (Damage from floods are not covered and a separate policy is necessary for coverage)
  • Personal belongings
  • Liability Protection
  • Additional Living Expenses

Despite popular belief, as a renter, you are not covered under your landlord’s policy. Many people believe their personal possessions are covered under their landlord’s policy but this is not true. The other excuse people have for not obtaining renters insurance is that it is too expensive – wrong again. Renters insurance costs about $10-$20 each month. If you refrain from buying 4 coffee beverages each month you can afford renters insurance.

Contact the insurance experts at Save-On Insurance Services for all of your renters’ insurance needs. We are available around the clock to help you choose an appropriate renters’ insurance policy.
