Are you protecting your castle?

It has been said that a man is the king of his castle and a women is the queen of hers.  In olden times, people used to work hard to acquire larger and larger houses, until eventually some literally lived in a castle.

Now from what we know about those times, what did every castle have around it?  A Wall or a moat.

Why did they have the wall or moat?  It was to keep out those infamous marauding bands.

Let me ask you, how effective would the wall be if it was twenty feet high on one side and only two feet high on the other?  Or a moat that twelve feet deep on one side six inches deep on another?

Suppose that a wall of the correct height was built, but every so often there was a hole large enough to let a horse and rider through. How effective would that wall be?

Today it is highly impractical to have a 20′ wall or a moat around your property.

What serves as the wall today is insurance!

A property structured insurance program should allow everyone to have a wall that is of the right height for their particular castle.  It shouldn’t be too big, nor too small.

Nor should it have holes.  There are a number of things that we might compare to holes.  These can be:

  • A major car wreck
  • A house fire
  • Premature death
  • Lengthy disability
  • Long term illness
  • A law suit

Here at my agency, our job is to work with you to make sure you have the right coverage.  We call this process “risk analysis.”  It’s that simple.
