HOME

HOME, RENTERS AND CONDO INSURANCE

Our homeowners, renters, and condo insurance policies provide protection for your most important place – your home! Unlike many national companies, we write our policies right here in Montana and are committed to providing exceptional service right from our office in Missoula. No mater where you live, we have coverage to help you protect the things that matter most to you.

Most people don’t realize how much they have invested in their belongings, or how much they rely on them. Our homeowners policy automatically provides specified amounts of coverage for your household personal property. We automatically insurance your household personal property for its actual cash value. For a small additional premium, you can obtain replacement cost coverage.

Most policies are broken into three primary groups and you’ll need to be familiar with your risk and need to discuss with your agent:

  1. Basic – Most plans include: fire/lightening, windstorm/hail, explosion, riot/civil commotion, smoke, vandalism, theft, collision, and damage by aircraft or vehicles
  2. Broad – Most plans include: All of #1 Basic, plus: falling objects, weight of ice/snow/sleet, accidental tearing apart, accidental discharge, freezing, electrical damage, and volcanic action
  3. Risk of Direct Loss – Most plans include: all of #1 Basic and #2 Broad, plus: other direct losses, expect those specifically excluded in the policy. 

For those homes that may not qualify for a homeowner’s coverage or for dwellings that are rented to others, our dwelling policy can meet the owner’s needs. We can offer coverage from single family units to four family units whether they are owner occupied or rented to others.

Our coverage is flexible; we can write replacement cost values or depreciated (actual cash value) values on your property. We write coverage in town or in rural locations, and offer deductible options to meet the owners’ needs. Seasonal dwellings may qualify.

Your landlord’s insurance likely only covers the property and not your stuff. But renters insurance covers it all from clothes and furniture to electronics and more. And with many policies, you’re reimbursed for the cost of your belongings, not their depreciated cash value. Rest easy knowing your things are safe with a policy designed for peace of mind.

We have condo insurance options from basic to enhanced, designed to protect you and your belongings in the event of a unforeseen qualifying event. Personal liability can provide coverage when you’re legally responsible for certain damages. This can include situations where someone is injured on your property and coverage may include:

  • The cost to defend you in a lawsuit related to injury or property damage, do to a covered occurrence
  • Losses related to credit cards, ATM cards or checks in the event of a theft or unauthorized use, up to your applicable limit
  • Costs, up to your applicable limit, which the condo association assesses on all unit owners due to a loss on common property which exceeds the master policy limit.
  • Enhanced options may include replacement cost coverage on contents including the full cost to repair or replace most personal property with no deduction for depreciation up the the applicable limit in the policy.
  • Enhanced options may also include increased limits of liability for certain special items of personal property including Jewelry, silverware, fine arts, furs, cameras, musical instruments, and personal computers. 

Here are just a few of the many discounts available through our network of insurance providers. Don’t see a discount you’d expect? Please ask our staff for more information and to discuss your unique insurance situation.

Here’s how we can help you save:

  • Security alarm or related devices
  • Smoke detectors
  • Fire alarms
  • Deadbolt locks
  • Fire suppression system (fire sprinklers)
  • Fire extinguishers 

Tailor your policy to how you live with flexible options from Jacobsen Agency Insurance. No matter your living situation, odds are we have a policy with the protection you and your family needs.

Our complete coverage will help you reduce risk and maximize your time spent focussed on doing what you do best — being passionate about your business.

Each business is unique and each industry requires a tailored approach to providing the best protection and risk reduction. That’s why our commercial insurance products are sourced from a network of providers who offer almost every type of commercial insurance product for a wide range of industries and business risks. Here are a few of our most common commercial products:

  • Commercial General Liability Insurance – covers damages and provides defense against lawsuits for many common types of business risk.
  • Property Insurance – coverage for buildings, business personal property, and in many cases, loss of business income and extra expenses.
  • Workers Compensation Insurance – your employees are the lifeblood of your business – we help protect them with risk control guidance and workers compensation coverage to help keep your business running smoothly.

Our small business solutions are perfect for almost any budget and offer the protection you need to keep going strong. After all, we love working with small businesses just like ours to build a stronger community in Western Montana. Here are a few of the ways we can help.

  • Business owner’s policy – the best recommendation for many small businesses, a BOP combines both property and liability insurance and covers your business in the event of covered events such as things like property damage, suspended operations due to a covered event, or a lawsuit resulting from bodily injury or property damage to others.
  • Commercial auto insurance – small commercial business auto coverage offers affordable coverage for everything from basic liability to uninsured, underinsured and physical damage coverage – all at a price you can afford.
  • Umbrella insurance – you can plan for the worst and sometimes Murphy’s Law goes just beyond your coverage. That’s where umbrella coverage comes in. With an umbrella liability policy in place, your business can survive even a catastrophic claim. 
  • Workers compensation insurance – add workers compensation coverage to a variety of policy types to round out your protection. Workers comp coverage provides benefits to employees for work related injuries and includes medical care and a portion of lost wages when the employee is unable to work due to a qualifying work-related event.

Business is the lifeblood of our community and your success is our success. That’s why we offer coverage from a network of more than 10 insurance carriers to ensure your policy offers the best possible coverage for your unique business and industry. Our experienced team specializes in providing a tailored insurance solution that perfectly fits both your business and budget. Please contact us for a consultation and proposal including our best policy and risk-reduction recommendations.

  • Auto insurance – covers your owned, leased, non-owned, and hired vehicles as well as the drivers operating them.
  • Employee benefits – including coverage for group life and disability, and leave of absence administration.
  • General liability – covers you and your employees if your business is named in a lawsuit.
  • Excess liability – increases limits over your existing umbrella policy for more protection against catastrophic events.
  • Surety bonds – contract, commercial, and fidelity bonds for regional, national, and multi-national businesses.
  • Workers compensation – covers your employees in the event of a work-related injury and covers lost wages and medical expenses.
  • Umbrella insurance – increased coverage for catastrophic events above your existing policy amounts.
