Tips to Prepare Your Car For Wet Winter Weather

Fall is here, and that means winter is close behind it. Unfortunately, many car accidents happen during wet or icy weather. Here at Alliance Insurance Services, serving the greater Arvada, CO area, we want to help you avoid as many accidents and mishaps as possible. Here are some tips to help you prepare your car for wet winter weather. 

Check Your Tires

One of the most important things to help prepare your car for wet winter weather is checking your tires. As you check your tires, you want to look for signs of damage to your tire, such as bulging along the seams or nails embedded in the tire. You also want to ensure your tires are inflated to the right amount of pressure. Finally, check the tread on your tires. If the tread is low, you should consider replacing the tires before you drive on wet or icy roads. 

Replace Your Windshield Wipers

Another important thing that you should do to prepare your car for wet winter weather is to replace your windshield wipers. You should also check your wiper fluid levels and refill them if needed. You want to ensure that you can see as you drive, and a streaky windshield makes it harder to see the road. 

Test Your Battery

Lastly, consider having your battery tested before winter. While a bad battery will not lead to an accident, it can leave you stranded if you go out on a cold day. As such, testing it and replacing it before cold winter weather hits are strongly recommended.

Does home insurance cover dog bites?

In short, the answer is yes. Colorado law requires dog owners to have liability insurance if their dog bites someone and causes injury. However, it’s important to note that not all home insurance policies cover dog bites. So, if you’re an Arvada, CO resident with a dog, check with Alliance Insurance Services to see if you’re covered.

What Does Home Insurance Cover?

Home insurance protects you from financial loss if your home is damaged or destroyed. Homeowners’ insurance policies typically cover four types of perils: fire, windstorm, theft, and liability. Most policies also include some coverage for medical expenses incurred by injured guests on your property.

What Doesn’t Home Insurance Cover?

While home insurance covers many unexpected events, there are some things that it doesn’t cover. For example, most homeowners insurance policies exclude flooding and earthquakes. And as we mentioned before, not all policies cover dog bites. Other standard exclusions include damage caused by pests, wear and tear, and intentional acts.

Things to Consider When Shopping for Homeowners Insurance

Before you purchase homeowners insurance, carefully evaluate what you need and how much you’re willing to spend. Other factors to consider are the right amount of coverage and the total replacement cost of your home and belongings. You can estimate how much it would cost to rebuild your house and replace all your possessions if they were ruined or stolen.
