Spring is almost here. There is nothing better than hitting the open road in your RV.  Don’t forget you need the right kind of RV insurance to protect you. That is where we can help you. Many State laws require you to maintain liability coverage on your vehicle. Here is a schedule of insurance coverage you might consider:

Liability Insurance

Auto Liability coverage, also known as “property damage/bodily injury”, can help cover expenses from damaging a vehicle or injuring a person in an accident. 

Collision coverage

Collision coverage helps pay for damage to your vehicle if you hit another vehicle, another vehicle hits you, or your vehicle rolls over. Collision coverage can be required if your vehicle is financed or leased.

Comprehensive coverage

Comprehensive insurance helps pay for damage to your vehicle not caused by collision. Examples include damage or loss due to theft, vandalism, falling objects, fire, storms, and flood.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage helps pay for repairs if your RV is damaged in an accident by an underinsured, uninsured, or unidentified driver. It also helps pay medical costs.

Medical payments coverage

Medical payments coverage helps pay medical costs for you and your passengers in the event of an accident, regardless of who is at fault.

Rental reimbursement coverage

This coverage helps pay for your rental car or other transportation if the RV cannot be driven due to an at-fault accident or comprehensive claim. This is really important especially if you are out of town.

Towing and labor coverage

Towing and labor coverage reimburses you for towing charges if an insured vehicle is disabled. It also covers on-site assistance, such as battery jump-start, tire change, and locksmith services. We recommend this on all recreation vehicles.

Many of us love to ride the Arkansas highways on our motorcycles. Taking a ride with family and friends on a fresh crisp weekend is pure joy. Providing Motorcycle Insurance is what we do.  

All motorcycles on the road are required by law to have motorcycle insurance. Motorcycle insurance protects a motorcycle and its owner in the event of a loss. The term motorcycle policy encompasses motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, snowmobiles, ATVs, and golf carts

But as we all know, safety must be a primary concern. Here are a few tips:

  • Have an annual insurance review. We can help you find the right combination of coverage and price, and we provide outstanding customer service can provide you with the right combination on coverage and price.
  • Wear a Helmet. Buy a full-face helmet for the best protection for your head and eyes. A motorcycle rider not wearing a helmet is 40 percent more likely to sustain a fatal head injury in a crash than a rider wearing a helmet.  A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study reports that, "Helmets saved 1,483 motorcyclists lives in 2009, and 732 more could have been saved if all motorcyclists had worn helmets."  
  • Wear other protective gear as well; heavy leather or synthetic gloves, long pants and jacket, and over-the-ankle leather boots.  Leathers can keep you warm and protected.
  • More than 90 percent of riders involved in accidents had never taken a formal motorcycle driving course. Get to know your bike’s capabilities, like how it performs on a curve or slick roads, and you’ll become a much safer rider. Errors like over-braking, driving too fast and under-cornering are major factors in most solo mishaps.
  • Driving impaired is more deadly for cyclers than other drivers. In fact, more than half of all motorcycle deaths occur when the rider has been drinking.
  • Service your bike to make sure it is working correctly. 

Have a great time on your bike, be safe and call us with any questions. Kohler and Green represents many fine motorcycle companies including Progressive, Formost, American Modern and Dairyland.  Call us today for a quote!

Automobile accidents happen every day. That is one reason you should have Arkansas auto insurance through Kohler & Green Insurance. Although no one wants to experience an auto accident, knowing what to do in case one happens to you could soften the impact on your life in the days and weeks to follow. You purchase Arkansas auto insurance to help you through accidents, if and when, they happen. Here are a few suggestions to help you:

At the Scene

The first priority is to check for injuries at the scene. Call for medical help if anyone at the scene is injured. Notify the police as soon as   possible.


Obtain the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all persons involved, including passengers and witnesses. It is a good idea to look at drivers licenses. Record the license plate numbers of all cars involved. Get complete Insurance information, including policy numbers. Having the agents name and number is also beneficial.


Never admit an accident was your fault, even if you think it was. An apology can be construed as an admission of fault. Let the authorities determine who was responsible. Auto accidents can be disorienting even if you are not physically injured. You may not be aware of all factors leading up to the crash.


Contact your insurance company as soon as possible, even if damages are minor. 
In some cases you also must report the accident to the DVM.


You have the right take your car to the repair shop of your choice. It can be beneficial to get two quotes as pricing and quality vary.


Use your smart phone to take pictures before vehicles are moved. It provides documentation. 

 

 

It is that time of year when many of us give that special person in our lives a gift that they will enjoy year round. Valentine’s gifts typically include watches, jewelry, art, cameras and other valuable items.

CNN reports that Valentine’s gift spending will reach $18.6 billion dollars this year. $4.4 billion dollars will be spent on jewelry alone. Other interesting Valentine’s Day facts:

·         $1.6 billion dollars -- The amount people will spend on candy.

·         $1.9 billion dollars -- The amount people will spend on flowers.

·         40.7% -- The percentage of people who will use their Smartphone to purchase Valentine's gifts.

·         151 million -- The approximate number of cards that are exchanged on Valentine's Day.

 

Whatever you may do this year, if you purchase an expensive item for that special person, make sure you get it insured. Most homeowners or renters insurance policies restrict coverage for items like jewelry to $1,000 dollars.  In addition, most policies cover named perils for fire and theft, etc.; however, they may exclude coverage for the ring that gets flushed down the toilet; that is unless the expensive item is scheduled. To cover such circumstances that the insurance industry has dubbed “mysterious disappearance”, you will need a valuable articles personal property endorsement on your homeowners or renters policy.
