What is specialty insurance?

From motorcycle insurance to boat insurance, protect your unique items.

We hear it all the time: "Specialty insurance? What's that and why do I have it or why do I need it?"

In simple terms, specialty insurance coverage is exactly what it sounds like: It's insurance that can be purchased for items that are special or unique. Specialty insurance policies are important for items that are not typically covered under other insurance policies.

Type of Specialty Insurance Coverage Available

Consider the items you own that are not covered by other insurance policies. For example, what vehicles do you drive that aren't included on your auto insurance policy? What additional coverage is required to protect your home in the event of a flood? Specialty insurance policies complement your existing auto, home and umbrella policies.
