What is mobile home insurance?

Mobile home insurance typically covers damage or destruction of the main structure of the mobile home due to weather/ storm damage, fire, theft or attempted theft, accidental damage, malicious damage or vandalism.

Parks are usually in exposed coastal locations with a higher risk of storm damage. Homes are usually unoccupied for the majority of the year so at a higher risk of break-ins etc.

Owners of a mobile home will need public liability cover in case someone is injured while in the mobile home. This is standard in mobile home insurance, although the amounts of cover can vary.

How much mobile home insurance do I need?

In addition to covering the home itself it’s a good idea to consider contents cover.

The contents of the mobile home may be covered. Contents would include household goods, personal effects, and luggage whilst contained in the unit.

As mobile homes are generally not as sturdy as a bricks and mortar home, valuables will not be covered by a mobile home insurance policy (although they may be covered under the owners home insurance policy).

Shed contents may be covered under the shed cover of the policy. The level of contents cover will be reflected in the mobile home insurance premium. Some policies will also offer new for old cover on contents.

Having the mobile home anchored in a mobile home park will affect the premium price as there will likely be maintenance checks, as well as increased security in a mobile home park.
