Introducing Thoughtful Service Line Coverage

by Michael Cousins | Nov 03, 2015
A service line connects your home with external service providers using underground pipe or wire. Service Line coverage provides protection from an unexpected loss caused by a service line failure, which is often unforeseen, costly, and not covered under most homeowners insurance policies.

What is a Service Line? 
Examples include electrical power; heating; natural gas; waste disposal; compressed air; water; steam; internet access; telecommunications services; wide area networks or data transmission.

Service Line coverage that really covers 
Many homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the underground service lines from the street to their home. 

We will pay to repair or replace the underground service line that is damaged as a result of: 
  • Wear and Tear
  • Rust or other corrosion, decay, deterioration, hidden or latent defect
  • Collapse; but not including sinkhole collapse
  • Electrical and mechanical or pressure systems breakdown
  • Freeze

  • We will also provide, as needed: 
  • Extra cost to make temporary repairs; or expedite permanent repairs or permanent replacements to your service line that is damaged as the result of a service line failure.
  • Additional living expense and rental value.
  • Green property replacement of up to 150% replacement cost.

  • Please talk to your local independent insurance agent about adding Service Line coverage to your Homeowners policy.
