The annual meeting of the members of Albany Mutual Insurance Company will be held at Paul’s Paradice in Albany on March 12th, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. Food will be served and door prizes will be given out following the business meeting.
Monthly meetings are the first Thursday of every month, but are not open to the public. If you have a concern, call the manager or a board member to have it put on the agenda.
Be aware that burning permits are required for any burning of trash, grass, brush, etc. These regulations are strictly enforced by the DNR and other law enforcement. Be fine, don't get fined, obtain a permit and follow the rules. Your insurance coverage may be at stake.
Are you unsure about the requirements for safely using wood or other solid fuels? Or, would you like information on the proper installation requirements such as wall clearances, etc.? You may pick up a copy of Fire Safety in Solid Fuel Burning Systems at our office.
Fire extinguishers, surge protectors and water leakage warning devices are available to our policyholders for purchase from the Albany office at reasonable prices. We have extinguishers in 10 lb., 5 lb., and 2.5 lb. sizes..
Q I live
in Avon and I have insurance with your company. But I am buying a cabin
outside your sales territory. Will I have to find a company close to
my cabin for insurance?
Q I bought a home in the country like
I always wanted. But now my insurance company raised my rates. They
say it's because I'm too far from a fire department and I don't have
city water. Is there help for this?
Q I live in St. Paul and I've bought
a summer place in Little Falls. I see it's in your territory, but can
you insure my summer place, since I don't live in your territory?
Q I have fire and wind insurance with
your company on a homeowner's package. But now a different agent tells
me I can save a bundle by buying it and my auto insurance from his big
company. What do you think?
Q I am buying an older home and I want
to completely renovate it before I move in. I would redo the plumbing
and electrical as we will have a lot of new appliances and I will be
knocking down the old plaster anyway. The house has new steel siding
and windows but the roofing is pretty bad. The roof could wait, but
would I save anything on insurance by doing it now?
Q I hear there is a lot of difference
between the farm rates of different mutual fire insurance companies.
How does your company compare with others in your area?
Q When you're talking insurance it's
all Greek to me. Are there any agents who will explain what I need and
tell me how much to buy?
Q I'm retiring and I'm trying
to decide whether to build a new home or buy an older home of the same
value. Is there an insurance cost advantage in either one?
