The Right Coverage for Virginia Residents

When you choose Mercury, you’re not only getting one of the best homeowners insurance companies in Virginia but also a local independent agent who works to create a custom plan that’s right for you.

ities all across Virginia deal with various weather conditions. Towns along the Atlantic Ocean, such as Virginia Beach, can experience devastating hurricanes and tropical storms. Virginia is also home to eight breathtaking mountain ranges, but dwellings in this type of terrain are susceptible to natural disasters like wildfires, floods, and landslides. No matter if you live in Norfolk, Richmond, or any other city in Virginia, your Mercury agent knows the ins and outs of your local area. You and your family will enjoy peace of mind knowing your home is properly protected.

Burglaries are another problem homeowners face aside from severe weather. The Federal Bureau of Investigation reported nearly 7,500 burglaries across Virginia in 2019. That’s millions of dollars in damages and stolen property done to homes like yours. Bodily injury, property damage, and medical payments to guests are other common claims that Virginia homeowners may encounter. Regardless of the incident, our claims team will ensure you get back on your feet as soon as possible. Here are some of the homeowners insurance coverage options to help safeguard you and your home:
