Protect What Matters Most! (How Important Is Your Home?)

One of our innate purposes as human beings is to protect what matters most, to us. It’s subconsciously engraved and even guides us in identifying our priorities.

Contrary to popular belief, home insurance, unlike car insurance, is not a requirement by law. You can legally own a home, without homeowners insurance.

The thought, however, of leaving the meeting place for your family, where you share love, memories and precious time together, wide open to the back door of risk, it need not be mandatory. We were made to protect!

Here at Marathon, your values are what guide every consideration we make when serving you. The coverage of your property depends greatly on a policy designed for you and the protection of your home. There is nothing like a natural disaster to test just what your property insurance is made of.

The last thing you would want, should your business suffer the misfortune of a loss, is a delay in getting back on track.

Before contracts are signed, we investigate your specific business needs, the risks seen and unseen that are involved and through our local and international insurance and reinsurance partners source appropriate insurance and risk management assessment and appraisal services.
