What Is Insurance?

We are facing a health pandemic. Not just us in the United States, but all over the world. Things are uncertain and many of us have been caught off guard, fueling what can look like hysteria – a frenzy of buying disinfectants, packaged foods, and, for some unknown reason, toilet paper.

If we are fortunate, we will be able to look back on this time and say everything was an overreaction. But right now, there is massive uncertainty. How would we feel if we had prepared for this moment? If we had taken the insuring steps of having some basic supplies on hand?

Quite possibly less concerned. Not with the welfare of the population, but with our own needs. If our lives are organized in a way that considers uncertainty, we plan to have things like…extra canned goods, extra dry goods, a well-stocked freezer, a filled gas tank, a little cash on hand, basic medical supplies and…extra toilet paper!

To us, this isn’t wild-eyed, end of days stuff. It’s just insurance, which is what we’re all about. When we prepare properly, we can trust we’ve built a solid foundation of insurance and that will give us the piece of mind that allows us to stay calm in a sea of panic. Whether it’s having great coverage on our health, our home, our cars, our things or having a few extra cans of food, a first aid kit and, yes, some extra tp to cope with an unforeseen world event, insurance of all kinds is a great bargain. In fact, it’s an incredibly small price to pay for the calm in our homes and peace in our hearts.

And in fact, it’s incredibly easy to do when not in the middle of a world-wide health crisis. When it’s over, we have a huge opportunity to make sure we’re insured, and we’re not caught off guard again. Here at G.D. Herring, we want to be your partner in helping you prepare to protect your life from all the things that you can’t always insure for yourself. Let us know how we can help.

Classic Car Storage

How do you store a classic car? As with anything of value, carefully. If you’re like me, you’ve put a lot of resources into your collection, including money, attention and time. Classic cars are special, and while you can certainly use these guidelines in storing any car, these are my non-negotiable storage requirements for my personal collection.

Investing in Oriental Rugs – the Upside

When you buy a handmade rug from an original rug weaving country, you know you’re going to be able to enjoy it all your life. Your children are going to enjoy it. When you need to downsize in retirement, you may give the rug to a member of your family, your children, or your grandchildren and what they have will be worth a lot more than what you originally paid for it. That increase in value only comes from rugs made in original weaving countries.
