A good device protection plan means that a damaged smartphone – new or old – won’t cost a fortune.
Allstate phone insurance is a type of device coverage that ensures you’ll get a quick repair or replacement if your smartphone suffers a disaster.
The right insurance company and plan make all the difference to the coverage you receive.
Allstate Insurance is exceptionally experienced in device coverage, as it has been providing Walmart’s Protection Plus plan for most of their products since 2018.
Anyone who has done any comparison shopping – or who has purchased coverage before – will quickly discover that there is a broad spectrum of plans out there, and they are all very different from each other. While some will provide a bare minimum of protection under extremely specific circumstances, when you talk to an experienced agent, you can ensure that the protection you purchase will cover your device in the way you expect it to.
The key to finding the perfect Allstate phone insurance plan is to contact an experienced local Allstate agent.
If you’re asking yourself “how do I find insurance agents near me,” the answer isn’t a difficult one if you’re in California. Kimberley Ellison has two local Allstate offices in the Santa Clarita area, a suburb of Los Angeles. As an experienced local agent, she understands the ins and outs of specialty plans like this.
A few weeks ago, Allstate re-opened their property insurance market to over 1000 zip codes in California and started offering an option to add 30 days free phone insurance with the start of a new homeowner’s policy. Having a knowledgeable agent is key when special promotions roll around like this one.
What should you expect from an Allstate phone insurance plan?
The Allstate Phone Protection Plus plan makes sure you have everything you need to ensure your broken phone will be rapidly fixed or replaced. The plan also includes SquareTrade premium tech support, as well as the insurance company’s own identity theft recovery coverage and even its roadside services.
How is your phone protected by this Allstate insurance policy?
- It covers battery failure, liquid damage, a cracked screen and more.
- It covers any phone, no matter its age, your carrier, or whether you own or lease it. If you switch your phone or your carrier, the coverage comes with you.
- It covers same-day phone repairs (where service is available).
Included in the premium tech support from the plan, you will have access to certified technicians and the assistance they provide, including setting up a new phone (transferring preferences, contacts and photos from your old device), restoring a backup, changing or updating your settings, and configuring various features. This support also provides you with assistance in enabling your Bluetooth, WiFi, smart home devices, or repair lost connections, in addition to software and app support.
The Allstate identity theft coverage in this plan includes management of the restoration of credit, finances, and identity if it is ever stolen. In such a circumstance, you’ll also be assigned a privacy expert to answer questions. Beyond that, you’ll be able to use the Allstate Digital Footprint to let you see just who has your personal data. Furthermore, Allstate Insurance also offers 24/7 roadside assistance options.
