Why Every Oil Tank Owner Needs Insurance

Did you know that many Cape Cod homeowner insurance policies don’t cover your oil tank? This could be a bit alarming considering how much you depend on your oil tank for warmth and comfort throughout the cold season. Taking care of your tank should be a priority for every homeowner and with regular inspections. However, even though you do all you can to maintain your tank, there is always risk of a hazard like a leak. After all, corrosion starts from the inside out and is often unnoticed until it’s too late.

So, you get insurance to protect your car, your home—why not your tank as well? You can insure your tank to make sure that your wallet and your tank are covered in case any hazards happen to come along. An oil tank insurance policy will provide coverage in case your tank ruptures or leaks, and considering that there are various ways a tank can become damaged, an insurance policy will typically cover it regardless of the cause.
