How to Prepare Your Clients in 4 Easy Steps

​Did you know that most Californians live within 30 miles of an active fault? As a savvy agent, your clients rely on you for preparedness recommendations regarding their finances, and more! Teach them how to prepare, survive, and recover from an earthquake disaster.

Here are 4 great ways to prepare your clients:

1. Give them the steps to earthquake safety

The process of earthquake safety may seem easy enough, but it's important to know the steps and have them documented for your clients. Make sure to share the Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety poster with your clients. They can either download it directly or you can order laminated posters for FREE directly from your MVP agent store.

2. Give them their Earthquake Preparedness Starter Kit

As an MVP participant, you get the awesome perk of sending all of your new CEA policyholders an Earthquake Preparedness Starter Kit to help them on the path of safety and preparedness.​

3. Get your California clients to shake it out

Encourage your policyholders and their families to participate in the Great California ShakeOut. This quick drill will show them how to get through an earthquake. Participating is a great way for your clients to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from earthquakes– wherever they live, work, or travel. ​

4. Give them peace of mind

Recovering from an earthquake can be an expensive and stressful experience. There are some great reasons why purchasing earthquake insurance will be beneficial for your clients. Tell them:

Having earthquake insurance will make it easier for you to recover emotionally, because:

  • You can rest easy knowing you and your family have already financially planned and prepared for this type of life-altering event.
  • ​You won't have to figure out how to afford to live elsewhere while repairs are made, and
  • You won't have to worry about where to get the money to pay for earthquake damages,
  • With recent policy enhancements this year and an average 10% statewide rate reduction, you can find a policy that meets your coverage needs and budget.
  • If you do have to file a claim for earthquake damage, contact your insurance company, and:
    • Take pictures
    • Keep all your receipts
    • Document all your conversations​
