We’re proud to be located in the Rochester, New York area. We understand the diversity in weather we will face and the threat it can pose to our homes. Our temperature can range from -22 degrees to 102 degrees. That can put extreme stress on our homes. Your home insurance policy should cover everything from snow and ice damage to fire damage. The list of what we offer looks like this: | Theft | Fire and smoke damage | Wind and hail | Falling objects (trees, powerlines, etc.) | Frozen plumbing | Water damage (plumbing, water heaters, appliances, heating & cooling systems) There are additional options like flood coverage that can be added. In New York, the home coverage plan addresses the above options and usually contains several added coverages: Personal property coverage Homes are more than just a structure. It’s the stuff inside that makes a building a home. Whether we are talking about grandma's china or junior’s first trophy, we’ll take the steps to make sure you’re covered. Other structure coverage This covers any additional structures on your property, including buildings like garages, sheds, and barns.

Condo policies offer a different type of insurance that fits somewhere between renters and homeowners. Much of what is covered is a balance between your insurance policy and the Condo Association Coverage. A general policy will cover: | Personal liability coverage | Guest medical coverage | Building property protection | Personal property coverage All four of these tend to cover things inside your condo. Even the building property protection covers items within the existing walls. This could mean built-in bookshelves, cabinets, or other items that are affixed to the walls without being part of the walls. Because there is always an overlap between what you are required to cover and what the condo association will cover with their insurance policy, there are several options. Let’s sit down and run through your condo association’s master policy to help you determine what exactly you need and what might be in your best interest to have covered in your policy. Here is a list of common condo insurance options and what they help with: Loss assessment coverage This helps cover common area damage if there is a stipulation in your master policy that you are required to cover a percentage of the cost. Flood insurance Flood insurance may be required by your mortgage company or it may be optional. Usually, this comes attached to a disclosure during the purchase if your property is in a known flood zone. Umbrella insurance This covers anything above and beyond what might be covered by your condo’s policy. Scheduled personal property This is used to cover any items of high value. Whether that is jewelry, expensive equipment, or artwork, this type of coverage is specifically aimed at protecting your important items.
At Jessica Guay Insurance, we aim to simplify life. We know that roughly 35% of people rent their homes. If that’s you, we highly recommend considering rental insurance for your peace of mind. It is good to keep in mind a landlord is responsible to maintain a minimum level of insurance that covers the structure of the rented space. However, this leaves it to you as the renter to ensure your belongings are covered. The most common types of rental insurance are: | Personal property coverage | Reimbursed living expenses | Liability protection | Guest medical coverage This policy is adaptable to fit your needs, and as always, we’re happy to help you decide.
There’s nothing like the feeling of breaking your bike out on that first warm day of spring. However, worrying about your insurance shouldn’t hold you back from the freedom of the open road. The list of what we offer for motorcycle insurance is extensive. Whether you’re a seasonal rider or a daily rider, we have the perfect policy to fit your needs. While every policy will contain the legal requirements for New York, we have a wide variety of options to build on the base policy. This flexibility allows us to create a unique motorcycle policy for each client. On top of our base policy we offer: | Optional/added equipment coverage - if you have upgraded your bike or like to do after- market work yourself, this makes sure you’re covered. | Towing and labor - some bikes, like Harley Davidsons, come with this automatically, but you might like the assurance of help if you ever break down. | Rental reimbursement - covers a rental bike while yours is in the shop after filing a claim. | Bodily injury liability coverage - this is required in New York state and covers other drivers if you are at fault in an accident. | Property damage liability coverage - this covers other vehicles and property. | Medical payments - protects you in case of medical bills. | Collision coverage - protects your bike. | Comprehensive coverage - covers your bike from non-auto accidents, like a falling tree limb, floods, or fire in your garage. | Uninsured or underinsured motorist bodily injury - protects you if you are not at fault in an accident with an uninsured driver. This will cover the medical bills of you and your passenger. | Motorcycle and off-road vehicle transport trailer damage - if you are moving your bike on a trailer and get into an accident, this protects your bike. | Lease/loan gap - this coverage pays off the remaining loan amount if your bike is stolen or totaled before you have fully paid it off. With this wide variety of options at your fingertips, Jessica Guay Insurance has the ability to build you the perfect motorcycle policy and keep you protected.
Small businesses are the heart and soul of our community. We want to do everything in our power to make sure your livelihood is protected with custom-built policies to fit the needs of your business. Our business policies include: | Business owners policy | Property coverage | Liability coverage | Business interruption coverage | Equipment breakdown coverage With these necessities covered, we can modify your policy to ensure your business is in the best position to keep moving forward. Every policy is unique. For instance, a cafe with fifteen tables will require different liability coverage than a courier service with four riders. Based on the need to protect a constant rotation of clientele gives a different scenario than providing coverage for the four riders out in the street. At the end of the day, having the right coverage offers your business the protection it needs and gives you the peace of mind you deserve.
Life insurance is something nobody likes to think about. But we also know that planning for the future is what insurance is all about. Here at Jessica Guay Insurance, we aim to walk that fine line and make sure you have what you need to get through the unpleasant times. We want to do everything we can to sensitively offer you options for life insurance. Our customers are just like family, and we’ll help make sure your loved ones are well taken care of. At Jessica Guay Insurance, we aim to protect you and your family. There are two main types of life insurance, term life insurance, and permanent life insurance. While they are aimed at providing for your family should you pass, they offer different benefits while you are alive. Term Life Insurance Term life insurance has a policy that is in effect for a set period of time. Whether that period is one year or thirty, it will end. If you pass before the policy expires, your beneficiaries will receive a payout. People tend to have policies like this earlier in life to protect against an accident or unforeseen illness. Because of the time limit, the monthly payments are lower in cost. Some term life insurance policies can be renewed and others can convert to permanent life insurance policies at a specified age. These options will be laid out in your policy so you know what your options are. Permanent Life Insurance This type of policy does not expire and guarantees a payout for your family. While you are living and making payments, your cash value total increases. You have the option to take money out of this account while you are alive if you choose. This cash value grows throughout the whole time you are paying into your life insurance policy. It can be used for anything you want. However, when you die, any money accrued here will be added to the payout. There are a few variations on permanent life insurance: | Whole life insurance | Universal life insurance | Variable universal life insurance | Indexed universal life insurance Each of these offers slightly different avenues to the same end, providing a cash payout to your loved ones in the event of your death. Choosing Wisely At the end of the day, we will help you decide which option is best for you. The cost of each type of policy is variable, based on factors such as your current age. Life insurance is a sensitive topic, and it’s not an easy one to talk about. You can count on us at Jessica Guay Insurance to provide you with everything you need to make an informed decision for yourself and your family.
ATV & Snowmobile
Here in the North Country, we understand that there are other modes of transportation than cars and motorcycles. Whether that is getting to school on a snowmobile during the winter or hunting with the help of an ATV during hunting season, we need ways to get around the countryside. At Jessica Guay Insurance, we’ve got you covered, no matter what you’re driving. We cover: | UTV’s | Golf carts | Dune buggies | Trail bikes | Go-karts | Segways For this wide variety of off-road transports, we have the usual policy options.

Additionally, we offer: | Bodily injury liability | Property damage liability | Collision coverage | Comprehensive coverage | Optional/added equipment coverage Our base policies cover all the potential accidents that could damage your ATV or snowmobile even when you are not actively using them. Fire, theft, vandalism, and even falling objects are no match for our coverage.
Boat & RV
While we have the pleasure of Lake Ontario just to our north, being safe on the waters is a must. However, as safe as we are, accidents do happen. That’s why we offer boat insurance here at Jessica Guay Insurance. You might think the insurance is just meant to cover you while you are enjoying the wind and sun out on the lake, but rest assured we cover you even when you are on land. Our insurance policies offer coverage even while your boat is in storage or being transported from your garage to the lake. When you build your boat policy you have multiple options: | Watercraft medical payment coverage - helps pay for medical or funeral costs if someone is hurt on your boat. | Watercraft liability coverage - offers help paying for damages, medical costs, funeral costs, and loss of income for you and the passengers on your boat. | Property coverage - pays for damages to your boat in case of collision, even if your boat is docked. | Repair cost endorsement coverage - helps cover repairs to your boat. | Emergency services coverage - helps cover the cost in the event of a tow or on-site repairs. | Uninsured watercraft coverage - covers repairs or medical bills in case of a collision with an uninsured boat. | Agreed value option - in case of full loss of your boat, you will be reimbursed for the value at the beginning of the policy. | Personal effects coverage - covers personal effects should they be damaged, lost, or stolen. | Additional boat equipment coverage - covers equipment not attached to the boat in case of loss or damage. | Boat trailer coverage - offers coverage for your trailer in case of accident or damage. With boating being a little different in regard to state requirements in New York, all of the above coverages are optional. We recommend protecting your property, but you are allowed to build your policy from scratch. Likewise, we have RV campgrounds throughout the Finger Lakes and up along the lake shore. We have a great spread of policy options for RVs: | Bodily injury liability | Property damage liability | Collision coverage | Comprehensive coverage | Personal effects coverage | Medical payment coverage | Personal injury protection coverage | Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage | Towing and labor costs coverage | Total loss replacement | Vacation liability | Emergency expense | Full timer’s liability coverage | Pet coverage | Tow bar coverage Since an RV is both home and auto in one, what we offer is the best of both coverages.
