Earthquake Insurance in Salt Lake City, Sandy, and Surrounding Utah Communities

Structuring Earthquake Coverage for Salt Lake City Area Residents and Businesses

The loss associated with an earthquake can be moderate or extensive, and the factors that determine this magnitude are traditionally beyond our control. Depending on where you reside, your chances of experiencing an earthquake are heightened. This is especially true with the threat posed in Utah, particularly along the Wasatch Front.

At SentryWest Insurance Services, we partner with our Salt Lake City neighbors to proactively plan earthquake insurance protection. When the Earth is rumbling, take comfort in knowing your home, business, and family assets are thoroughly covered.

Steading Protection Specifically for Earthquakes

Although earthquake insurance is not currently required by law, we heavily promote the return on its investment if a disaster occurs. If you do not invest in earthquake insurance, no coverage is issued, as standard insurance policies do not cover earthquakes or land movement.

Earthquake insurance can be seamlessly packaged within a homeowners and business insurance portfolio. It can also be developed specifically for investment properties. Clients traditionally look to add earthquake insurance as a standalone supplement to their homeowners insurance policy, which can advocate more affordable rates and lower deductibles.


Together, we will conduct a comprehensive review of your assets, developing coverage based on your specific needs. Our agents also take time to educate clients on the options available. Earthquake insurance can be flexible to fit within client budget restrictions, with protection available for:

  • Only a home’s structure, or
  • Packaged to encompass structure, personal property, and additional expenses

Traditionally, additional protection is more affordable than clients originally think.
