Protection for Your Personal Belongings and Valuables
If you rent your residence, you may have wondered about protection for your personal property. Your landlord’s insurance covers your home’s structure, but not items that belong to you inside.
Renters insurance was created to offer similar coverage as home insurance. However, instead of the entire building being covered, it only covers your property within your rental unit. That includes any appliances you own, furniture, decorative items, housewares, clothing, electronics, children’s property, sporting goods, and the like.
Like with homeowners policies, renters insurance protects your belongings from both damage and theft. And in most cases, it protects against loss if you are away from home as well.
Full Coverage and Protection for Valuables
Most renters we serve in St. Louis, Missouri, select full value coverage for their policies. That gives them full replacement cost, with no depreciation due to use or wear and tear over time.
Ask us about coverage for valuables that might be excluded from a regular renters insurance policy. We can easily add scheduled coverage for a nominal fee for items such as:
A renters insurance policy also provides liability coverage. If, for example, someone fell at your place and wound up with injuries requiring medical care, you wouldn’t have to pay out of pocket to reimburse them. Your renters insurance would cover the cost up to a certain amount. You can even add a personal umbrella policy to increase your liability coverage up to a million dollars or more, which is a smart move if you’re a dog owner or have a high net worth.
