A lot of renters think they don't need or can’t afford insurance. The truth is, it’s probably more affordable than you think and it’s cheaper than replacing your belongings in case of a loss. Things like fire, burglary, theft, storms and water damage happen, and your landlord’s insurance policy won’t protect you. That’s where we come in.
Homesite renters insurance policies include protection for your personal property and liability. Here's what's usually covered in a standard renters policy:
$15,000 - $100,000
$100,000, $300,000, or $500,000
$250 - $2,500
$1,000, $3,000, or $5,000
$2,000 to $2,500
20% of Personal Property Coverage
$1,000 to $1,500
$1,000 to $1,500
If you need a little extra protection, we can help with that too. Here are just a few optional coverages that are available for purchase:

Standard renters insurance policies include protection for your personal property and liability. Our policies are also customizable to fit your unique needs and budget. Here's what’s usually covered in a standard policy:
Personal Possessions (Coverage C) covers damage, destruction or theft of your personal property. Personal property includes items like clothing, appliances and furniture. There are special limits for certain items including (but not limited to) money, jewelry and silverware. If you have items valued above these special limits, such as an engagement ring, consider additional coverage specifically for these items.
Temporary Housing Expenses also known as Loss of Use or Coverage D, this coverage reimburses you for living expenses that exceed your normal living costs if you cannot live in your home due to a covered loss. These additional costs may include hotel stays, additional food preparation costs and other expenses that exceed what you would normally spend if you remained in your home.
Medical Liability Coverage, also known as Medical Payments to Others or Coverage F, pays for medical bills when someone is injured by you personally, or on your property. Reasonable medical expenses are covered, regardless of fault, up to the amount of coverage you select.
Personal Liability or Coverage E pays for loss settlement and legal fees in the event that you or your family members cause bodily injury and/or property damage to others. For example, if you accidentally bump into someone at a grocery store who falls and then sues you, they might sue for their injury, their lost wages and other damages. Your Personal Liability coverage would indemnify you up to your coverage limit if you are found liable.
