Fires are one of the the most devasting losses that can happen to you if you live in an apartment, but broken pipes, burglary and other situations can also cost you money and cause stress. Unless you have renters' insurance, your belongings aren't covered and neither is your personal liability. What if you caused a fire by accident that damaged other people's property. You could be held liabile and wouldn't have any insurance to help protect you.
Getting covered is fast, easy, and affordable
For approximately $200 annually, you can have insurance that guarantees you'll have money to replace everything you own and pay for extra housing expenses if needed. But if you drive a car, it probably won't even cost you that much because you may save up to 10% on your car insurance, which can offset some of the cost of getting covered.
