Answer these important questions BEFORE getting any quotes
- Doesn't the landlord's insurance cover my stuff? (hint... NO)
- How much coverage should I have?
- What Limits are right for me? $30,000, $55,000
- What deductibles should I have? $100, $250, $500?
- What about insurance for my jewelry?
- Is my stuff in storage covered?
- What's MEDICAL PAYMENTS?
- Why woud I need Liability Coverage as a Renter?
Getting the most for your insurance dollar starts with getting the best quote you can. There's few things in life more (seemingly) complicated than shopping for coverage like Renters Insurance.
Let me offer you a comprehensive view of all of these questions. Take a look at my blog post at THE SAN DIEGO INSURANCE BLOG :
There you'll find all the answers to these questions and more.
Once you've decided how to best configure your coverage, then make a few calls. Ask some friends who their insurance company is and how do they like it. Ask if they've had any claim experience there. Be sure that when you call, get the same coverages for each quote. If they want to quote you some different limits and deductibles, that's great, but make sure you have the one configuration that you started with. That way it makes it easy for you to compare prices and companies.
Remember it's NOT just about the price. There's convenience of use and claim service to consider. Do you want a local office or are you happy with a 1-800 number in some far off state? Lots of questions to answer. Just be organized and think through what you want. WRITE IT DOWN and keep track of the answers and prices you get.
Alsoo keep in mind, the ease and convenience which gets you the quote is probably an indicator of how other things like car changes and claims might go in the future.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.... GOOD LUCK!
It's a Good Life !
