What does renters insurance cover?

Many renters are under the false assumption they don’t need renters insurance since they are covered by their landlord’s insurance. Not true. Your landlord probably insures the building you live in but not your personal possessions. At Wilcoxon Insurance Inc. in Sioux Falls, SD, we are committed to raising the bar on providing affordable insurance to our clients. We are a local independent agency, and we provide unparalleled service and options. 

Your possessions

For many renters, their apartment, condo, or home contains most of their possessions. Basically everything they own other than their vehicle. A home fire, hurricane, or tornado can cause total devastation. Not only is your home gone but everything you own is gone. Renters insurance may cover your possessions. This coverage will also cover theft from your home or when you are away from home with one of your possessions. 

You have two choices when purchasing content insurance. You can choose actual cash value or replacement cost. Actual cash value-this is the amount a possession is actually worth today taking depreciation into account. Replacement cost is what it would cost to replace that possession today.

Liability

If someone is hurt while visiting you at your rental or by a member of your family, even your pet, you may find yourself with medical bills and property damage that you must pay. If it leads to legal actions, that can get expensive. Renters insurance provides liability protection. 

Loss of use

If your rental is damaged by a covered peril, it may become uninhabitable. If that happens, you will need a place to stay right away and after that for months. Having this insurance will provide the assistance you need to get an interim rental. 

Contact Wilcoxon Insurance Inc in Sioux Falls, SD with all your renter’s insurance questions and needs.
