Renters Insurance

Are your personal possessions insured for the correct value?  The average two-bedroom rental residence contains over $20,000 in personal property.

Your landlord has insurance but it only covers the building where you live.  It does not cover your belongings or your liability for accidents.  You may be surprised at the value of all your belongings.  You are probably looking at thousands of dollars. Could you afford to replace your property if it were stolen during a break-in or destroyed during a fire or severe weather?  A renter’s insurance policy will allow you to recover the value of your possessions, such as your valuable electronics and will protect you in the case of a liability lawsuit.

Our knowledgeable insurance professionals at Preferred Insurance will work with you to customize your renter insurance policy to fit your individual needs.

Customer Testimonial

Surely, one can hardly fathom the complexities of a near total loss event.  Amid the chaos and devastation, Erie has emerged to demonstrate keenly, their commitment to their policyholders.  I would be remiss to not proselytize and herald the swift actions of Erie (Jeff Carter) who arrived at my home 40 minutes into this catastrophe and stayed with us until 1:30a to ensure all our questions were answered and immediate needs attended.  Fast forward, 40 days later, Michael Hassan continues to be the effectual Erie steward – demonstrating poise, efficiency, attentiveness and sense of community.
