Queens Renters Insurance FAQs

These are some of the commonly asked questions concerning renters insurance in Queens that might help you make this important decision.

Why is Renters Insurance Necessary?
Queens renters need insurance for many reasons. It’s not just about the possessions inside your rental unit, but about protection from liability lawsuits, legal fees, and liability judgments against you.
What does Renters Insurance Cover?
Renters insurance provides coverage in three key areas: Personal property Personal liability Living expenses (this is in the event that your rental unit needs to be renovated or rebuilt after a covered incident and you need to make alternate living arrangements).

What Doesn’t Renter’s Insurance in Queen’s Cover?

Like homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance excluded certain things from coverage. This will vary, to some degree, from one company to the next, but will almost always exclude damage from floods and earthquakes. Your policy may also exclude dog bites – or bites from certain dog breeds. You may need to purchase a separate animal liability coverage for that and for any damage your pet may do to the apartment that goes beyond your pet security deposit.

Renters insurance in Queens also has some limitations. For instance, if you have an extensive collection of furs or expensive jewelry, your insurance limit of about $1,000 per type of item may not be enough to cover your loss in a theft, fire, or other covered loss. The same holds true for things like:

  • Electronics
  • Fine Art
  • Antiques
  • Sporting Equipment
  • Collectibles
  • Appliances
  • Musical Instruments
  • Firearms and Collectible Weaponry

You get the picture. If you have valuable items, it’s a good idea to consider valuable items insurance to cover each item type you own.

Tips and More for Buying Renters Insurance in Queens NY

These tips will save you a great deal of time, money, and aggravation when it comes to buying insurance. Use them well.

  • Bundle your renter’s insurance policy with your auto insurance. Insurance companies love loyal customers and reward you handsomely for carrying multiple policies through them.
  • Know what your policy does and does not cover. The benefit of working with an independent agent is that you get to develop a personal relationship with your agent. This means you can ask the burning questions about coverage and make sure that the things that are most important to you (not to mention most expensive to replace) are acceptably covered as far as you’re concerned.
  • Understand your total coverage. Don’t hope you’ve got the all the coverage you need. Ask specific questions and get straight answers from an agent you feel you can trust.
  • Consider a higher deductible if you need lower premiums. Understand, though, that if disaster strikes, the burden on you will be even larger. If monthly costs are an issue, this will help keep them down, it can be a high price to pay though.
