Renters: Bundle and Save with Carpartment Insurance

For most drivers, car insurance is a no-brainer. Not only is it required by law in most states, like Massachusetts and Connecticut, it also just makes sense to protect yourself financially and legally in case of a car accident. But what about renters insurance? Many renters incorrectly believe that they don’t need insurance. Maybe you don’t think your belongings are valuable enough to warrant an insurance policy. Maybe you think your landlord’s insurance policy is enough to protect you. In reality, every renter needs their own renters insurance policy — and here at Bearingstar, we want to make this process as easy and affordable as possible!

If you insure your car with Arbella Insurance, you could add on renters insurance coverage for as low as $3 a week. That’s right, you could insure all of your belongings and get liability protection in case of an accident for less than the price of a cup of coffee a week with Carpartment Insurance!

Why You Need Renters Insurance

If you think you don’t need a renters insurance policy, think again. While it’s true that your landlord likely has an insurance policy for your building, this policy only protects the building itself. This means that your personal belongings wouldn’t be covered by their policy if something were to happen in your home. Purchasing a renters insurance policy, however, will ensure that your belongings are protected in case of a loss like a fire or theft.

In addition to providing coverage for your personal belongings, renters insurance also offers liability protection in case of an accident or lawsuit. This could come in handy if someone is ever injured in your apartment or if you ever accidentally injure someone else. Here’s a common scenario: You have some friends over on a Saturday night. People are drinking and the next thing you know, someone trips, hits their head on your coffee table, and loses a tooth. Your renters insurance policy can cover medical costs and if you are taken to court over the accident, the liability coverage of your renters insurance policy could cover legal expenses up to the limit of your policy.

Why Carparment Is A Great Deal

When you sign up for Carpartment through Arbella, you could add a renters insurance policy to your car insurance policy for as little as $3 a week, which is almost like getting two insurance policies for the price of one. But Carpartment Insurance from Arbella isn’t just a great value, it’s also great insurance protection. Being local to New England, Arbella understands the challenges you face both as an MA or CT driver and renter. And when you work with a local agent at Bearingstar Insurance, you’ll get top-notch customer service and the insurance coverage you need, all at a price you’ll like.
