Why you should purchase renters insurance from Mercury

A Mercury renters insurance policy has the following benefits:

  • Affordable and valuable coverage.
  • Covers living expenses if your rental unit or home becomes uninhabitable due to a covered loss.
  • Personal property is covered from theft or damage while in your vehicle or with you on vacation.
  • If someone is hurt on the property you rent, your policy will provide liability coverage up to the limits you have selected.
  • Provides important protection not covered by your landlord’s building insurance policy.
  • As the cost to rent continues to rise, without coverage you may have less money in savings to replace lost, stolen or damaged possessions.

Additional renters insurance purchase advice

  • Take stock of personal property and determine how much it would cost to replace.
  • Create a home inventory of all belongings that includes an itemized list, pictures and receipts, as this will be useful in the event a claim needs to be filed.
  • When determining a deductible, know that a higher deductible will result in a lower insurance premium, but a lower deductible might be a more manageable out-of-pocket expense if you need to make a claim.
  • When moving from one place to another, keep your Mercury renters insurance policy current to protect personal property during the move.
  • Make sure you review policy details with a Mercury agent, as floods and earthquakes will require a separate policy. These experts will let you know if you have the right amount of coverage1.
  • Bundle your renters insurance with an auto insurance policy from Mercury - you’ll get a discount when buying these policies together.
  • Renters insurance policies will cover family members living in the same place, but not roommates. Roommates need to take out their own policy.
