What Graduation has to do with Florida Renters Insurance


        This time of year, there are many high school graduates moving out on their own for the first time. High school is finally over and graduation has come and gone. Some will go off to college and some will get jobs and move into an apartment or rent a house. If your new graduate is out to start a new life, it may be smart to purchase renters insurance, especially if they are living off of a college campus.

        When you move into your own place, you bring everything that is valuable to you such as: your laptop, iPod, clothing, furniture, college textbooks, and other electronics. If an unexpected event occurs, such as a storm or if someone breaks in, you could lose thousands of dollars worth of belongings. Without a special policy such as a renter’s policy, those belongings will not be covered. The landlord most likely has insurance, but will only cover the building and will not include your personal belongings. However, if you purchase renters insurance, you can purchase the proper coverage to make sure all of your belongings are fully insured.
