Over half of the 4 million renters in Texas are uninsured
Albany, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2016
Effective Coverage, the fastest growing national provider of renters insurance, today introduced a mobile renters insurance platform to provide convenient access to top-rated insurance carriers in Texas. With the new platform, renters can find, quote, and buy insurance at the moment they sign their leases.
There are more than 4 million renters in Texas, and a study conducted by Effective Coverage and ORC International indicates that more than half of them do not have renters insurance. This pervasive lack of coverage is often due to common misconceptions, including the ideas that renters insurance is too expensive, that buying it is complicated or requires significant time, that a landlord has insurance which covers the tenant, and that it's unnecessary unless a tenant's property has excessive value.
"I've experienced the financial and personal pain of fire damage while uninsured. MY mission with Effective Coverage is to prevent that horrible situation from happening to anyone ever again," said Eric Narcisco, founder and CEO of Effective Coverage. "Our mobile renters insurance site, backed by top-rated insurance carriers, goes a long way to helping people see how easy and inexpensive it is to get the coverage they need to protect their families and livelihoods.
The Effective Coverage mobile renters insurance site currently serves over 400 cities in Texas, including Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Irving, Mesquite, and Laredo.
Through the new mobile platform, Effective Coverage customers can learn about renters insurance, determine the best coverage options, and then purchase policies in just minutes. If needed, they can also directly contact a licensed Effective Coverage insurance agent through the platform to help guide them to the right coverage at the best available price.
"Too many people are at risk today because they believe that renters insurance is complicated, time-consuming, expensive, or duplicative of their landlord's coverage, but there's just no good reason not to protect your family," added Narcisco. "By making the process so fast and easy, we give people peace of mind that they can quickly restore their lives after catastrophes such as fires, explosions, vandalism, or thefts.
