Over half of the one million renters in New Jersey are uninsured
Albany, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Effective Coverage, the leading national provider of renters insurance, today introduced a new mobile platform designed to offer easy access to top-rated insurance carriers in New Jersey. From within the new platform, renters can instantly find, quote, and buy insurance at the moment they sign their leases. The platform offers instant access to expert advice from agents, as well.
There are more than one million renters in New Jersey, and a study conducted by Effective Coverage and ORC Macro found that over half of them lack renters insurance. This is partially due to the traditional difficulty in accessing insurance products and services online, but also due to common misconceptions. Many people believe that renters insurance in New Jersey is too expensive, that it's complicated, difficult, or time-consuming to purchase renters insurance, that their landlord's insurance covers them, or that renters insurance in NJ isn't needed unless they have particularly valuable possessions. Effective Coverage has addressed these common renters insurance misconceptions as well. Through the new platform, policies are affordable and can be purchased in under one minute.
"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 500 municipalities in New Jersey, from Newark and Hoboken to Woolwich Township, Camden, and across the state.
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 theft."
