More than 50% of VA renters are uninsured, causing billions in unrecoverable economic losses to the state each year.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) March 28, 2016
Effective Coverage, the nation's fastest growing provider of renters insurance, today launched a new mobile renters insurance platform designed to offer fast, convenient access to insurance products and services that renters need through top-rated insurance carriers in Virginia. From within the mobile platform, renters can instantly find, quote, and buy insurance anytime, whether they're standing in the leasing office trying to move in or suddenly realize that they need the coverage. The platform offers instant access to expert advice from agents from directly within the quote, as well.
There are nearly one million renters in Virginia, and over half of them lack the protection of Virginia renters insurance according to a study conducted by Effective Coverage and ORC International. Primary reasons for the statistically significant number of renters who choose to go without coverage include the traditional difficulty in accessing insurance products and services at a convenient time and place, along with a number of widely held misconceptions about the coverage. Many renters believe that renters insurance in VA is difficult, time-consuming, or hard to find. Other common misconceptions include believing that a landlord's policy will offer coverage or that the renter owns nothing worth insuring. None of those myths are true, of course, and Effective Coverage has previously addressed common myths about renters insurance. Through the new platform, Virgina residents can now purchase a renters insurance policy in just sixty seconds and get the affordable and broad coverage they deserve.
"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 all 95 counties of Virginia, including Richmond, Alexandria, Hampton, Roanoke, Charlottesville, 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."
