Friends Don’t Let Friends Go Without Renter’s Insurance

Posted on February 21, 2012

Renter’s insurance is cheap, and can be a life-saver

Brooklyn apartments.

When life spins out of control, we like being able to help you put it back together.

Which is why we can’t stress enough just how important it is to have property insurance. In New York, where most people are renters, insurance sometimes becomes an afterthought. There are a lot of unprotected people. If you’re reading this blog, you’re savvy about the need for insurance, but if you ask your friends, you might be surprised by how many of them are making a bet that bad things won’t happen.

It’s a bad bet.

Accidents and crime may be rare, but when they happen, they can be devastating. Why risk losing everything when renter’s insurance policies can cost as little as $10 or $20 a month?

Gotham Brokerage has been a family-owned business for 50 years, and we have deep relationships with insurers in New York. We know which questions to ask to make sure you have full coverage, as well as which questions to ask to save you money.

Our relationship doesn’t end once you have your policy. If something happens and you need to file a claim, we’ll be there to help.

Here are some testimonials that our customers have written on Yelp:

“Very happy customer. We’ve worked with Jeff Schneider at Gotham for several years, and he is unbelievably responsive to any/all requests. The service level is really remarkable. We had a flooded apartment this summer, and both Gotham and the underwriter really came through.” — Anthony S., Brooklyn

“I was referred to Gotham by a friend when I rented my first apartment in NYC after I graduated from college. I’ve moved twice since and now I’m married in living in a condo. Gotham has stayed with me. I was robbed once, and thankfully, my jewelry was insured so the sting was much less awful. Gotham is always helpful and they’ve been really good at helping me to adjust my policy and also add new ones as my needs have changed and grown.” — Margo K., New York City

As you might expect from reading those reviews, we have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. After 50 years, we’ve helped thousands of people. Ask around. And while you’re at it, ask your friends if they’ve got coverage. You might be doing them a huge favor.
