Shop Local for Renters Insurance, NYC Dwellers

Posted on June 16, 2011

Gotham Brokerage knows the neighborhoods

Navigating renters insurance in NYC takes a local expert. Sure, a call to an 800-number off the web page of a national insurance company will get you coverage, but the staff at Gotham Insurance Brokerage Co., Inc., knows the city. Renters insurance, NYC, the economy and changes in the region’s housing market can be a heady combination. Navigating it to get the right coverage at the best price takes expert help.

And expert in this case means local.

“Buy Local” reaches beyond organic, regionally grown produce and handcrafted jewelry. Using local companies to buy services such as renters insurance in NYC makes lots of sense.

We often don’t think about insurance until it is too late. Most of us don’t realize how valuable our electronics are until they’re stolen, damaged or destroyed. Computers, smart phones, cameras, mp3 players, printers, DVD players, clothes, shoes – it adds up – and quickly.

Working with a local company for renters insurance in NYC, a dense urban environment, is especially important. Is your apartment in Tribeca or Park Slope? Does it have security? A doorman? How close is it to a fire station? The apartment’s type and its zip code can have an impact on what type of policy you need and what your policy costs.

And how little a basic policy costs may surprise you. Gotham’s average annual policies range from $135 – $160 a year for renters insurance.*

Buying local is more than a trend. It has become a way to support local companies, boost local economies and employ local people. It also provides a high level of customer service, which people looking for renters insurance in NYC deserve. Top-notch customer service and deep-rooted knowledge of the city set Gotham Brokerage apart.

Gotham provides renters insurance to NYC residents, including those in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. We also provide renters insurance in Westchester, Long Island and beyond.
