Poll Shows Renter's Insurance Misconceptions

Wash -  It could be fire, theft or vandalism; all of your most precious belongings destroyed or stolen.

A new poll shows that most Washington renters do not have renter's insurance.

The statewide poll done by PEMCO Insurance shows that people have serious misconceptions about renter's insurance.

Some of the people polled did not have renter's insurance because they thought their landlord's policy would cover their belongings and that's usually not the case.

Many people don't know that items stolen from you car can also be covered by renter's insurance.

A policy can cost you less than ten dollars a month, although the poll shows some people think it's too expensive.
