Renters Insurance With Foremost

Personal Property Coverage

A Renters policy with Foremost insures your Personal Property against common causes of loss like fire or theft. Personal property generally includes items like clothing, electronics and furniture. Make sure you check your policy carefully to see what is covered and what you may need to add special coverage for. Some special items like animals, property used for business purposes, or memorabilia may have special limits or restrictions, so always make sure you read your policy for details.

Additional Living Expenses

If a covered loss makes your residence unfit to live in, Foremost will pay the actual, reasonable and necessary increase in living expenses during that time! Your policy will specify when ALE applies and what the limits are.


Liability coverage is important if a claim or lawsuit is made against you. You may find yourself legally liable for damages due to bodily injury or property damage caused by an accident. Liability coverage with Foremost will help take care of those damages!

Actual Cash Value.

A base policy with Foremost includes coverage for the amount it would cost to repair or replace your property with new property of like kind and quantity, with a deduction for depreciation. Don't want to worry about that? We also offer Replacement Cost, which is the cost to repair or replace property without a deduction for depreciation.

Do I need Renters Insurance?

Although renters insurance is not required by the state, smart renters know that the cost to replace their stuff, including expensive electronics, is much higher than the cost of renters insurance. Be sure your belongings are covered in the case of fire, theft, or vandalism.

Would we insure you?

The short answer: Probably! Whether you rent a traditional, site-built home, manufactured home, an apartment, Foremost offers many options.

Why make the Foremost Choice®?

The Foremost Choice suite of products is built on a simple idea: Specialized Value. Foremost has been offering specialized policies since 1952, and they're crafted with customers in mind, offering stability and value.

Why an agent

Insurance? I knew absolutely nothing about it, at all. I started looking around and found that there are a lot of companies out there and a lot of information to sort through. So much in fact that I became overwhelmed and didn't know which way was up. Unfortunately, I didn't have a trained advisor guiding me and helping me select the right coverages and ended up paying too much for limited coverage. After my first accident, I found an insurance agent that took me step-by-step through what I needed. What a refreshing experience!"
