Help with bedbug cleanup

Jetty’s Renters Insurance is fully customizable so you can get all the coverage that you need, and none that you don’t. Our basic plans offer contents coverage, which protects your belongings—the contents of your apartment—from a range of common incidents, including damage from a fire or your building’s leaky pipes. From there, you can add extra coverages, called Power-Ups, based on your needs. If you own anything particularly expensive, like an engagement ring, the Valuables Protection Power-Up is for you. If you’re worried about losing your laptop or shattering your phone screen, the Portable Electronics Power-Up will have you covered. We also offer a Bedbugs Coverage Power-Up, so you’re protected if those pesky critters ever invade your home.

Coverage that travels with you.

  

Protection when you travel

  

Additional coverage for lost items

You don’t leave your things at home when you travel, so why should your insurance stay behind? Jetty covers your things even when you take them on the road. So whether your bag is stolen during your commute or on your vacation halfway around the world, we’ll have your back. And if you purchase the Portable Electronics Power-Up or Valuables Protection Power-Up, you’re also covered if you lose your phone during a night out or misplace a piece of jewelry on a trip.

Protection when you can’t go home.

  

Coverage for temporary housing

  

Coverage for increase in living expenses

Sometimes a covered incident renders your home temporarily uninhabitable. If a fire, windstorm, or burst pipe causes enough damage to force you out of your place, Jetty will help put you up in temporary accommodations until you can move back in. We can even chip in for some reasonable additional living expenses, like the cost of eating out while you’re without a kitchen.

What happens in the event of a natural disaster?

What happens in the event of a natural disaster?

What happens if a natural disaster, like a winter storm, hits Pittsburgh? The answer is a bit complicated. Like most insurance providers, Jetty Renters Insurance offers protection from storm damage in some instances—what it comes down to is the difference between damage specifically caused by the storm (e.g., wind, debris, etc.) and damage caused by a flood (e.g., storm surge, water, etc.). We cover the first one, which is typical of almost all renters insurance providers in the country. Let’s use an example: If high winds send a cinder block through your window and take out your television, you’re covered because this is damage from wind and debris. If that same television gets damaged or destroyed by flood waters from a storm surge, you’re not covered. To cover against flood damage, we recommend you supplement your Jetty Renters Insurance with coverage from the U.S. government’s National Flood Insurance Program.
