How to get affordable renters insurance in Oregon

Renters insurance is a great — and cheap! — way to ensure your personal belongings are insured against common incidents. Renters insurance protects personal items in the event of fire or smoke damage, a wind storm, theft, vandalism and a variety of other circumstances.

Unlike auto insurance, renters policies aren’t priced based on state-level legislation. Still, there are often variations in insurance pricing from state to state. Renters rates in US states differ based on the value of — and total number of — renters claims filed in that state, and depend on the value of the belongings being insured.

Getting renters insurance in Oregon is less expensive than the nationwide average. The typical annual renters insurance rate in Oregon is $165, $20 less expensive than the national average.
