My wife and I live in Cambridge, MA, and we need renter's insurance. It's been put off for far too long, mostly because figuring out the logistics is daunting. I don't just want to pick the local guys only to find out that when we need them, they're a pain in the ass to deal with.
Confounding the issue is that I have a relatively large collection of Magic: the Gathering cards that I want to make sure are insured in the case of fire, theft, or whatever. An insurance agent who understood the value of collectibles would be a bonus.
Other than that, it seems like it should be easy. No kids, no pets, just lots of electronics, kitchenware, books, and games. So, who should we call? Any other tips for dealing with renter's insurance?
