  1. Your name and date of birth
  2. Your email address
  3. Address/location of your apartment – where the items you need insured will be located
  4. Date you need renters insurance coverage to start
  5. Number of people living in the apartment or home full-time
  6. Name and type of any business, including child care, conducted on the premises
  7. Value of the personal property you wish to insure. A home inventory will aid you in determining how much renters insurance you will need.
