Apartment insurance will cover your stuff, but some types of property may need special attention:
1: Jewelry, fur and silverware
A special individual policy, called “scheduling,” will give you what’s called “mysterious disappearance” coverage, which covers you if a diamond falls out of your engagement ring.
2: Musical instruments
Some policies do cover these items, but not necessarily if the theft occurs outside the apartment. You can buy that coverage but you should evaluate based on the item’s value, the cost of the coverage, and your deductible. Note: Professional musicians need separate insurance.
3: Comic book collections, rare baseball cards, vinyl records, and first editions
Apartment insurance has got them covered, but in the case of a rare item, it should be photographed, and if the value if very high, appraised.
And get that vinyl collection itemized.
