Are you just moving into your first apartment? Or maybe you’ve had a major life change that has caused a change in your finances or resulted in most of your stuff being somewhere else. Whatever the reason, if you’re looking to furnish a new apartment on the cheap in Mesa, you’ve come to the right place.
Renters Insurance In Mesa
First things first, make sure you get Mesa, AZ Renters Insurance. It definitely qualifies as “on the cheap,” since it starts at about fifteen bucks a month. It protects the things you’re buying to furnish your new apartment, and there’s an interesting benefit to having renters insurance in Arizona: Most policies come with replacement cost coverage.
Replacement cost coverage means that if there’s a loss, you get the cost to replace the item that was lost with an item of like kind and quality, new. Couch from Goodwill? You’ll generally be able to replace it with something new. That’s subject to the total policy limit for personal property, of course, and you should read the terms of the policy. The protection is there to make sure you’re in the same financial position you were in before the loss, because you might not be able to find another ten dollar couch.
Furnished Apartments In Mesa
You can get a furnished apartment in Mesa for as little as $500 a month. That’s an interesting way to get stuff for your apartment in an affordable way, but there’s one problem – the stuff isn’t yours, but if it’s damaged you’re still responsible for it. Renters insurance is one way to protect against that, but it still doesn’t make the stuff in the apartment yours. Some people are fine with that, and some are not. If you’re in the latter group, read on!
Just to be clear, we’re talking about the people who rent furniture to short-term corporate rentals – Cort Furniture comes to mind – not the rental places that advertise on TV. You’ll lose a ton of money at Rent-A-Center, but furniture rental companies often have great deals. You’ll want to be careful and make sure that you have a decent price, and that you’ll own it at the end, of course. This isn’t for everyone, but it makes sense for many people especially if you’ve just moved across the country.
Used Furniture In Mesa, AZ
There are often great deals to be had on used furniture. Many times, it can be found very gently used, and you’ll pay a fraction of what it cost new.
