Narcity Readers Reveal What Their Most Prized Possessions Are & Why Insurance Is Worth It

There's no sugarcoating it: adulting is hard. With mounting responsibilities, peace of mind can be a rare thing to come by these days. Certain worries exist that not even a good ol' self-care evening can quell.

Getting quality sleep goes a long way, and it's a little easier to get some rest when you have insurance. Narcity Canada readers happen to agree, but 28% of 1,456 respondents said they don't have insurance at all, which could cause some big headaches in the long run.

Even if you're renting, having insurance can save you some serious cash down the road. Whether you're a tenant or a homeowner, you can feel at ease knowing you'll be covered in case of theft, extreme weather or fire.

If you don't have proper coverage or are unsure if you have the right kind, belairdirect has lots of options and an app to help simplify the whole process. Not only do these plans protect your digs, but they also cover the stuff inside too — from your laptop to your favourite watch.

To shed some light on why insurance is worth it, Narcity readers revealed their most prized possessions.

Of course, many people got sentimental while naming photos, memories and stuffed animals as the first things they'd save from a house fire. While insurance can't replace the emotional value of your fave Squishmallows, having support from an insurer can help ease that loss.

Topping the list of answers were: passports and wallets. Thankfully, most essential documents are replaceable with a trip to the bank or government agency.

Other folks identified collectables to be their greatest treasure. Whether watches, vintage wines or Pokémon cards are your thing, they can increase in value over the years.

While collections are subject to limitations, it's always good to protect your stuff against unexpected accidents — like your upstairs neighbour leaving their bathtub running.

Another popular answer was electronics, like phones, laptops and hard drives. These devices can be pricey to replace, but as long as your important files are backed up, you won't be missing your gadgets for long if you're insured.

Pro-tip for the Narcity readers who said their vehicle is their most cherished possession: you can save big when you bundle your home and car insurance.

Plus, with the belairdirect app, you can have immediate access to crash assistance. The app also lets you manage your policies and claims, saves a digital copy of proof of your insurance and stores your license plate number (convenient for parking).

So, did your number one item make the list? Whether it did or if something else came to mind, you can protect the stuff that matters to you (and heave a sigh of relief).

When it comes to insurance, there's no one-size-fits-all. belairdirect has affordable policies for every type of lifestyle, and they're easy to set up. Whether renting your first place as a student, owning a condo with your S/O or having just moved into a new bachelor pad, you can find a plan that suits you.
