GradGuard's Renters Insurance covered a student's stolen laundry

In college, you may hear about a student’s bike or a laptop being stolen. But what about laundry?

Tom, a student at the University of San Diego, experienced just that. Luckily, he had GradGuard’s Renters Insurance. He shares his experience about filing a claim, and how he was able to get reimbursed for his clothes.

Insurance for the unexpected

Tom was up all night studying for midterms, when he decided to do some laundry down the hall in his dorm. 

“I had three tests the next day, and I decided, what better time to do my laundry?” Tom said. 

He said he put his laundry in the washer and dryer and then went back to studying. But when he went back to check on it a little while later, he discovered most of his clothes were gone. 

Tom had gone to check on his laundry to discover it was gone.

“There was like a trail of it on the floor,” Tom said. “So it seemed like someone had just ran in, opened the door, grabbed it all out of the dryer and had taken it.”

Filing a claim is easy

Tom had purchased GradGuard’s Renters Insurance, which is recommended by his school. He thought his policy may include coverage for his stolen clothes. He was right; about a week after the incident, he filed a claim, and soon after, received a reimbursement.

“It worked out great! Everything went pretty smoothly,” Tom said.

Protecting school essentials- even laundry

Tom is like many of the 700,000 students GradGuard has provided protection to; he purchased a policy at the beginning of the school year just in case the unexpected happened. The University of San Diego is one of GradGuard’s school partners for renters insurance, so Tom learned about the recommended policies that offer a unique student endorsement.
