Are you the type of person whose apartment is filled with crafty things? You know, a creator, a maker, someone with a passion for ideas, art, music, carpentry, building butter-spreading robots — or other things that didn’t exist before you thought them up? Well, if you are, you’ve probably invested plenty in cameras or DJ tables or 3D printers or power tools or musical instruments or other things you need to create your stuff. It’s a huge part of your life. And there are a lot of creative types these days. So we opened up our craft kit and got down to the business of creating a coverage option to help creative people free their mind to focus on their passions.

Coverage for creatives and makers, created by us.

If you know Toggle®, you know that we’re all about coloring outside the lines when it comes to creating apartment insurance coverage options that work for the modern world. We brainstorm! We mind map! We’re the creative makers of the insurance world! We do things to help you protect what you care about no matter how crazy it seems to less progressive renters insurance companies. (Don’t all great ideas seem a little crazy at first?) So, we’re excited to offer Creative + Maker coverage. How excited? Hang-it-on-the-fridge excited. Just put the finishing touches on the Sistine Chapel excited. Unlocked the genetic sequence of velociraptors and opened a theme park excited. Okay, that last one might be a stretch. But if you’re a creative or maker or both, you know the feeling when things come out better than you ever imagined.

Do creative tools have legs: an investigation.

So a lot of stuff on that list has a nasty habit of walking away the second we turn our backs. We’ve all been there. A victim of a case of supremely sticky fingers. Either way, replacing some of the pricier investments in your creative side is something you don’t want to even think about. So, let’s help put your mind at ease. Creative + Maker coverage can help cover your creative stuff in the event of accidental damage AND in the event of *extremely spooky voice* mysterious disappearances. So in the event creative tools DO have legs, considering this coverage is a good idea.
