Will auto insurance cover valuables stolen along with my car?
My car was recently stolen and I had a lot of valuables inside: a laptop, wireless headphones, some golf equipment, and my son's Nintendo Switch. Will my full-coverage insurance compensate me for these losses?
Sorry to hear about your losses. Unfortunately, car insurance will not compensate you for any personal belongings that are stolen, lost, or damaged in your vehicle. Those items would need to be covered under a homeowners or renters policy.
