Which form of insurance covers a camera stolen from a car?
"Someone broke into my car while it was parked in my garage (the garage door was left open) and stole my camera. Do I file a claim with my home insurance or my car insurance?
“The camera that was in your car is covered under your home insurance policy. If the actual car had been stolen, then you would file a claim with your auto insurance company.
Homeowners insurance covers items stolen from your car as long as the items were not permanently installed or attached in the car. For example, your home insurance will cover the theft of your camera but not a factory-installed car stereo. “
