Shopping for personal property insurance surged during the past year, a trend that has continued into 2021, according to TransUnion, which noted that for the week of March 28, 2021, property insurance shopping increased 24.6% compared with the year prior.

Although lockdown measures that went into place during March 2020 influenced the results some, TransUnion noted the jump in March was not the only, or largest, year-on-year gain seen during 2021. During the week of January 3, 2021, the market saw a 26% increase.
