A devastating house fire is something no one wants to think about, but a fire can take your home and all the memories inside. Taking a home inventory is an excellent way to expedite the claim process. Preparing a list of what you own before something happens is much easier than writing one after the claim happens. Most people are already going through a difficult experience and just want to get their lives back and be whole again.
Here are some tips for making your home inventory:
Make your inventory as complete and detailed as possible
Take pictures and videos of each room in your home, including storage buildings, attic, and the garage
Pictures should also include insides of closets, cabinets, and drawers
Keep your inventory in a safe location and also have a back-up somewhere off the premise.
It is common for us to think that nothing devastating will ever happen to us and bad things only happen to other people. With all the technology we have access to today, there is no reason not to organize videos, photos, or even spread sheets that are easily accessible for these type of bad situations. We want the claim process to go as smoothly as possible for you and everyone else involved. We want to make sure you are protected and having a home inventory is one way we can do that. If something happens or you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call us!
