We invest a considerable amount of time and energy in building and putting together the perfect home for our families. All that hard work can disappear in a flash in the event of a disaster such as fire, storm, flood or burglary. At American Tri-Star Insurance Services Inc., we hope you never have to deal with the heartache of a claim, but we would like to offer some tips in case you do.
Should a disaster strike, your insurance claims adjuster will ask you to provide a list of the items in your home. Making a home inventory list ahead of time will save you from trying to remember all of your possessions and eliminate the possibility of forgetting anything valuable.
- Make a detailed list of all items, include the dates you purchased them, and any serial numbers.
- Be sure to check in the garage, drawers and closets for valuables you may have forgotten about.
- Take pictures of all rooms from different angles. This will help you remember what is there and provide proof of having the items.
- Update your list every year!
At American Tri-Star Insurance Services Inc., we can look at your list to help you determine if you need a special insurance policy for some of your most valuable possessions. We have offices in San Diego, Chula Vista, National City and Vista California, stop by and see us today!
