Your home is your castle and if anything were to happen to that castle, you would want to replace all the personal items you have been accumulating for years. An inventory is the best way for you to remember all the things you actually own. If you live in or near Phoenix, AZ Bailey Insurance LTD can help you to understand exactly how important a good inventory is to your peace of mind.
To create a home inventory you need to go through your house one room at a time and write down everything in that room. If you have electronics be sure to note the exact model and serial number. Write as detailed a description as you possibly can and if you have the sales slip for any items put them together with the inventory. For any of your expensive jewelry, it is imperative that you have an appraisal.
It can be really helpful if you photograph or videotape each of your rooms and be sure to highlight your most expensive items. Don’t forget things that may be stored in the attic, basement or closets. Imagine having to replace all your Christmas ornaments. Make a listing of all your books and don’t forget the cookbooks.
Once you have gotten all the information together it needs to be stored in a safe place. If you have a heat and water-resistant box that is a good option or even better is a safety deposit box where it can be easily accessed if the unthinkable happens.
Creating your home inventory is a big job, it can take quite a while to do it well. If you live in or near Phoenix, AZ, Bailey Insurance LTD is there to help you protect your home. Stop by our office or give us a call for a no-obligation quote.
