When you need to file a claim with your home insurance, you will be required to prove what your home looked like and what you had before the peril happened. That is where your home inventory comes in very handy. At Prestige Insurance Group in Miami, FL, we work for you, our customers, and we make sure that if you have to file a claim, it will go smoothly. There is a lot of stress involved in living with household damage, and you don’t want to add more stress about how easily the claim is processed.
You can start your home inventory in any room of your home, but you will need to have a pad, pen, and camera. You will list the items in your room and provide as many pictures as possible of the room from a few different angles. Be sure to look up and down and open any closet or drawers so that everything gets listed. If you have sales slips or receipts, attach them to the correct room.
Be as detailed as possible. Give the color, the size, the brand name, and if it’s electronic, the model and serial number. The more you include, the better. Do the same thing in every room. Go into the basement, go to the attic, and don’t forget the garage. When you are done, it is time to think about where you will store your inventory.
Ideally, you won’t store your inventory in your home. Your inventory could be destroyed along with your home. Make sure that you make a copy at least to store in the cloud so that it can be easily accessed no matter where you are when you need it.
