Before a Hurricane
Before a hurricane…
- Meet with your agent well before a storm threatens to make sure you have adequate insurance coverage.
- Compile a thorough and detailed inventory of the contents of your home and their value. Include high-quality digital photos and even video for documentation purposes. Depending on the severity of a storm, you may not be able to enter your home, and looting could become an issue. Whether your loss is from a storm or theft, having a list to support your claim helps avoid disputes and ensures the settlement is fair. Lists and smart–phone applications for compiling an inventory are readily available. Ask your agent for assistance.
