In the 30+ years of experience we have working with homeowners in times of emergency, we have been involved in a variety of different situations. One thing that is universally consistent though is the fact that taking a few minutes of planning long before an emergency situation arises can save you time and energy when you need it most.
No one wants to think a disaster may strike – but if and when it does, taking care of a few details beforehand will make a stressful situation a little bit easier.
Being prepared can include:
- Periodically taking photos or videos of your home and contents
- Itemizing new goods as you renew your homeowner or tenant insurance
- Keeping important documents (or at minimum a photocopy) in a safety deposit box
- Preparing an emergency contact list, e.g. friends, family, doctor, insurer, etc., that you keep offsite
You may want to inquire with your insurance company whether they have an easy-to-use electronic form, or check online for a home inventory software program.
We’ll help you put your property back to right, and you can help us.
