While You’re at It – Clean Up Your Inventory!
We’re not talking about big businesses’ inventory here. Your home inventory is essential for your homeowners policy to protect your belongings. Be sure to update your inventory regularly to cover your expensive and valuable items!
- Add any new and recently purchased items to your home inventory to obtain coverage. If a certain item exceeds your homeowners policy, be sure to obtain a rider or additional insurance.
- Get old jewelry appraised to ensure that they are valued correctly in your policy.
- Remove any items that you’re donating, have sold, or given away from your coverage.
