April is upon us and with the full onslaught of Spring, we can expect rain. Only Contents (www.onlycontents.com), which is a nationwide company with offices in Michigan, Georgia, Florida and Illinois, has already seen large amounts of rain throughout the country this year. However, not all rain falls gently to the ground and Spring also means Severe Weather Season and the potential for flooding.
In case of damage or loss through fire or flood, having an accurate valuation of your belongings is essential. Now is a great time to update or complete a home inventory. You’ll give yourself a better picture of what you own and what its worth. With the rising price of precious metals, a good look at your jewelry is certainly warranted and technology changes so quickly that your 6-year-old laptop is now obsolete.
Most insurance companies have home inventory checklists in their offices or on their websites. If you prefer the digital route, apps and software are available. Some apps even allow you to attach photos and serial numbers directly to the inventory so all the information you need in case of fire damage, water loss or theft is in one location. (Be sure to keep a current list offsite.)
Once you’ve completed a home inventory, keeping up with changes is a snap. Just add or remove items to maintain an accurate list. A quick search for home inventory apps and software provides several choices.
