Creating and storing a home inventory

If a tornado or a fire hits your home, there may not be much left to inventory. If you have done a home inventory, you will have a list of everything you had at your fingertips. At All Counties Insurance Agency & Traffic School in Palm Coast, FL, we pride ourselves on the level of customer service that we offer. 

Making a home inventory is time-consuming, and you may have been putting it off because of that. It is time well spent and will save you time when you file a claim. You can do a video inventory, but the more detailed you have, the better it will be. Bring your phone to take pictures and a pad and pen and write down everything that you find in whatever room you choose to begin in. 

It would be best to write down everything hanging on your walls, closets, drawers, and cupboards. If there is one, write down the brand, the model, and the serial number. If you have receipts and sales slips for items in your inventory, attach them to the list. If you have expensive items, it is essential to have an appraisal. 

Go through all the rooms in your home. You don’t need to create your inventory all in one day; you can do one room at a time. After the rooms are done, head to the attic and basement. Finally, go to the garage and a shed if you have one. 

Storing your inventory is important. It should be in a safe place, preferably away from your home. Always keep a copy of it online for easy access.
