Important Hurricane Season Tips for Protecting Your Belongings

Even though many homeowners take the necessary steps to protect their homes during hurricane season (think insurance, tree-trimming, adding storm shutters), it's nearly impossible to say that there will never be a storm or disaster that will affect your home. One of the top questions our clients have is if they have enough insurance to protect their belongings. The second question that immediately follows that is 'how will my insurance company know what my stuff is worth?'

There's no easy answer to that question, however insurance agents will often tell you that the amount of compensation you'd receive from a claim if everything in your home was destroyed depends on the age and condition of those items. One of the best ways to get the fairest amount of compensation is to photograph and log the items you own inside your home. Unfortunately, people do this, backup the photos on their computer, and then the computer is damaged in a flood, hurricane, fire, etc. 

As easy solution to this problem is using a service like knowyourstuff.org. This handy website will backup all your photos of your belongings and allow you to easily create and manage an inventory of your belongings. If disaster ever hits, just go to the website from any computer and pull up your inventory for your insurance company! 

You can also add insurance policies and additional properties to your profile so you'll also have access to those important documents when you need them most!

Try it today and be safe this hurricane season!
