Benefits of a Home Inventory
Protect your household assets with visual proof and a detailed master list created by a professional residential inventory company
What is a Home Inventory?
A conventional home inventory is simply a list of personal property used to provide proof of ownership, primarily to substantiate financial losses after a home disaster. To date, creating a home inventory has been a DIY project using pen and paper, and/or a digital camera or smart phone. Supporting documents, such as receipts and certificates, also need to be physically gathered, stored and maintained in a folder (preferably offsite).
What is a TakeStock Home Inventory?
TakeStock has developed methods and proprietary technology to make obtaining a comprehensive home inventory effortless. Using specialized cameras and software, we capture visual proof of ownership (also location and condition) of your possessions, while making it easy to document and detail each item online, 24/7, in your own, secured online account. Once there, you can virtually walk through your home, search, view and select individual items, while adding descriptions, estimated values, purchase dates, receipts, certificates, serial numbers, and other relevant information. Now, everything you own is accounted for and accessible in one place, safely secured off-site.
While most homeowners recognize the importance of having one, the commitment of time and effort necessary to perform a home inventory is beyond the inclinations and capabilities of most; the far majority (over 60%) simply have not attempted it. Yet, the consequences of not having a thorough, highly-detailed home inventory become very apparent when an unexpected event occurs.
A detailed home inventory helps you right-size your homeowner policy, while helping determine overall value of your home and its contents—an absolute necessity should your home be burglarized or damaged/destroyed by fire or flood. LEARN MORE »
