A Home Inventory Protects You
Where insurance is involved, you need to know what you own.
Do not overlook the importance of having a home inventory.
As a homeowner, chances are you will have to make some sort of insurance claim in the future. But home insurance policies are not necessarily written in favor of the homeowner. And it’s not the insurance adjuster’s job to know what you own—it’s yours.
Be prepared to deal with your insurance company by having in place a comprehensive home inventory by third-party, bonded and insured professionals. It brings peace of mind to know you can provide undeniable proof of all that you own when the time comes.
Understand the value of what you own.
For the most part, your home insurance policy makes assumptions about the value of your things. Assumptions (and subjectivity) are not what you want as a homeowner when seeking replacement value for what you may have lost.
A TakeStock inventory gives you an easy way to see all that you own at one time, and be able to assign values to it. This not only helps you decide up front on the exact amount of home and contents coverage you need, but upon submitting a claim, it provides the detailed visual and electronic record you will need as proof of value, helping immensely with speeding up the claim and maximizing reimbursement.
Be able to instantly provide a full accounting for insurance claims.
You need to know—and be able to prove—what you own. Especially when it comes to large losses from a home fire, tornado or flood. A home inventory protects you by providing visual proof of what you owned, from home materials and fixtures, to individual items, their location and condition.
Those you allow will be able to virtually walk though the home to see (and verify) everything in it as if there in real life. Go further by documenting what may not have been captured in your 360 tour, items like china, jewelry, and collections stored away in drawers, cabinets and closets. TakeStock can include images of fronts and backs, serial numbers, hallmarks etc. when accessible.
The result is an extensive accounting, backed up by photographic evidence, of every individual item you own, stored conveniently online—the safest place to keep your information in the event of a worst-case scenario.
