Home and Personal Property Inventory
By keeping an accurate inventory of your personal possessions, you could save hundreds, even thousands of dollars at the time of a loss. If your home were burned, vandalized, or destroyed in some other way, could you remember the value of each and every item? Keeping an inventory will also help you determine how much insurance you should carry. You may be surprised by the value of your accumulated possessions.
In addition to your inventory sheets, another way to supplement your inventory is by taking a picture or video of each room in your home after you have finished cataloging the contents.
After you have your inventory complete, be sure to keep it in a safe place away from your home such as a relatives home or you can even bring copies of the inventory and pictures/video to our office for safe keeping in your file.

Credit Card Inventory
In the event that your wallet is lost or stolen, would you have all of the credit card numbers and telephone numbers on hand to be able to call and report the card lost or stolen? It is also a good idea to create a credit card inventory sheet in the event this ever happens.
