A hurricane or other disaster could leave your home in serious disarray. Picking up the pieces after such a large loss is often chaotic and stressful–and that’s especially true if you don’t have a home inventory.
A home inventory can be a list, photos or a video. The goal is to have a record of your personal property so that everything is accounted for in the event it’s lost, stolen or destroyed. The good news is that creating an inventory is easier than everthanks to online tools and programs that expedite the process. In fact, you can even use your mobile phone to get the job done. Watch the video above to learn more about why a home inventory matters and how to create one.
One helpful tool that can assist you is Know Your Stuff®, a web-based home inventory program from the Insurance Information Institute. Erie Insurance also has a home inventory form that you can print out and fill in. No matter which option you prefer, don’t neglect to do your inventory. It might just save you time and headaches down the line.
