Over the last month or two, there has been bad weather and storms devastating many areas of our country. I want to share with you the importance of filing an insurance claim the RIGHT way with the RIGHT DATES so that you are prepared in case you find yourself needing to file a claim.
It can really make a HUGE difference when filing a claim, especially when it pertains to wind, hail, or lightning damage. If it isn’t turned in with the correct date, it COULD CAUSE an increase in premium and loss of discounts as a chargeable claim.
If you must make a claim, you will need the following:
- Pictures or video of items of value
- Receipts for large purchases
- Serial numbers for the items that require them
Be sure to keep all records in a safe place – like a fire safe lock box or a safety deposit box.
One of the most important reasons to do business with our agency is the assistance we provide when you’ve had a loss. It is CRUCIALLY important to check in with our office EVERY time for advice BEFORE filing a claim.
