Preparing and storing a home inventory

Without a doubt, making a home inventory takes time and is a lot of work. Having stated that, it is still very important to do. If a hazard should hit your home, it will be upsetting, to say the least. You may find it difficult to try to put a list together of everything you have lost. At NavSav Insurance in Spring, TX, we will be here for you from beginning to end and when you file a claim we will be right there with you. 

Preparing and storing a home inventory

You can start your inventory in any room. Some people may prefer to start with the main rooms and others may prefer to go to the bedrooms. Have a large notebook and a pen and choose whichever room makes sense to you. Gather together any receipts or sales slips that you have and put them together with the description that they apply to. Let your eyes go up and just write down everything that you see. Open drawers, closets, and cupboards and write detailed descriptions of what you see. 

Go from one room to the other, take pictures from different angles and try to include any of the more expensive items in the photos.  

Once you have gotten everything listed with lots of detail, it is time to find a place to safely store your inventory. It is ideal if you can get it away from your home. A safe deposit box is a good option. If you must store it at home, be sure that it is in a container that is fire resistant and waterproof. Keeping a copy in the cloud is a good option so that you can easily get to it no matter where you are.
