Our Advice to All Homeowners
If possible, take a few steps prior to evacuating (if that’s mandatory for an impending storm)
Try to keep all insurance information, policies and documents together as best you can so you know where it’s all located when it’s time to report the claim.
Create a comprehensive home inventory. Keep a record of all the contents and images of the property. A quick walk through with a video camera is a great and easy way to go about that.
Keep all receipts and documents of any extra expenses you incur. Hotel stay or purchases you may have made due to not having something you needed, such as daily essentials.
Keep a copy of who you spoke to and the claim number for future reference.
