Speed Up the Claims Process:

Home Inventory Checklist

No one knows your home better than you do.

According to NOAA’s National Centers for Environment Information (NCEI), since 1980, the U.S. has witnessed 212 weather and climate disasters, including hurricanes, floods, severe storms, tornadoes, hail, wildfires and drought. Each of these events reached or exceeded $1 billion (including adjustments based on the CPI as of January 2017) in costs related to damage. When combined, these 212 events exceed, a staggering, $1.2 trillion in damages.

After a destructive storm, flood or fire, one of the most important things to do is create an inventory of items that have been lost or damaged. A home inventory checklist list can speed up the insurance claims process and help prove certain losses. It is important that you document your loss as specifically as possible.

Important to keep in mind…

  • It’s important that you inventory all of your personal items.
  • Be sure you are valuing your items at current replacement cost and not what you remember you paid for them.
  • Take notes as you remember the items that have been lost.
  • Photos can be valuable pieces of evidence.  Even if you don’t have staged photos of your furniture, you can still use photos where the furniture appears in the background.

“very helpful”

I just wanted to thank you and your firm for being there when I needed you to be and for helping me out during one of the most difficult times of my life. Without your help I would have been at the mercy of FEMA, and we all know what that means. You have been very helpful, and everyone that I have spoken with at your firm was always courteous.

“very happy right now”

I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your efforts. I was getting nowhere fast trying to accomplish this on my own so I gave you a shot. You all were very methodical and kept me in the loop every step of the way. Would I have liked the process to be quicker? Yes, but I am sure you would also. In the end, I got more than I expected going in so I am very happy right now.
