Why is a home inventory important for your home insurance?

Okay, we get it. Taking a home inventory is hardly an exciting way to spend a weekend. Walking around, writing things down on a clipboard…yeah, maybe not the most fun thing to do on a Saturday. But it is very important when it comes to your insurance. A home inventory is basically a list of all the items in your house. No one wants or asks for their home to be destroyed, but if the unthinkable happens and a fire or burglary strikes your house, you’ll be better off if you have a detailed list of everything you own.

How can you prevent a car break-in?

Ah, what would we do without our cars? They’re faithful. Reliable (usually). An extension of ourselves. We spend hours upon hours in our cars—stuck in traffic, commuting to work, going grocery shopping, running errands, meeting friends. The amount of time we spend with our cars makes them become part of our personal space. We care about our cars.

So if someone were to ever break into your car, you’d feel violated. Betrayed. Unsafe. That car is your space. It belongs to you and it’s one of your best friends. It just happens to be a best friend that you’re required to leave unattended for hours at a time since you can’t exactly bring your car into the office or house with you. Someone breaking into your car and rifling through your belongings is as personal as if they broke into your home. It would be a nightmare.
