Over the holidays, many may have received new valuable gifts. With the new year here, it is important you turn your attention to insuring and protecting your new valuables. Here are a few things to consider:
Avoid over-sharing: Posting pictures and videos of your new items online can greatly increase your risk of theft. As much as you may want to share your new gifts with family and friends online, you never know who else may see your posts.
Update your home security: If you do not have a home security system, it is a good idea to install one for added security. It is also recommended to keep your valuables locked up in a safe location such as a lock box or safe in your home.
Insure your new valuables: Limits on your homeowners policy may not be enough to cover the cost of replacing your new belongings. Should you lose your items which may be worth more than the limits on your policy, you will be left to pay out of pocket. Luckily, Edison Insurance Company offers Premium Packages which allow for additional coverage for items such as jewelry, furs, and cash.
