If your home or business has experienced a burglary or been vandalized, you may need to file an insurance claim with your carrier. If your property has been stolen or vandalized, you will not only have to deal with the actual damages sustained, but deal with the sense of uncertainty and fear that will often remain after the loss occurs. For theft claims, it is important that you know what you have. If you haven’t done so already, it is a good idea to create an inventory list of your contents. Doing so will likely help the insurance claims process go much smoother if you should ever experience a loss due to theft of your home or business. If you are unable to create an actual written inventory of your personal contents or business personal property, you can use your phone to make a video file of your contents, saving the video on a secure device. While not perfect, it may help you create a contents inventory after a loss and even assist in identifying and confirming what is missing.
