Make a list of your property and keep it in a safe place.

On the list, you should record:

• Brand Name
• Model Numbers and/or Names
• Serial Numbers
• Owner Applied Numbers (etched)
• A Description of the Item

Consider photographing or videotaping your property, especially if you have a collection of jewelry, art, or other small things, and keep it with your list that is stored in a safe place.

Remember that most insurance policies compensate for the loss of property with the fair market value, unless you specifically purchase insurance that covers replacement value. Check with your agent if you have questions about your policy.
