It’s amazing how many personal belongings we acquire over time! Do you know how much your possessions are worth? To avoid problems in the event of a disaster, use this form to do an inventory of your possessions. Then contact your insurance broker or agent for adequate coverage. When you purchase home or damage insurance, it is essential to be able to prove the value of your assets.
Store a copy of your inventory form in a safe place outside of your home. It is highly recommended that you include bills, photographs or a video of your assets. Receipts, warranties and instruction manuals also serve as proof in case of an insurance claim.
Once completed, this inventory form serves as a reminder if you need to make a claim. Don’t hesitate to include any other documents that you consider relevant (Excel software required).
