Take a minute now to think of everything you own. It may seem easy, but you possess more than you can recall on a moments notice. In the event of tragedy, you will won't be able to remember every item, how much it cost, brand name, how much it's worth, serial numbers, condition and other valuable information your insurance company and police will need to know to help you recover or replace it.
The importance of having a HOME INVENTORY can not be stressed enough.
During the mid 1990's, two of my siblings lost everything they had to fire. Thankfully, no one was hurt however, after the shock began to wear off it was time to contact the insurance company to make the claim. Only then did they realize the pain wasn't over. They had nothing to give to their insurance company to prove what they owned, resulting in added grief and frustration to a crisis and family heartache. Ultimately it took close to a year, untold number of phone calls, meetings and headaches before it was all over. Don't let it happen to you!
