How to inventory your personal property correctly

Inventory Your Property

Many people learn after a fire or storm that they didn't have enough personal property coverage. Making a written inventory will help you decide how much insurance you need. It will also simplify claims.

Your inventory should list each item, its purchase date, value, and serial number. Photograph or videotape each room, including closets, open drawers, storage buildings, and garage. Keep the inventory and receipts for major items in a fireproof place or another location. Use TDI's Home Inventory Checklist to create your inventory.
