Homeowner’s insurance plays an important role in society. It protects your most important financial asset, your home. When most people think of damage to their home, they tend to think of fire or theft. During the fall months, home burglaries increase. Here are some things that you can do to reduce your probability of being burglarized. Thieves consider these things when looking for potential targets.
If you own a home or rent, you need the right kind of homeowner’s insurance. Homeowner’s insurance is needed to protect yourself, your family, and your property from loss and/or damage. We can provide you with many homeowner’s or renting insurance options. Let us do the shopping for you.
There are things you can do to reduce the likelihood of being a victim
- Cars parked in the driveway or on the street. If you do not have a garage for your car, always keep your car locked and remove valuables. If you must park on the street, install a loud alarm system with a visible, blinking dash light.
- Air conditioners. Many thieves will try to steal anything with metal for the scrap money. Make sure your equipment is well connected to your home.
- Sheds and detached garages can be an easy target for thieves. Keep them lit and locked.
- Sports equipment and bikes are prime targets for thieves. A thin bike chain or wheel lock won’t deter many thieves. Some will unbolt a chained wheel and carry away the rest of the bike!
- Keep your yard clean and trees and shrubs trimmed. If your windows are covered by trees it makes it easier for thieves to break into your home un-noticed.
- Secure your sliding glass door by adding auxiliary patio door locks or installing screws into the track above the sliding door frame to keep the door from being lifted off the track.
