A Idea from Hadfield Agency

An idea from the Hadfield Agency

Have you ever played the game where someone brings a tray of items around for everyone to view, then they remove the tray from the room and everyone is asked to write down all the items you can remember?  The person who could remember the most items was the winner.  If you have played this game, how did you do?

If you had a severe fire or total loss, you would be asked to make an inventory of all your belongings and their value and it would not be a game.  The task of remembering everything you own from your socks to your flat screen television and determining out how much it’s all worth sounds intimidating doesn’t it?  Could you do this without looking?  What about when you just lost your home?

Replacing our homes after a loss is very important but replacing our contents is one the most important aspects of picking up the pieces and putting our lives back together.  Be prepared.  We can provide you with a brochure to use to take an inventory or you could visit www.knowyourstuff.org.  If you are a client of our agency we recommend you take digital photos and email those to us.  They will be here should need them.

And we will be there when you need us.  The process of building trust and peace of mind begins the first time you sit down with one of our agents.  It’s not about selling you a policy it’s about you knowing what to do and who to turn to for advice and assistance in the event the unthinkable happens.
