Many people don’t think they have a lot of value in their personal property. Sure, there’s the big-screen TV, laptop or tablet computer, and maybe the home theater system, but the rest is just clothes, furniture, tools, dishes, and stuff. Most of it will probably end up in the garbage or at a garage sale.
However, what we as insurance agents learn is that after a loss (when policyholders compile a list of their damaged and destroyed property and what it would take to replace it) they often find the cost stunning. We don’t want you to discover that you were under-insured, especially when it’s too late.
