Preparing for a Storm: Contact your agent to make sure that your policy is current. Make sure that any changes have been made and that payments are up to date Take a personal inventory of your home and record your personal belongings Micro-chip your pet Trim all trees that are near or overhanging your home Gather personal hurricane supplies such as batteries, radio, flashlight, and water Check your windows and garage door to ensure that they are secure To Protect Your Property After A Loss: Take reasonable steps to protect your home and property from further damage by doing temporary repairs. Do not contract for any permanent repairs until an adjuster has inspected the damage. If you relocate from your address or change your contact phone numbers notify your agent and your adjuster. Take photographs of the damage. Keep all receipts and invoices. Use only licensed and insured contractors who are properly registered with the local Building Authority, and obtain itemized repair estimates.
