Be ready to provide the following:
In the event of theft, your claims representative will ask you for a list of missing items, along with any receipts for those items. Photographs, videos, owner’s manuals, serial numbers and credit card statements are useful to document personal belongings that may have been damaged or stolen.
We recommend keeping a home inventory in a location other than your home, such as with a relative, in a bank safe-deposit box, or with an online home inventory service like Know Your Stuff.
This is a team effort. We’ll do our part. But we need you to help out by taking some steps to protect yourself and your property from further damage.
Please wait until a claims adjustor assesses the damage before starting permanent repairs. We encourage you, however, to schedule permanent repairs as soon as possible. Find a local, licensed, bonded and insured contractor with the free Safeco contractor referral service.
If you are unable to live in your home while the damage is assessed and your home is being repaired or rebuilt, Safeco will help pay for additional living expenses, for up to 24 months. If repairs take longer than the period of time covered in your policy, you may be eligible for additional assistance from federal emergency programs.
Safeco will replace damaged items and materials with the same type and quality of materials you had before your home was damaged. For example, if you had a fiberglass roof, we will pay to repair or replace the damaged area with fiberglass, but we won’t pay to replace it with more expensive slate tile. If you decide to upgrade your house with better or more expensive materials, you’re welcome to do so, but you’ll need to pay the additional expense out of your own pocket.
Any time you make improvements to your property, be sure to talk to your local Safeco agent to find out if your coverage is still enough, and if you’re eligible for any discounts.
