More Information

  • Invest and review your homeowners' and/or renters' insurance. Make certain it covers all your items, including things you've recently bought such as jewelry and electronics. Ask about an umbrella policy to add extra, inexpensive coverage.

    Let a few trusted neighbors know you'll be out of town so they can keep an eye on the place. Give them your contact information as well as information for your security company.

    If possible, consider removing any high-dollar items and store them in a safe deposit box at your bank.

    Consider buying a large “gun-type” safe for all your valuables. Get one that can be bolted to the floor.

    Pay someone you trust to water flowers, turn on/off lights and televisions and to park occasionally in your driveway.
