Review your insurance when moving houses

Are you about to move? This is probably a good opportunity to assess your Atlanta insurance. Although you probably have a lot to think about when you’re moving, it’s a great time to check over your insurance policies, revise them where necessary, and even look at methods of saving on your costs.

Chances are, you will be doing a bit of downsizing and throwing some things out. You might also plan to buy new appliances or furniture for your new home. Take this chance to look over your home inventory and update it as needed. Having an current home inventory can be especially important if you need to file a claim. Don’t forget that if you have invested in any valuable new appliances or pieces of art work for your new home you might need to have them listed independently from your main home insurance policy.

Make sure your coverage is sufficient to cover the rebuilding costs of your new house and the replacement of any possessions you have. You may want to look around at improving safety measures or installing fire prevention equipment such as home sprinkler systems to help reduce your home insurance premiums.

Speak with your agent about bundling options also. Often when you open a number of different policies with the same insurer, you become eligible for substantial discounts on your Atlanta insurance costs. Moving is pricey enough, you do not want to be paying more than you have to for your insurance!
