It’s time for that much needed summer vacation. You’ve got your bags all packed, your music playlist is downloaded, and your coolest sunglasses are on – but what about your house? At the Gill Agencies, we want to make sure your home is protected while you’re traveling out of the Fort Mill and Rock Hill, SC areas. Take this advice from our homeowners insurance experts:
- Lock everything and hide keys wisely –Make sure you lock all doors and windows at your house before you leave. Never, ever leave a spare house key under the mat. This is the first place thieves will look at to find a point of entry into your home.
- Tell a friend – Let a trusted friend know you’re leaving. Ask them if they can come by and check on your home every once in a while.
- Store valuables in a safety deposit box – If there are items that are valuable to you, take them out of the house and put them in a safety deposit box. That way only you can get access to them.
- Make sure your homeowners insurance is up-to-date – A home insurance policy is one of the best ways to guard your property. In the event that a burglary or other incident takes place while you’re away, you’ll be covered – as long as you have the right coverage and your policy is paid up. Double check this information before you head out of town.
