Nothing is more important than making sure your home is safe. When you are going to be away, you want to have peace of mind. Knowing your home will be there waiting for you when you return makes it easier to go away and enjoy yourself. A few easy steps can make sure you can go away and not lose a minute of sleep worrying about what is going on at home. At Insurancewide Company LLC in Phoenix, AZ, we have the experience to help our customers find the perfect home insurance.
Stop mail delivery
You can go onto the USPS website and sign up and fill out the Hold Mail Form. Always stop your mail a day or two before you are actually leaving to make sure your mail person got the message.
Have your lights set on a timer
One way to make your home safer is to make it appear to be occupied. It is simpler today with smart homes to make sure lights turn off and on in a random pattern. If you don’t have a smart home, you can buy timers for individual lights.
Set your home alarm
If you have an alarm system, it goes without saying it should be armed when you are away. If it is a monitored system, make them aware you will be away and the dates.
Talk to a trusted neighbor.
Your neighbors are your first line of defense when it comes to protecting your home. Especially one who walks the neighborhood daily will notice anything unusual and if they know you are away can report it to the police.
Don’t announce you are away on social media.
Don’t post pictures from your vacation until you return. You never know who has access to your social media. Talking about being away is like inviting a break-in.
