Home Inventory Software for Easier Insurance Claims

By November 1, 2013

Home inventory software needs to keep data secure.

Remember the destruction Hurricane Sandy left along the East Coast last year? It took weeks, even months, for people to start rebuilding their homes and some of the repairs and rebuilding is not finished yet. A couple of weeks later in November, tornadoes ravaged parts of Minnesota, where snow is the norm at this time of year.

Whether or not destructive storms are expected, protecting all that you own from getting damaged is not always possible and you'll need to use your home owners or rental insurance. Use home inventory software to record details about your electronics, appliances, vehicles, furniture and any other items and you'll have all the information you need to make filing claims easier. Home inventory software stores images of receipts, serial numbers, replacement cost  and other information often required to make the insurance claim process go smoothly.

Learn more about the features in home inventory software, and check out the online home inventory software that is available as well as Windows and Mac home inventory software.

Home inventory software used at home without off-site storage of the results AND the software is useless!

Agreed! Off site storage of the data or using online home inventory only makes sense.

I agree with you that home inventory software is better for insurance claim but it should be on site so that user can use this facility in a better way.
