LEAWOOD, Kan., Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Many property owners are uncomfortable talking about insurance and purchasing a suitable plan. After all, most don't want to think about a crisis much less plan for one. In the unfortunate situation of property loss, however, those who do carry insurance want to make the most of their coverage. This is precisely why it is imperative to update insurance coverage regularly with an accurate home inventory, says Rick Bell, founder of Kansas City-area KC Home Inventory.
"Losing personal property is extremely stressful, no matter the cause," Bell says. "Yet homeowners and other property owners are often shocked when their insurance won't cover the true value of personal possessions, particularly antiques, artwork, collectibles and similar items. If insurance companies don't have a professionally prepared inventory, and, more specifically one that's up to date, compensation will weigh in on the conservative side. Insurance companies can and do deny claims if there's no proof to support what's been lost, damaged or stolen."
Bell has repeatedly helped clients who have learned this lesson the hard way. For example, distraught families who lost possessions in fires had failed to update insurance policies to reflect their valuables' current worth. Without an accurate and well-documented home inventory, the insurance companies denied a portion of their claims, making compensation and recovery a serious challenge. Not wanting to repeat this costly mistake, similar clients are now turning to KC Home Inventory.
"Since 1993, KC Home Inventory has earned a reputation for providing what insurance companies want -- accurate, detailed home inventories," Bell says. "Our trained home inventory professionals use special software to prepare the necessary photos and written documentation, making it a stress-free, seamless experience.
