On August 9, we celebrate National Book Lovers Day! Which series or book is your favorite? Did you know that if you own rare books, you can add them to your homeowner’s insurance policy as scheduled property? Art, jewelry, comic books, and other valuables can also be scheduled.
A March 2013 study found that only a third of renters in the United States had renter’s insurance. Renter’s insurance can cover most of your personal property in the event that it is damaged as a result of a covered event for as little as $10 per month, depending on the amount of coverage you select. Please let us know if you require a renter’s insurance policy! You may even be eligible for a discount on multiple policies! Visit to learn more about renter’s insurance. Many people take their last road trip of the summer over Labor Day weekend. When you’re on a road trip, what one essential item is a must?
The road becomes even more dangerous in the fall. Streets are wet and canvassed in leaves and flotsam and jetsam from swirling days. Make sure your brakes and tires are in good condition, leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, and give yourself plenty of room to stop. Hello, Autumn!
The National Fire Prevention Week comes to an end today! Small steps can yield significant safety benefits: Before leaving your home or going to bed, make sure that flammable materials are kept away from open flames, that chimneys are swept and checked, and that candles are put out. Having adequate insurance for your home is another aspect of fire safety.
Halloween costumes for children should include reflective tape, lights, and bright colors! Before taking your kids trick-or-treating, make sure you teach them about street safety.
The end of daylight savings time is at 2 a.m. This indicates that it is time to set the time back an hour!
Are you planning a holiday party? Take the time to clean out your hall closet instead of moving guests’ coats to a bedroom. This gives you the opportunity to remove coats, shoes, and other random items from your closet, allowing you to decide what needs to be kept and what can be donated. In addition, you can confidently display a clean closet by allowing guests to hang or grab their own coats.
We would like to wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving as people begin their Thanksgiving journeys across the nation, state, and city.
Are you driving to your vacation spot? Verify that your vehicle is in good working order. Before crossing the river and going through the woods, check your oil, tires, and emergency kit.
Do any of you feel soaked? Our region is likely to see more wind and rain over the next few days. When driving, keep an eye out for “Road Closed” signs, use your headlights, and give yourself plenty of room to stop. Be sure to get the other person’s driver’s license number, name, and address if you get into an accident. Also, get their insurance information. Keep dry and safe!
