What is a video inventory?

Like many insurance companies, Gill Insurance Agency encourages our home insurance policyholders to make an inventory list of their personal property. These inventories make it easier to file a claim if you ever need to do so. Video inventories have become popular because they accurately show the state of the Plainfield, IN, property and its contents, but how do you make a video inventory?

Video Inventory Defined

A video inventory consists of a long-form video walk-through of your home that shows it accurately from every angle. You begin at the front door and tour the entire home, exiting through its back door if it features one. This video also features scheduled items, such as your stereo components, to show the condition in which you insured them.

Supplements to a Video Inventory

Your video inventory needs supplemental information. Include a written or typed written list of items you want scheduled for full value coverage in your home policy. It’s also a good idea to include snapshots of each scheduled item. Make two copies of the video and photos or store them digitally. We’ll need one copy if you ever need to file a claim. If your claim involves theft, you’ll need another copy for the police.
