Keeping your home safe when you are away

When you are away from home, knowing your home is safe makes it easier to relax and concentrate on the reason you are away. Whether it is a much-needed vacation or a business trip having a good home insurance policy makes leaving home less stressful. In Ball Ground, GA at The Sanford Group, we are committed to customer service. As independent agents, we work for our customers, not one carrier and we will do everything we can to get you the best policy at the best price. 

Don’t announce your plans

Avoid the temptation to go on social media and tell everyone about the wonderful vacation you are taking or the business trip you are going on. It is too easy for that information to get into the wrong hands. Don’t post selfies of you on the beach etc. or complain about the weather in another location. You can update your family in a text or a phone call without alerting the entire world. 

Stop your mail

Don’t allow your mail and packages to accumulate while you are away. You can stop your delivery by going to the USPS website and filling out a hold mail form. Stop your mail at least a day early so you can be sure your carrier has received the notice.

Make friends with your neighbors

Your neighbors are one of the best ways to make sure nothing unusual is happening at your home while you are away. This is one occasion when having a nosy neighbor can come in very handy.

Set the alarm

This goes without saying but make sure all your windows and doors are locked and you set the alarm if you have a home security system. 

In Ball Ground, GA The Sanford Group looks forward to helping you with all your home insurance needs.
