Tips to Prevent Property Theft over the Holidays

Personal LinesHow the Grinch Stole Christmas is a made-up, Dr. Seuss tale but the stealing scenario can be a reality during the holiday season. At a time of hustle and bustle, spending time with family, shopping and running around, you may be leaving yourself open to potential risk. There a few simple tips that you can follow to prevent property theft this holiday season:

  1. Always leave a light on so your house doesn’t appear to be vacant or use automatic timers on holiday lights and decorations.
  2. Keep your car locked at all times. Be sure to hide your purchases or place them in the trunk and park in well-lit areas.
  3. If you live in an apartment building, ensure that all locks in the building are working properly and all windows are locked before you leave.
  4. Be attentive of gift placement and inventory. If you plan to set your tree by the window, place gifts away from the window and plain sight until Christmas Eve. Keep an inventory of all items purchased in the event you do become victim of theft.

Keep your holidays merry and bright by making sure your home and car are protected with the right insurance coverage. Work with a trusted AssuredPartners NL agent to ensure that you are adequately protected by calling (844) 507-2528.
