Easthampton, MA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
Independent insurance agency, Banas & Fickert Insurance Agency, encourages Massachusetts residents to check-in on their coverage this month. With Valentine’s Day here, there will be a number of diamonds and jewelry exchanges going on.
According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the total spending that is typically reached on Valentine’s Day is $18.6 billion. Of that amount, at least $4.4 billion will be spent on diamonds, silver, and gold on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, a large percentage of these gifts will go unprotected once given.
Fortunately, Banas & Fickert Insurance Agency is here to help locals schedule their jewelry with a jewelry floater. A floater policy offers additional coverage for expensive items and valuables whose worth exceed the amount covered in a standard policy. It adds protection in the event that the valuable is misplaced, damaged, or stolen. By adding this floater onto their current home insurance policy, individuals can feel peace of mind knowing that their sentimental gift is properly insured.
The agency would also like to remind individuals to add their gift to their home inventory lists. It is important to save the receipt of the item, take a photo, and document any other important information (place of purchase, serial number, etc.) In the event that one needs to file a claim, this information will come in handy during the claims process, and could possibly speed it up.
For more information on how to properly cover Valentine’s Day valuables, please contact the agents at Banas & Fickert Insurance Agency by calling 800-590-8175 or visiting the agency on the web. The agency would be more than happy to discuss policy options, as well as address any questions about creating and/or updating a home inventory list.
