Burglars Are Christmas Shopping And Your House May Be Their Next Stop

Your local criminal is getting ready to do some Christmas shopping and he wants your gifts.
In California, for example, there were 22,400 burglaries in December 2015, (the latest statistics available) 18% more than the average month.

 

When you leave your home, keep lights on, close your drapes, and never leave packages on your front porch.  Thieves will follow delivery trucks waiting for an opportunity to strike. Most online retailers send emails and text messages so purchasers know almost immediately when a package has been delivered.

 

It is important to have the right homeowner’s insurance in place in order for these kinds of claims to be covered. Call us for a free review.
