Home With Car In DrivewayWhile it's fun to go on vacation, you could be exposing your home and possessions to burglars if you're not careful. Here's how to keep your home protected while you're away.
  1. I always have someone come and check our home daily. This can either be a family member, friend or neighbor. If this isn't an option, I suggest a home sitter, or if you've got a pet, a pet sitter. Just make sure they're bonded and have insurance in place.
  2. If you're leaving for a longer term, let Canada Post know. Have the person whom you've got checking your home empty the mailbox.
  3. Have timers on a couple of lights as well as a radio.
  4. Have someone hired to keep your driveway cleaned. In fact, I ask one of my neighbors to park in my driveway. As I say, the more lived in it looks the less likely burglars will be interested.
  5. I can't say enough about a home security system - I've got one that has motion sensors, heat sensors, water sensors and smoke-fire sensors; it saves you money on insurance and the signs on the doors and windows is the number 1 deterrent for thieves.
  6. Unplug your garage door as well.
  7. When away, don't post your photos on Facebook; thieves are always on the lookout for these type of postings.
  8. Make sure all doors are securely locked and I turn off my water as well.
  9. Make sure you have adequate Travel Insurance.
  10. Check with us to see how often your home has to be checked, as some companies have different time periods.
If disaster strikes, make sure you're protected. Call Heritage Insurance at (306) 693-7640 for more information on Moose Jaw home insurance.
