Make home safety a priority while you’re away for the holidays

 

The holidays can be a great time to get out of Illinois or Wisconsin to visit family you rarely get to see, hit the slopes or flee to the beach. Regardless of how you spend your time away, you need to ensure your house stays safe while you're gone.

A house left empty can be an opportunity for burglars, so before you pack your bags, prepare to protect the stuff that’s staying at home in Lincolnshire, Vernon Hills, Gurnee, or Libertyville.


At R Hobbs Insurance Agency, we want to make it a little easier for you to get out of town with peace of mind and return to everything you left behind, so here are some pointers for prepping your home before you travel. Contact us at (847) 680-0888 or chris@rhobbsinsurance.com if you have any questions or if you'd like additional information.

Lock it up
Check and double-check that you have locked all the doors and windows.

Check under the mat
. If you store an extra key outside your house, remove it.  Instead, give the key to a trusted friend or neighbor in case someone needs to enter in an emergency.

Communicate
. Inform a friend or neighbor that you will be away. Ask them to keep an eye on the house, and give them a way to reach you to report any suspicious activity. But don’t communicate your absence on social media!

Forgo deliveries
. Make sure to stop delivery of packages, mail, newspapers, and anything else that could pile up on your porch. Ask your trusted friend or neighbor to pick these items up every other day.

Remove temptations
. Do not leave wrapped gifts or expensive electronics visible through windows and doors.

Light it up
Make sure add timers to some lights.


From Lynn and Chris at R Hobbs Insurance Agency, we wish you, your family (and your home and belongings) a very safe and joyous holiday!
