If you are celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah and purchased some extra gifts - especially jewelry, furs and antiques you will want to make sure they are covered properly on your home or renters policy. There is usually a very limited amount of coverage for these items. Please contact us for a free review of your current insurance or for a free quote.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
