Be Sure To Insure Valuable Holiday Gifts…
It’s the most wonderful time of year for receiving those extra-special gifts! Newly acquired valuables such as diamonds rings and other fine jewelry, as well as golf carts, ATV’s antiques, artwork, and collectibles may need to be scheduled to existing policies to properly insure against loss. Remember to ask your Personal Lines Account Manager at HBB about adequate coverage for your new prized possessions as soon as possible.
Timely Holiday Safety Tips
Some reminders to keep you and your home safe during the holidays and this winter.
Prevent fires during the holidays by: 1)Turning off decorative lights when no one is home and before going to sleep. 2) Being ultra-cautious when using candles or by choosing flameless candles instead. 3) Keeping Christmas trees well-watered and away from radiators, fireplaces and other heat sources.
Keep pipes from freezing and bursting by: 1) Turning off outdoor faucets and disconnecting hoses. 2) Wrapping pipes in crawl spaces and along outside walls in insulation. 3) Letting a trickle of warm water flow through facuets on outside walls.
HBB would like to thank our client, Paul Davis Restoration of the Upstate, for these timely tips. 1-888-4-PDR-NOW

A Great New Year’s Resolution:
Have you recently:
Schedule An Annual Policy Review
Start off the New Year with an annual review of your life insurance policies.
- Moved into a new house?
- Taken a new job?
- Sent a child to college?
- Had your assets affected by the economy?
A review is recommended to make sure that as life changes, so does your coverage. You may find that existing policies aren’t necessarily in sync with your financial needs even from five years ago. Please give us a call to schedule a complimentary review at 864-527-0424.
