Natural disasters can come upon us at any time. Unfortunately for many people, some of the most important items and mementos are lost forever. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can take steps today to decide what things you want to protect and keep in safe holding.
Some items, such as heirlooms or family photos, may have sentimental value that can never be replaced if they are suddenly destroyed in a disaster. Other items, such as birth certificates and social security cards can be replaced, but not before a lengthy process. By making a list of the items that hold the highest priority and value, you can have peace of mind knowing these things will be kept safe and secure in your and your family’s time of need. In addition to being kept safe, you are also ensuring ease of access to documents that may be time sensitive in urgent situations. Insurance policies, for example, are often needed within days of an event. What happens when these documents are lost or otherwise unavailable? How can you secure these items today?
By placing your items in a virtual vault, you can rest assured that your most important items, including videos, photos, policies and other documents, are soundly protected. Not only are your items safe and secure, but they are easily and immediately accessible by you or anyone you give access to. With high security privacy settings, you are able to control who sees what and when.
While many people make these types of arrangements as a way to help their families have what they need in the event of their death, it has become clear that that is not the only reason we should do so. Life happens. Disaster may come, and if it does, you will save yourself a lot of headache and heartache by safely storing your most important items in a foolproof vault. With a virtual vault, you can rest assured that your valuable possessions will withstand any disaster, accident, or hardware failure. In the event you need immediate access, they will be right where you left them, ready for retrieval.
Like most people, you may not expect a natural disaster to ever affect you, but there is no harm in making preparations in advance. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “You never have trouble if you are prepared for it.”
