Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday…. You know what that means? The Christmas season is here, and shoppers are out in full force. While Christmas can be a very magical time of year, it can also be very stressful, busy and overwhelming.
Eastern Public Adjusters Team wants you to have a great holiday season and so we have compiled some tips that we hope will help you stay safe while out shopping for those special loved ones in your life.
Protect Your Car:
While shopping, never leave valuables in your car. If you must, make sure to hide them out of clear sight, preferably in a trunk. Keep your doors locked. Park in well-lit areas at night. Thieves target what they can see and what is quick and easy to snatch, so don’t make it easy for them!
When pumping gas, if you must leave your car make sure to lock your doors. Make sure to keep the doors on the other side of the car locked while pumping gas.
Always be aware of your surroundings. Keep your valuables secured. Don’t leave your purse or shopping bags laying out where someone could easily walk away with them or grab them. Avoid leaving your purse in a shopping cart.
Pay attention to those around you. If you see something suspicious don’t hesitate to report it to the store management, security or the local police.
We hope that these tips are helpful reminders while you shop this holiday season. Although we may not be able to cover every safety tip, or possible scenario to prepare for, the Eastern Public Adjusters Team of professionals are always here to help you stay prepared, and of course if disaster strikes, we are here to guide you through the process every step of the way. We here at Eastern Public Adjusters wish you and your family a wonderful and safe holiday season!
