insurance resolutionsTired of the same old New Year’s resolutions that you seem to forget after January? Here are three insurance resolutions for 2020 that you can accomplish easily, and that could pay off in important ways.

1. Schedule a Review

If you’re like most people, you simply renew your insurance annually and never give it a second thought. But a lot can change in a year. Have you had a baby, installed a new pool, made a major purchase or adopted a dog? Any of these things—and many more—can impact your coverage. Contact us to schedule a meeting to discuss your policy. We promise to make it quick and painless, and you’ll leave knowing you have the right protection in place.

2. Take a Home Inventory

This one might take a little longer, but with today’s technology, it’s easier than ever and can save you a lot of time and trouble in the future. A home inventory basically catalogs all the belongings in your home so that if they are damaged or lost due to theft, fire or other covered disasters, you can more easily include them on your insurance claim and recover compensation. Check out these tips to get started. Already have a home inventory? Review it and make any necessary updates; you’ll to be good to go for another year. You can make this one of your annual insurance resolutions!

3. Commit to Distraction-Free Driving

This resolution should be easy, but it takes a real commitment. Cell phones, GPS and video screens all vie to pull your attention away from where it should be: on the road. Distracted driving takes many forms, from children arguing in the back seat to eating or typing a destination into your GPS app. However, a distraction of even a few seconds could be all it takes to change your life forever. Check out these tips for managing distractions, and then make them part of your driving routine.


As we close out another year, we want to thank you for your continuing trust. We know you have a choice of insurance companies and are honored that you choose to partner with your friends and neighbors at The Dowd Agencies. Happy New Year!
