Cheers to You – Dining Table!

I’m notorious in my family and among my friends for being passionately attached to the idea of eating at the table.  Don’t get me wrong, I agree that there are certain times when eating off your lap is a good option but I would argue that most of the time, sitting down at a table […]

35 Years old and still the coolest jug around!

It’s true, the  eye-catching Stelton Vacuum Jug, designed in 1977 by Erik Magnussen , is still considered one of the most stylish and functional jugs available.  The innovative design was awarded the ID-prize by the Danish Society of Industrial Design in 1977 and again in 2007, becoming the first product ever to win the coveted design award […]

It takes a lot of effort and a good amount of financial stability when it comes to keeping a well managed household, one that you have always dreamed of having since you were young and of course amidst the complexities of life these days it is a safe bet to be sure that you invest on content insurance to be assured that the home you have built is left well protected.

As homeowners one of the many worries that you surely encounter daily is the safety of your entire household, including everything that you have bought with your hard earned money and this is not a unique issue to think about often since these days burglary and theft can happen at about any moment to anyone.

Find and Compare Providers
There are a good amount of insurance providers out there that can offer you the best assistance and guarantee that all of your needs will be delivered as you expect when it comes to coverage for all of the contents within your home, but it is your task however to go through each of these companies and sort out which one will give you the best benefits for your personal needs. A lot of companies these days market themselves to have the best policies, which is why you may have a tough decision on your hands, but going through all of your potential providers and comparing each one will definitely allot a clearer vision for you on choosing the best plan for your household.

Investigate Through Other Clients
To have an even clearer idea of which provider you can surely trust, you can also look up what other clients have to say when it comes to the services rendered to them, especially when it came time that they needed the assistance and benefits from their provider. Going through some of the client feedback and reviews online as well as getting to see those having their own consultations as you go in for an actual appointment will definitely give you a clearer view of just how much regard a provider has for their clients and the extent to which they are able to deliver on their word for guaranteed assistance and aid.

Prepare a List of Needs
Write down every detail that you expect and need in terms of support and aid as you imagine the worst case scenario about your home contents and list all of these down as this will be a good basis as you prepare for consultation with a provider. Present your list of needs to a potential provider and see which policies they offer best suits what you expect from them, this makes things clearer for both of you and will make the policy selection a lot easier.

Budgeting and Finances
One of the many reasons that you are willing to invest on a policy is the fact that everything inside your home is of value and indicating this to your chosen provider is important. As such you should also discuss with them any financial issues that could come up so that they can aptly give you leeway in terms of payment schemes or discounted rates.

Nostalgia rules above all

It’s funny how things from our childhood can subconsciously dictate our tastes in adult life. Growing up in rural Metchosin with German parents, they recreated their love of Bavaria in the houses we lived in. I recently found some photos of the first house they renovated together, so long ago… The built-in nook in our […]

Vic-Town Parallels

Accurately Victoria-like, this Portlandia skit pokes fun of our Cascadian ways. I’m off to silk screen whale silhouettes on every vintage item in my house.

But seriously folks – quirky, island-times Victoria means that we will always do things in our own ways, and on our own time.

Aint no Mountain High Enough

What a blustery weekend Victoria! Living in Victoria we’re a bit spoiled when it comes to our ‘Canadian Winter’ – not much snow here, and less rain than Vancouver. However! Depending on where you live we get a lot of wind here in the Capital city.
