When you were away from home and left it unattended, you no doubt had anxious thoughts and doubts. We have all had a sense of misery related to our home. Such as whether you forgot an appliance turned on, whether you locked the front door, whether you closed the windows. One of the main reasons to insure your home is the security that this type of insurance gives you. If you have a longer trip ahead - a vacation or a business trip, you will be calm because your home is safe.
