Is Your Teen Moving To College To Be On Their Own? Prepare For Mishaps And Save

If you are getting ready to move your teen out for college and you worry about them having mishaps that will cost you a lot of money, you can make some preparations in advance. If you worry your teen is going to do things like get locked out, have items stolen out of their living space, or end up leaving the lights on in their car, you can plan ahead for them. Here are a few things to get them before you leave them on their own.

Extra Apartment and Car Keys

Americans spend thousands of dollars on lost items over their lifetime, and you don't want your teen to pay the dealership or landlord for lost keys. The last thing you want when your teen is away at school is for them to be locked out of their car or their house. If you're worried about this happening, get extra keys made before you say goodbye. You can have a locksmith come to the living space and make a key for both the house and the car, and then you can help your teen find appropriate places to hide the keys. You may even want to get doubles so they can leave spares both in the house and in the car. Contact a company like One Call Lock & Key for help with this.

Rental Insurance

Rental insurance covers a wide variety of things, and it can even cover things that happen with your teen's automobile in the driveway. Make sure your teen has all of their electronics, school books, and other valuables covered under the policy, so you don't have to cover expenses from a major disaster or from theft out of your own pockets. Talk with the company you already use for homeowners insurance or auto to get a quote. You can get actual cash value coverage or replacement cost coverage for your teen. 

Auto Essentials

There are a lot of mishaps that can happen while your teen is away, like a flat tire or low battery. Prepare your teen for these unexpected problems by putting a can of flat tire fixer and some jumper cables in the back of their trunk.  An auto club membership with towing, or adding towing to your auto insurance policy, is also a good idea.

These are just a few of the things that you can plan ahead for to prevent costly dilemmas while your child is away. The more you can plan ahead, the less stress there will be when the items you packed and purchased are needed. 

About Me

picking a safe for your home

One of the best things I ever did was becoming an independent jewelry consultant. I get to collect beautiful pieces, entertain friends and family and earn a living while doing it. One thing that the company recommended that I do was to invest in a safe to store my inventory to protect it from potential burglars. I started learning about the different types of safes to find the one that would be best for what I needed it for. I have compiled everything that I learned about picking and choosing a safe for my home right here on my blog.
