Owning high priced items is a privilege and a responsibility. You work hard to make the money it takes to keep these high priced items in your home so it should only make sense that you would do your best to take care of them. Still, there are a number of people that end up taking improper care of big ticket items and those items end up being destroyed or simply devalued.
With any item that costs as much as one paycheck or more, you want to get yourself insurance. The need for insurance cannot be understated. The math is simple. If you own folding custom poker tables and they cost $1,000 a piece, you can have them insured under renters insurance or homeowners insurance, or individual insurance for a fraction of the cost. Then if something happens to it you can be certain to be reimbursed. There is nothing wrong with this plan of attack.
Additionally you should take care of the warranty. Many void their warranties due to improper care of their items. Make sure you take it in for inspection (in the case of jewelry and automobiles) and make sure you are clear about what the warranty states as far as what repairs you can have done with it. Following the warranty means that if something does go wrong you can have it fixed or replaced. Again, this is the smartest thing to do financially.
Owning high end items doesn’t have to feel like a hassle. You can be protected by being safe with the things you spend your money on. Get insured and start being careful today.
