You should contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report a claim. In general, the sooner you contact them, the sooner you could have your claim resolved.
When filing a renters insurance claim, make sure you have the following information on hand:
- Your policy number
- Date the incident occurred
- Details about the incident (i.e. police report)
It's also helpful if you have an inventory of your stolen/damaged items when you file a claim.
