Three things you need to know if you experience a burglary.

Coming home to find that your home has been broken into can be very traumatic. Aside from the loss of valuables from your home, it can also leave you feeling as if your personal safe space has been violated. However, the next steps that you take are vital. The Dialdirect Namola app, therefore, encourages you to follow these important guidelines:


Leave the home and call the police. One never knows who is still inside the premises and so for your own safety, it is best to leave the home as it is. Use the Dialdirect Namola app to request assistance and get the police to your house. You should also contact your home security company.

Talk to neighbours or message your local WhatsApp Group. This will serve two purposes: one being that they could have seen or heard something that will be useful to the police, and also to alert them to the criminal element in the area.

Contact your insurance company.  Having home insurance is the only way that a homeowner will be able to recover any financial loss that is incurred during a burglary. If the household items were insured, the insurance company will need to be notified of the burglary. It’s also a great idea to see what benefits your insurance company can offer you in your time of need. Dialdirect Insurance, for example, offers to cover the costs of locks or keys lost or damaged in the burglary.  


For that extra – peace-of-mind download the Dialdirect Namola app.
