Are You Ready For The Holiday Season?

Shopping Safety As We Move Into The Holiday Season

Black Friday is coming and that means we are in the middle of the Holiday Season. During the next 45 days, we will all be busy shopping, eating out and traveling. Crime rates tend to have a slight up-swing as spending is increased. This is due, in part, to shoppers carrying more cash and credit cards with them while shopping, shopping later than usual, and the relaxed, easy-going attitude that comes with this time of year.

Insurance specialists at Ludwig & Fawcett, Inc. serve to help you coordinate an insurance program that determines the best coverage options for your needs – for benefits and quality discounts that help you save.

Shopping Safety

  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
  • Lock your shopping bags in your trunk.
  • Never allow children to make unaccompanied trips to the restroom.
  • Never leave car doors unlocked or windows open.
  • Always park in lighted areas. Do NOT park in remote areas.
  • Shop with a friend.
  • Teach your child to go to a store clerk and ask for help in case your child is separated from you.
  • Avoid wearing expensive jewelry.
  • Keep receipts in your wallet or purse.
  • Avoid carrying large amounts of cash.
  • As you return to your car, make sure to keep your car key in your hand.

If you make expensive purchases like jewelry or guns, call our office as we may need to add these to your insurance policy. While many of our clients are in Mountain View, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, San Francisco, and San Jose, we serve all of Northern and Southern California!

We've been in business since 1952! In 1969, our agency's former President Bill Fawcett joined the Ludwig Insurance Agency in Palo Alto, CA. Then, in 1972, Bill became a partner at the agency and it was renamed Ludwig & Fawcett, Inc. In 1980, Bill's wife Judy left her longtime position working for an insurance company and joined Ludwig & Fawcett, followed in the years to come by their sons Brady and Dave. We have been at our current location in Mountain View since July 1981.

Bill, Judy, Brady, and Dave have all lived in Mountain View for over 30 years and have been active in local affairs. As a result, Ludwig & Fawcett and its employees are rooted in the local area and care deeply about the community.
