TJM Consulting, LLC
Vandalism claims are handled much like burglary/theft claims. The insurance company will want to establish that property vandalized in fact belonged to the insured. To that end it is critical that all vandalsim be reported to police departments to record the event. Make sure you provide adequate detail and photos of the property damaged.
In the event that property damaged results in release of water or perhaps the ignition of a fire make sure all damages are remediated and the property is properly protected from further damage. It is always best to photograph all items that were damaged. Should you forget an item or items you can always update the police report at a later time. Just make sure you keep good records to show ownership of these items for insurance company purposes.
