There is a surge of awareness from ancillary industries as our industry grows. Insurance agents encourage policyholders to have a home or business inventory. Estate attorneys refer inventory professionals to their executor clients to complete the emotional estate inventory task. CPAs and financial planners recommend an inventory to homeowners and business owners to know the value of their assets.
Our approach to preparing you for your new business is not the typical canned training. Mentoring and sharing our experiences is much preferred. Rather than just teach you how to do an inventory; we teach you the industry. Topics we’ll discuss are business development, marketing strategies, pricing your service – and anything else you need to develop your business. All this through one-on-one support.

An Opportunity for Success
After extensive research of the inventory industry over the past three years, I've realized that having professionally experienced and knowledgeable people like Cindy and Mike as mentors can mean nothing more than an opportunity for success. As an Accountant and Tax Preparer, people relied on my expertise, rather than just their own knowledge. I will do the same.
They Keep Us In A Position To Be Leaders In The Industry
I really appreciate how Cindy and Mike stay on top of the latest trends and industry standards, always keeping us up front and in a position to be leaders in the industry. This attention to detail regarding the industry, and the mentoring they provide specific to my inventory business, make me feel very comfortable about my decision to become a licensee.
I Have Learned So Much From Them
I considered starting a business for a couple years. When I almost had a house fire due to a surge protector that caught fire, I knew exactly what my new company would be! I spoke to many friends who had a fire or knew of people who did, and all had the same response: 'I wish I had an inventory before the fire!' I am a co-publisher of a 10,000 subscription newspaper and also work full time for an accounting firm. My days are full, so I was searching for a franchise or business opportunity that would help me start and grow my home inventory business. Finding Nationwide Inventory Professionals was the answer! Why reinvent the wheel when someone else is already out there doing it. They have the process, business documents, and marketing materials already created. Why try to learn it on your own? The Hartmans are a wealth of information and I have learned so much from them in a very short time.
Absolutely No Comparison – Brings Your Business to a Professional Level!
We purchased the inventory business package through Nationwide Inventory Professionals for many reasons — primarily, the quality of the product. We researched the business idea and several other options that we found available online, as well as considering starting on our own. After careful consideration, we determined that there is absolutely no comparison between the Nationwide Inventory Professionals Business Package and Licensing Agreement and the other packages available to start a professional personal property inventory business. It became clear that starting on our own, without this assistance, would only cost us much more money in the long run. We absolutely believe that they have developed a system that brings your personal property inventory business to the professional level that it needs to be successful, as well as provide clients with the level of service they deserve.
I Did My Due Diligence; the Decision Was a No-brainer
Following 25 years as a multi-line insurance agent, I was looking for a new opportunity to utilize my experience working with personal lines clients and small business owners. I realized over the years that very few clients were prepared to deal with their insurance company following a serious fire, storm, or burglary. A complementary business that would provide a service of documenting the contents of a home or business seemed like a natural offshoot of my insurance work. Knowing that this type of a business likely already existed, I did my due diligence. After investigating various business opportunities, I quickly came to the conclusion that the Nationwide Inventory Professionals business package was by far the best overall. The founders developed the business exactly as I would have done myself, even though they didn’t have an insurance background. I recognized early on that it would have taken me years of solid work employing trial-and-error methods to get to the same point where they are right now. The decision was a no-brainer for me. Why reinvent the wheel? Being a Licensee is a distinct advantage that I appreciate more as I gain my own maturity in the business. They pay attention to the aspects of the business that I'm not good at, but understand the importance of maintaining. These folks are the real deal.
