Cleveland Ohio Native Opens Home Inventory Business
Wagner’s Inventory Services LLC offers asset inventory services to Northeast Ohio residents and business owners.
Gina Wagner had been thinking about starting her own business for several years, but faced one big hurdle – figuring out what she wanted to do. It hadn’t been easy, and was something she had been considering for years. After hearing about the home inventory industry, her life experiences encouraged her to start her to enter the asset inventory service industry in Northeast Ohio.
Once she learned of this niche, Gina spent more than two years talking to people who experienced a disaster. She also verified the need for this service through discussions with insurance agents. Using these conversations for her own education, she learned of the long, daunting process that is normally required to file an insurance claim. While still giving a home inventory service some thought, she almost had a house fire from a surge protector that caught fire. This was her defining moment for the type of business she wanted to own.
The flexibility of the inventory industry fits well into her busy lifestyle, enabling her to continue her full-time employment with an accounting firm, and also remain as a co-publisher of a 10,000 subscription newspaper in Brooklyn, Ohio. She realized that she would benefit greatly if she had help during the start-up as well as the growth stages of her new business. Wagner’s search led her to Nationwide Inventory Professionals.
Gina stated, “Why reinvent the wheel when someone else is already out there doing it, and doing it much better than trying to learn it on your own. They are a wealth of information and I can learn so much from them. They will help me provide a better service to the client, which is the ultimate goal for Wagner’s Inventory Services.”
In addition to disaster preparedness, there are many other life events that require an inventory of one’s belongings, such as estate settlement, financial planning, division of assets/divorce, pre-nuptial agreements, and business asset tracking. Gina realized the value of home owners and business owners to have documents of what they own.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Gina also lived in Florida and Wisconsin. Returning to Ohio, she now resides on the border between Cleveland and Brooklyn. Wagner has an Associate Degree as a Computer Programmer / Systems Analyst. To serve her creative side, she also has certifications in Floral Design and Graphic Design. Gina is currently working towards her certification as a Certified Inventory Professional (CIS) through the National Inventory Certification Association.
