Do I really need a Business Asset Inventory?
If you are like most business owners, chances are you have devoted your life to and have spent many years building and growing your business, but have you ever wondered what would happen if everything was gone in a flash?
Ask yourself these questions:
- What would you do if your business burned to the ground, was demolished by tornado, ravaged by flood or burglarized by thieves?
- Would you be able to list, from memory, all of the physical assets that were in your business?
- What about your customers…how would you continue to service them?
- How long would it take you to get back up and running again?
- Would your business be able to fully recover from these types of catastrophic events?
These are all very difficult questions that every business owner should ask themselves before disaster strikes.
All businesses should have a disaster contingency plan that details the steps that would be taken, and the lead time required, to get your business back up and running after a disaster.
A detailed business asset inventory should be part of this plan and can provide critical documentation that will keep your business prepared and protected. A comprehensive inventory will provide the documentation necessary to prove ownership and establish value of your business assets and will assist you in maximizing your reimbursement from an insurance claim and streamline the claim process.
The amount of your recovery from a claim and the speed at which you are reimbursed can help get you back up and running again and secure the future of your business.

“I have been an insurance agent in Illinois for over 30 years and I urge all of my clients to create and maintain a detailed inventory of their personal and business property. I highly recommend Spyglass Home Inventory service to all of my clients!”
“We just lost our house to a fire in April, and we can’t stress enough the importance of an inventory, which we didn’t have. It’s been 4 months, and we will be wrangling with our insurance company for a long time yet. They really don’t care about you. We’ve been living in our leaky pool house garage because they won’t pay living expenses until they settle.”
