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.

Top Reasons You Need a Detailed Property Inventory

Fire Damage

Each year fire damages more than 384,000 homes in America. Don’t get caught without an inventory.

Insurance Documentation

You buy insurance to protect your assets; doesn’t it make sense to have a documented inventory to support a claim?

Moving and Storage

Before hiring a moving company or placing property in storage, make sure you have a complete inventory record.

Theft or Loss

According to FBI statistics, a burglary occurs every 10 seconds. That’s over 2,000,000 homes annually.

Estate Planning

A detailed inventory can provide your executor with guidance on how to distribute your assets and property.

Prenuptial Agreements

A detailed inventory of pre-marital assets can help define non-marital property and limit future uncertainties.

Natural Disaster

Tornados, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters account for $43B in damage every year.

Divorce or Separation

A well-documented inventory of personal assets can streamline valuation and distribution of marital property.

Business Valuations

Creating an inventory of tangible business assets can assist in determining the valuation of a 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!”

Scott R.Insurance Agent

“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.”
