Hi Marie,

There a many ways to bill your clients, but I give mine the following options after discussing the price:

1.  Pay half upon completion of the inventory session and the rest on delivery of the final product.

2.  Pay the entire bill upon completion of the inventory session.

3.  Pay a $100 (or more) deposit and the rest on delivery of the final product.

4  Depending on the client, pay the entire bill on delivery of the final product.

5. Depending on how I feel about the clients ability to pay, I offer monthly time payments. I don't offer this very often as it becomes a paperwork/billing nightmare. In fact, I don't even say anything about this option unless I decide to offer it while I'm doing their inventory. This option is really based on a "gut feeling" about them.

I always give them a hand written receipt (pre-printed pad or fill in the blanks on a company form) for any amount collected during the inventory session and computer generated final receipt when fully paid.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions as per his post, Fred is very knowledgeable and can assist you.

Please remember, if you offer any discounts, be sure they have an expiration date printed on the paper, or verbally if given that way or you will be stuck giving that discount till the end of time.

Hi Marie,
The Inventory Services business is actually thriving with new businesses opening every month.

Historically the message board is light on activity over the summer months as people are busy with their business as well as summer vacations.

Please fee free to contact me directly if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help you.

I am trying to decide on starting a business but this site seems to have no traffic and nothing new to report.  Is home inventory a thing of the past?  Also, I can not find specifics to explain how to bill a client.  thank you.
