RE: HJB versus KC


Just wanted to share that I've heard from numerous people that they can't get an email reply or phone called returned at any point with KC Home Inventory.

If you are considering their product, I encourage you to try and make contact first to ensure that the company you do business with is going to support you after taking your money!

Hello,
As with any competing products you are always likely to see pros and cons of products.  I encourage you to choose the product you feel would best meet your needs and give it a try.

You can always return a product and try another if you don't feel it is right for you.

The Home Journal Business product comes with a 30 day money back guarantee so there is no risk to try the product.  In addition, the software was developed by Microsoft Certified Professionals to ensure a reliable and robust product to handle any size inventory.

I am confused... If I go to both sites I read negative feedback. I am trying to understand the main difference in the software. How is it one software will freeze in large inventories. Will either company work with Flip video?

As I read both companies are A+ rated. I think either company will benefit a person going into this market.


It seems like an ATT and Verizon kind of war.

I purchased KC Home Inventory before HJB but returned it because the screen image was just way too tiny. It has a 10" fixed screen size. Also when I attempted to do a print preview it came up so big that I was unable to see the bottom where the "next" button was, so I couldn't advance to the next page at all. I'm not going to lie though, it had its good points. Sadly that small screen size was the deal breaker for me as my vision is not very good.



You made a wise choice returning the KC kit and purchasing the HJB. I've been using the HJB software for many years and Customer service is exemplary! If you have any questions, Fred does an excellent job of answering them and the people on this board are a great asset.

Good luck in your business.

You're welcome.  No, I don't do appraisals which would take a lot of time.  If the client has some very valuable items then I suggest they get an appraisal but I keep it simple and just document everything as accurately as possible using information from the client.

Lucia,

Thanks for the info and advice. 

Do you appraise any of the property owner's valuables? 

I read some info sites about doing a home inventory business that said appraising the property was a needed skill.

I checked out alot of web sites belonging to home inventory businesses and I didn't see this included in the service.

Hi,
I've been doing this business since 2007 and have found it to be very profitable.  I was a bit slow to get started but once I worked on relationships with other professionals like insurance agents who give out my brochure things started to pick up steadily.

It does not cost very much to get started and I do suggest you get a startup kit to make the process easier.  I went with the HJB kit and have no regrets.  It is simple to follow and the software is easy with very nice report output.  I don't think you even need to advertise this business but just put your attention on other businesses that can provide your brochure and explain to their clients that a home inventory is important.  I also give gift cards to those who give out my brochures on a regular basis so they are still motivated to help me.

If you don't start with a good software package it just would take too much time to get the reporting together and don't see how you could make a profit.  Get the HJB package and avoid any problems since I've heard from others that some packages like KC have their software freeze up when doing large inventories.  I've done some that are huge and have not had any issues.

Good Luck!
Lucia

Hello Everyone,

I recently saw several ads in a small business magazine about starting a home inventory business.  This type of business sounds very interesting to me.  Especially since I'm wanting to do something that will allow me to leave my job and make a sufficient amount of money.

I started doing research on KC and HJB about their home inventory kits. 

I see that there are negative comments about the kits on both the KC forum and here.

Since the postings are so old here, wondering if some could post new opinions about their choice of purchasing the HJB kit.  

 I don't have much investment money for this business, so I want to make a good decision on which kit to go with. 

What are the differences or advantages between the HJB kit and KC?  

Is it really necessary to purchase a kit to start a home inventory business?

What are the pitfalls to starting the business and doing everything without purchasing a home inventory kit? 

What are the advantages with some who've started in this business by purchasing a kit versus doing it all through trial and error?

Also, if anyone can share if they're making good income from this, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for all replies.

Good luck in you businesses.
