No Matter What Happens, You Have Access to a List of All Your Belongings
“Some people don’t see the value in a personal property inventory, yet those same people have homeowner’s insurance, locks on their doors, and sometimes home alarm systems. An inventory of your belongings provides a different kind of peace of mind. You know that no matter what happens, you have access to a list of all the contents in your home or business.
After any loss situation, we know that just one quick phone call will get us a copy of our data, so we can begin our police report or insurance claim. In any type of loss situation, Hartman Inventory can’t remove the emotional part of the trauma, but their service can lessen the pain of not recovering.”

A Vital Part of Being Protected
“My wife and I feel a lot safer knowing that we have Mike and Cindy Hartman continuing to update our belongings through photos as well as a written listed inventory. Their inventory process is very professional and very thorough. It is a vital part of making sure your assets are protected in case of an unforeseen circumstance. We are very glad we have our home inventoried.”
~ Geoff Bradley, Owner of Bradley Financial
Did I recoup everything? NO!
“I’ve had a home break-in and have been involved in a fire. Did I recoup everything? NO! I didn’t have an inventory of my belongings, couldn’t remember, and didn’t have a list to refer to. Now that Hartman Inventory conducted an inventory of my home, I have peace of mind!”

Wish I Had Invested in Their Service Sooner
“I had been wanting to put together a list of all of our equipment and never had time. Mike and Cindy put together an inventory of all our company assets. This included not only the name of the manufacturer plus serial and model numbers of our electronics and equipment, but photos of everything, as well! If I waited until I had time, I’d still be waiting. Just wish I had invested in their service sooner, before someone helped themselves to stuff in my storage barn!”
~ Debbie Moore, Owner of Diamond Collision
Hartman Inventory is a True Small Business Success Story
“I am not sure that you can “love” a company, but if you can, then I love Hartman Inventory! I have been working with Cindy and Mike for many years. I was extremely excited when I found their service because I had been wanting to do an inventory of both my house and small business. It was something I needed to do, just never made a big enough commitment to get it done on my own. Hartman Inventory came in and made the process painless. I have worked a lifetime to have a nice home and a great business, I would be devastated if something happened and I did not have the contents documented. Several years ago I did have a house fire, and while it was only about $30,000 in damage, it was wonderful to know, if I had lost any items, it was easy to prove what it was.
From a business standpoint, all businesses should make an inventory a part of their disaster / continuation plan. Again, Cindy and Mike make it easy and their attention to detail is incredible. I love the fact Hartman Inventory is a true small business success story. They created something wonderful from the ground up. Best of all, Mike and Cindy are wonderful people that you will be honored to work with as you complete your inventory.”
~ Tom Jackson, CEO of Jackson Systems
It’s a Great Feeling
“During a review of my insurance policies, my insurance agent suggested we inventory all the contents of our home and my Dermatology Practice. Since my staff and I are busy with patients every day, I knew we would never get this task completed. Giving this some thought, it made me realize how many items are not on a depreciation schedule, which means I don’t have a comprehensive list of the business assets. Not remembering many items, it would be a large financial blow to have to replace it all if I had a loss.
I chose to hire Hartman Inventory to complete both inventories, and am very impressed with their professional service. It’s a great feeling to know you have a list and photos in case you need to file an insurance claim. Being able to update my information as I purchase new items makes this even more valuable!”

Peace of Mind – It’s Priceless!
While working with Cindy and Mike Hartman on the development and branding of their websites, I received a worrisome annual electrical inspection on our home. For years we’ve battled water due to the positioning of our home at the bottom of a large slope. Keeping a watchful eye on the sump pumps and making sure things were off the floor in the garage were one thing, but electrical? How could I monitor what was happening in the walls? How much damage would be done by the time a smoke detector went off? These concerns and many others kept me on edge for months.
To make matters worse, the worry was compounded when we had a short in our wall oven that started a fire. While it was contained to the inside of the oven only, it brought to mind images of what could happen.
Then, Cindy and Mike suggested we get a home inventory. The process was painless — at least for us — and we were stunned to see just how much we really possessed!
When the Hartmans drove off after completing the inventory, I breathed a deep sigh of relief. I felt at peace for the first time since purchasing our home. I knew that if anything did happen to the house, we had documentation and we could — and would — recover.
The Hartmans don’t sell home and business inventories, they sell peace of mind! And for me, that’s priceless!”

The Inventory Was My Pillar of Strength
“My wife and I started a business and house in l981 by moving out of two nice homes and into a 75 year old barn. Over the years of cleaning, building and personalizing such an unusual building, we fought to get insurance to cover our belongings and the facility.
Now an even more dangerous situation was in front of me. Could we survive the turmoil, stress and fight ahead of us? My calm came from knowledge that we had insurance and were still alive. I had no reason to think, that the most challenging time of our lives was ahead of us.

They Earned My Trust, Loyalty, and Gratitude
“I am such a passionate advocate of Hartman Inventory that I had an inventory of my house TWICE! WHY? Because life has a way of changing unexpectedly. I bought my home 3 years ago and decided that it was important to know what I owned & if I was properly insured. The Hartman’s came to my home and did a wonderful job of counting & photographing the contents of my home and asking lots of great questions. They were professional, thorough and even made me think of things that I had long forgotten about in the move. 2 years later, my son and my mother came to live with me, and with them came a whole new household of belongings. My very first call was to the Hartman’s to let them know that my original inventory needed updating.
In my mind, it doesn’t make sense not to have an inventory. The trauma of losing your home and its contents can be emotionally and financially devastating. Insurance alone is not enough. Your agent can only help you sufficiently and quickly if you can provide a list of your belongings and their dollar value. The time to think about that kind of list is NOT when you are pumping out water from your flooded basement or sifting through the rubble left from a tornado or fire.
This is not about fear or unnecessary worry; for the same reasons that we lock our homes when we leave, it is about taking control of your life and being responsible homeowners. In times of strife, wouldn’t you want to recover your losses as quickly as possible? I cannot think of a better investment for your peace of mind than a full inventory of your home or office.
Besides disasters, there are other reasons to have an inventory compiled by Hartman Inventory – estate and financal planning, when moving contents to a new residence or into storage, prenuptial agreements and divorce settlements.
Hartman Inventory has earned my trust, loyalty and gratitude by providing peace of mind and a professional service to compliment any insurance policy. They have my highest recommendation and I urge all property owners – commercial and personal – to have them take care of you.”
~ Michele Urban, Homeowner
Service in a Respectful, Professional Manner
“What a wonderful service! After having our home and business inventory done, I felt great about spending the money, because I felt like I did something important for my family. It is a comfort knowing that if something happens, I can focus my energy on my family, and not on trying to remember what we owned. When there is an emergency, material items are not a priority. Trying to recount them would not be possible for me.
I am grateful that I will be able access a complete list of my belongings, should the need arise. Thank you for providing your service in such a respectful, professional manner.”

I Regularly Refer Them
“Hartman Inventory methodically and completely inventoried my home and business. Their process efficiently and easily helps procrastinators get an inventory off their ‘To Do’ list and keep it up-to-date annually. Cindy and Mike were great fun to work with, so I regularly refer them.
Hartman Inventory helped a successor trustee client inventory and value his parents’ assets for State Inheritance Tax purposes. The job was too big for him and freed his time to do other important estate work.
No one knows just how important an inventory is until disaster strikes. A fire due to faulty wiring caused another client to wish they had used Hartman Inventory. This is because of the mess they had to overcome to recover from their insurance company and get their business back up and running.”
~ Jennifer Ruby, Attorney-Owner of Ruby Law
Extremely Satisfied With the Thoroughness
“After seeing numerous television stories about disasters, and listening to a friend tell of her home being burglarized, I am so grateful the Hartmans inventoried my home. I now have peace of mind when I see or hear tragic stories such as these.
As a CPA, I see a real value in what Cindy and Mike bring both to the individual home owner and to the business owner. As a CPA, I am very detail oriented and I was extremely satisfied with the thoroughness of the inventory. They have earned my trust, loyalty and gratitude by providing peace of mind and a professional service to compliment any insurance policy.”
~ Susie Keaton, CPA/Senior Manager of Somerset CPAs
Efficient and Fairly Priced
“I spent years advocating what a great idea an inventory of our assets would be. Never having experienced a disaster, the idea always got shoved down the priority list. I’m lucky that to date I still haven’t had a disaster, but I now have an inventory of my business and my home done by Hartman Inventory. Their process was very efficient and fairly priced and the final product was very professional. Mike and Cindy were a pleasure to work with and I would certainly recommend their service.”
