List all of your equipment and
Record the manufactures details, which
company supplied the equipment, what the
model and serial numbers are, the date it was
installed and any other relevant details.
This is essential information to have,
before you can do any service work or repairs to an
equipment item, you need to know what parts are required.
You can not order parts unless you know who from, and
what details to give the supplier so that they can
provide the correct service parts. It is also important
if there are any warranty claims.
If you have a break down, help over the
phone is almost impossible with out this information. So
having an inventory provides all of this vital
information in one location, it also saves valuable time
in an emergency situation.
These details are also important for your
insurers, for practice valuation purposes, for your
accountant for depreciation purposes and for long term
equipment replacement planning.
