I was curious as to what everyone uses to present their report, do you use binders or just something simple as staple the report.

Paper reports! Hmmm. An interesting concept. Haven’t used one of those things yet.

I am referring to an on site report print out. I don`t know what you are using now, but you must be using some sort of reporting system that uses paper?

Kurt,


Nope. Customer prints it. I load it to a server and send them a username and PW. Their paper, their ink, my savings in time and money.

I realize this may not work in places like Kentucky (sorry Erby) but in Houston it works great.

BTW, I do not believe in on-site reports. I need the extra time to carefully write the report within the mist of my reference library and my friends from NACHI. I get my reports to my clients on the same day. No complaints yet. I try to take lots of photo's however and I will concede that my notes are on paper.

John,


That doesnt work in this part of the country. The norm around here is to deliver a report, maybe not an on site report but some kind of report. By the way there are a lot of advatages to an on site report. I know it doesnt work for everyone but it works for me!!

I go to Office Depot and get some plastic cover display folders. They are less than a buck a piece. The first thing the client sees is a picture of the house through the front. The back cover has a place for a business card and several of the CPSC brochures that I give out. It has been praised numerous times.

Main Advantage of onsite report. Done, collect check, thank you very much.


I do have to excuse myself for a half hour or so and write my report though but it gives the client some time to make sure they have asked all of the questions they want to.


Ongoing support from me is free and lasts as long as they own the house.

We put ours in 3 ring binder on site. We put our logo on the front with the customers name and address.

That’s okay, John.


Maybe after you've done more than ten inspections, you'll run across some Texas clients that don't have internet access either.

John,


Speaking of Kentucky ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif) , I do provide on site reports upon request. However very few take me up on this. I use HomeGuage software and upload all of the reports by the end of that evening, the majority are impressed with the turnaround and the convenience of online viewing.

Brandon,


No one knows. It just sounds cool, so we all say it from time to time.

Erby,

Nice red and trout. They do look a little stiff though! I think that house behind you was number ten.
