These 5 Home Inventory Apps Can Help You Streamline Home Insurance Claims

By Tony Carrick | January 18th, 2022

If your home is burgled or struck by a natural disaster, the last thing you'll want to do is try to piece together which items are missing and where you bought them. These home inventory apps will help you keep track of your stuff and your paperwork—all in the palm of your hand.

Given that the average American home contains some 300,000 individual items, it is no wonder that most people have a hard time keeping track of their belongings. Many of the things packed into our homes are small-ticket items—kitchen tools, clothing, books, and the like—and can gradually be repurchased without too much financial hardship. Bigger-ticket belongings, however, are more difficult to replace, particularly if you cannot prove that you bought them to begin with.

If your family fell victim to a burglary, house fire, or natural disaster, would you have all the necessary product information you needed to file insurance claims on your iPad, flat-screen TV, or diamond necklace ? Luckily there are apps that allow you to keep a comprehensive home inventory of your stuff by storing receipts, serial numbers, item descriptions, and photos safely on the cloud. Many of these apps make compiling a list easy by collecting product information with a simple scan of the item’s barcode. Ahead, learn more about some of the top home inventory apps for organizing your belongings. 

This robust app is one of the most popular inventory manager apps for businesses. Its home version allows you to store up to 200 items for free, or you can pay $5 a month for unlimited storage. Sortly enables you to store photos and product info such as purchase date, serial number, value, and warranty. The app even allows you to create reminders about items you lent to friends. Taking an inventory of all the things you own can be a bit daunting, so Sortly includes a checklist feature that provides much-needed direction for getting started and allows you to scan barcodes to gather product info.

NAIC Home Inventory
If your primary motivation for making an inventory of your valuables is for insurance purposes, it makes a lot of sense to use a home inventory app created by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. This free app allows you to scan barcodes to access detailed info about a product, upload and export photos, and group valuables by category. It also has insurance-specific features, including tips for disaster preparation and filing homeowners insurance claims.



My Stuff

My Stuff’s interface may be pretty basic, but its intuitive design and low price of $4 per month make it a worthy choice. The app allows you to group items by rooms and collections, a feature that most other home inventory apps don’t offer. You can also share the app with up to six people, making it easy to create an inventory of everyone’s most treasured possessions, whether they’re wedding bands or PlayStation 5 consoles.
