Relevant associations:

http://www.theaiic.co.uk/ When instructing an Inventory company make sure they are truely independent and look for membership of the Association Of Independent Inventory Clerks, it means that they are trained professionals.  As a result their reports will stand up in a court because they are not offering services such as cleaning or maintenance making their reports bias and unfair.
