App & Website
If you have a serious collection (one that has value to third parties), you need a serious database. I am not talking about a pen & paper list, or even an excel spreadsheet; I am referring to the a real, special purpose built database program. If you have a valuable collection of antiquities, art, cars, coins, jewelry, and really anything of substantial value, then this is a solution for you. Collectrium was bought by Christies in 2015, and they have one of the best products on the market. You can catalogue what you have, document invoices, related expenses, insurance, and much more. The app and website has so much more to offer then simply an inventory system; this makes you a better collector. On the home page, you can access news and auction results based upon your collection. You can even see upcoming auction items for your collection, in the event you have the buying bug! So, this is when you crossover to collector from hoarder, and you know my motto, don't be a hoarder!
