Thanks Stephen and John for a top job on our end of financial year stocktake! Everything ran smoothly and the shop was looking pretty good after wards as well – you wouldn’t ever know you had been stocktaking it at all! Our system is now fully up to date allowing me to roll out more of the store onto auto ordering.

Had to have been the coldest night of winter but your staff performed well and just got on with it without complaint. Very impressed!

A huge thank you to Associated Stocktaking! I have been in business for many years and our inventory management had become a pressing issue – so we called Associated, liaised with Stephen and Bill and worked out a plan of action.

The result has been a platform for clearing out a lot of old stock and keeping on top of it ongoing.
Great result for me and I highly recommend anyone with an issue to contact these guys and see if they can produce a result for you like they have for me!

We have just purchased our first business here in Australia and completed our stocktake. Seriously, we expected to be hanging around until the wee hours of the morning so well done to your organizing Stephen and a big thankyou to your great team of tidy workers. We could not believe how quickly they got the job done – they made the whole thing seem incredibly easy and stress free.
The next stocktake we book will be with Associated Stocktaking!

Michael McKeown, Run Fa Oriental Supermarket


I am only too happy to confirm my appreciation for the thoroughness with which the urgent supermarket stocktake was carried out and, most importantly, the speed of production of the detailed professional stock take valuation, which was a critical element to a successful outcome of the sale of the supermarket that had to be carried out within an extremely tight timeframe.

Many thanks again and I look forward to working with you again.

We have been using Associated Stocktaking now for several years to help us with our end of financial year stocktakes and updating our Point of Sale System. We are delighted with their service. Stephen and Andy are customer focused and go the extra mile to ensure we get a result every time – despite issues from software companies and the occasional problem with our hardware! What was once a massive headache over several days is now over quickly and efficiently – I strongly recommend using Associated Stocktaking to anyone who needs some help with their inventory management.

I engaged the services of Associated Stocktaking to perform a stocktake in regional Western Australia on very short notice. Stephen and his staff were professional, efficient and very cost effective. We would have no hesitation in engaging Associated Stocktaking on future appointments.

I have been utilizing Associated Stocktaking since 2008 hiring both staff and equipment to perform our supermarket stock takes. I have tried using staff from other sources to assist us in the past, however have found them to be inefficient. We now only hire staff from Associated Stocktaking exclusively. Our experience with Associated has been excellent. Both their staff and team leaders have been honest, punctual and have not only increased the efficiency of our counts but also reduced our hours needed to complete the task , requiring minimal supervision. Steve and the team are a pleasure to work with and I certainly recommend them to anyone who is considering bringing in additional staff or need a knowledgeable company to help structure the task of stocktaking.

I recently sold my news agency and post office in April this year and I have to say I was a bit apprehensive about the stocktake. However when Stephen arrived with his staff we were very quickly put at ease. Stephen explained the process and quickly organized his staff who got on with the job in an extremely efficient and professional manner. Both myself and the purchasers of our business have every confidence in the valuation and I recommend Asociated Stocktaking to anyone who requires a stocktake. Thank you Stephen.

Best regards,

We are a medium sized supermarket located in Perth’s southern suburbs. We have using our regular staff to conduct our twice-yearly stocktakes for about seven years now. Of course to ensure a smooth process, we need to hire scanners. We have recently changed to hiring our scanners from Stocktaking WA and we could not be happier with the change. Stephen and his team have been fantastic and provide exceptional customer service. Stephen arranged for a technician to come on site before the stocktake to ensure the scanners were integrating properly with our back-office system and that we had no nasty surprises on the night. Our stocktake went off without a hitch and the scanners worked perfectly. Very happy customers!

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and your team for the stocktake work recently completed at our major warehouse facility in Perth.

As you know with stocktakes, particularly a 100% full inventory count it is a considerable task to say the least. But with your team of dedicated staff you were able to carry out the 100% count (including variance recounts), while we maintained full operational support to our bases during this period. Your team gave me the confidence to allow you to manage the count allowing me to concentrate on the day to day operations of the facility.

From the onset you mentioned your team were experienced counters and would be able to handle the job and carry it out to a high standard and level of accuracy. In this day and age, promises are rarely met, yet I was pleasantly surprised that your team not only lived up to your statement. But you and your team actually delivered a level of standard above my expectation and produced good results within our estimated time frames.

Please pass on my thanks and appreciation to your team, and for any future work your company will be number one on my list.

May I introduce myself, John Popamatheos, the Principal and Owner of JP Real Estate & Business Agents. I specialise in the sale of businesses, primarily manufacturing & wholesale, service, food & hospitality and distribution businesses and have been involved in the sale of businesses for over 25 years.

I am also the President of The Business Brokers Association of Western Australia (BBAWA).

In my capacity as a business broker and as the President of the BBAWA I can testify both professionally from my personal experience and from our membership that without question, Associated Stocktaking are the most reliable and professional stocktaking company in Western Australia.

I have used Associated Stocktaking for over 20 years and can say that without question and I will always highly recommend Associated Stocktaking to ensure a smooth transition at settlement to the Buyer’s and Seller’s satisfaction in any business transaction in which I am involved.

Most certainly using a professional and impartial stock taker is of the highest importance as it removes any doubt as to whether the buyer feels he paid too much or if the seller is concerned he did not get the true value for his stock.

Associated Stocktaking is a professional, ethical and longstanding respected firm that offers the best way to properly ascertain the proper value of the stock fairly to the benefit of all parties. They offer the highest standard of service and justifiably deserve my strongest support and highest recommendation.

Yours sincerely,

I have used Associated Stocktaking for all my business stocktaking requirements since 1998. Whether buying or selling a business, or performing end of financial year stock valuations Associated Stocktaking have provided a large efficient team who perform an accurate stocktake within a few hours! On every stocktake I been very satisfied with the stocktakers overall level of service and attention to detail.

Having shopped around I have found their prices very competitive.

I have no hesitation in recommending Associated Stocktaking for your business. When I purchase my next business there is no doubting who will be doing my stocktake!

John Lucano

Thank you for your assistance in conducting the stocktake for the abovementioned business.

I would also like to thank you for your professionalism in firstly conducting the stocktake and secondly negotiating a successful conclusion between vendor and purchaser. From the conversations I had with both parties, the situation could have become uncomfortable. Your levelheadedness and ability to arbitrate, I believe, offset potential problems.

In closing I wish to confirm I have no hesitation in recommending your services and would encourage you to invite any prospective clients you may have to contact me directly for any testimonial.

Thank you very much for the Final Stock Report for (business name remains confidential) Newsagency & Lotteries Centre conducted on Saturday, xxth September 2010.

I just wanted to send you a note of thanks and appreciation of how well you and your staff handled what was a very trying and stressful experience for all parties.

As you will already know that this final part of the sale of any business can bring up issues that needs to be dealt with diplomacy and fair for all and I congratulate you and Adam on how well your procedures worked and explained to both parties to ensure that a true count of stock is taken and as accurately and humanly possible.

I found the initial contact with Associated Stocktaking WA and follow-up calls very reassuring and extremely professional.

During the day / evening of the stocktake your supervisor, Adam, and his staff were absolutely wonderful and reassuring.

I can go on and on about how satisfied and pleased both Richard and I was with the service you provided us with on the day but it would take you at least 2 days to read through it all.

Please pass on my thanks to all at Associated Stocktaking and should we need your services again or know of people requiring stocktaking services we will not hesitate to pass on your contact details to them.

All the very best with kind regards.

Richard and Lorraine Lewis
Former Newsagents


Thank you for your great efforts in conducting a stock take at the (business name remains confidential) Motel recently.

I would especially like to thank your team comprising of Adam and Ben and ask you to convey to them that it was a professional job well done.

Thank you for the extremely professional and accurate stocktake performed at my business, Zinns Liquor on the 28th of July 2014.

The representatives of Coles and myself were very happy with the accuracy of the count after numerous checks and that gave both parties the confidence to sign off on the stock valuation then and there!

I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who is looking for any stocktaking service, and will certainly be calling upon Associated Stocktaking should I have any requirements for stocktaking or inventory services in the future.

Yours,
Gary Zinnecker


Just a short note to sincerely thank you for an extraordinary job on Monday.

The appointed time for the stocktake was 7.00am. I arrived at 7.00am and was more than impressed to find on my arrival that you had three staff plus yourselves already counting.

Your estimate to complete a tavern stocktake of $140,000 of 4 hours maximum was halved due to two things.

1) Your efficiency in preparation and implementation of the stoctake

2) The sellers fastidious and exact stock record keeping and systems.

Too often we as humans ignore a job well done. It’s just easier to move on to the next.

The purpose of this note is not to record a job well done but a job extraordinarily well done.

I always mention to my clients that a stocktake is best completed by an external professional rather than in-house. My points in convincing clients are

1) The buyer will inevitably miss stock that is out of date or unsaleable.

2) The Seller will miss stock that a professional would not.

3) The external professional stocktaker is the ultimate arbiter and avoids unpleasant and costly disagreements.

In this instance the intention was to do an in-house stocktake. Both parties now confirm that your cost was far more effective than an in-house stocktake. I agree.

Thanks again for a very professional and cost effective effort.

Towards the end of May 2014 I approached Mr Stephen Moore of Associated Stocktaking in order to ask for his help with an urgent job taking stock in an insolvent supermarket. As Liquidator of the company I was engaged in negotiations to sell the assets of the business, including the stock in the shop, and before a purchase price could be fixed the value of the stock had to be ascertained.

Twenty four hours after my first contact with Mr Moore the stocktake was all but complete.

I appreciated the efficiency, friendliness and professionalism Mr Moore brought to all his dealings with me and my staff.

I would without hesitation recommend Mr Moore and his company.

Yours faithfully

Since Associated Stocktaking started servicing our venue, we have fixed all the non-scanning barcodes and products which scanned incorrectly, and we have accurate stock on hand figures! Now we have meaningful variance reports and have been able to reduce our stock levels significantly. Associated Stocktaking have had a massive positive impact on our business since they replaced the previous stocktaking company! The difference is incredible
