You should get a signed and verified listing of the inventory. You should keep a log of all items removed and sold. You should indicate amount received, to whom the property was mailed, and when. If the company goes bankrupt and they owe you money, you become a creditor. As far as loss by theft, you should ask the company to insure the inventory and the goods and to hold you harmless for any loss beyond your control.


Also make sure you ship with the requirement goods must be signed for. Make sure every shipment is insured to full value.
