Invent Help Review from Harwhich, Massachusetts

David of Harwhich, MA My partner and I did some research then investigated InventHelp and decided to go with them. The rep was a sweetheart to work with. She answered the questions that we had and if she didn't have the answers, she would find them for us. Every time we called her and she was out, she'd call right back too and it's been good. We've had a great experience with InventHelp. It cost more money than I thought it was going to, but we've got everything up and running. It's a window box for cats where they go in and it's like a little condo for them. We've already got the video that they sent us of the cat box and we're waiting on the on the prototype now. We got this guy that's working and the next step is to go to all these trade shows, and I'm excited to get somebody that's interested in it and to go forward. We've been working on this project for a couple of years already and we'd like to really start making some money if we could. But everything seems to work fine with InventHelp and we had no problems. Additionally, we have another invention that we're going to be working on with InventHelp in the near future.

Invent Help Review from Pico Rivera, CA

Xavier of Pico Rivera, CA I've been accessing InventHelp’s website for the last 15 years and my experience with them has been great so far. I submitted my invention in November last year and it has been established and accepted. The draft has been adopted and the information has been sent out to various manufacturers. They gave me an account number to call. They also called me and let me know the process. They sent me a letter on all the processes and how far the processes were gonna take. Toni, my rep, also called all the prospective investors. What's neat about it was when you send your information to the lawyers, they'll tell you more or less if it's going to become looked at, acceptable, and out in the market. If it's not, they tell you. So it's not like you're spending your bills or wasting your money. I took too long to forward my invention. I wish I did it earlier. If my friends ask about InventHelp, I would tell them to do their research and make sure they go to the correct organization. Also, not to go ahead and do it on their own because it takes a lot of time. I tried to go to the patent company and they give you so much information. You also gotta go visiting and see the manufacturer development. It took too much of my time and I don't have that. Also, I'm not a rich man to be able to do that. And that's what InventHelp does. They go ahead and they do all that research for you because they've been at it for the last 30 years.

Invent Help Review from Scranton, Pennsylvania

Jerry of Scranton, PA I've been working with InventHelp since 2009. We haven't licensed anything from them at this point, and it's generally because the manufacturing falls out of our expertise. But they're always good to deal with when we are looking at particular products. They're one of the few companies we will deal with that are offering patents and products. They're easy and pleasurable to deal with, and they respect our decisions when we decide not to move forward with a project. Unlike a lot of other companies. There's one company, I wont even take their phone calls anymore because if we say were not interested, they're just trying to sell us. We have to like the product and feel that we can sell the product or else it doesn't do any good for anybody.

Invent Help Review from Bayside, New York

Shahid of Bayside, NY I showed Bernie what my invention was. He liked and understood what I was trying to explain to him, so we went ahead. He helped me patent it which took between seven months to a year. I got a patent and now, I'm waiting for somebody to buy it from me so I can make the money. I had a very good experience with InventHelp. They have been trying to get my product out there and all of them have been great and very helpful.

Invent Help Review from Shawnee Mission, Kansas

Thomas G. of Shawnee Mission, KS I have been a consumer for more than 60 years! I have been in sales for more than 35 years. I tend to intimidate insecure, shady so call professionals. I don't do this in a mean-spirited manner, and certainly without disrespectful language. I simply interview my prospected professional before I hire them. If I know more than they do about the subject matter they do not get my business! If I ask them to verify or qualify an answer to my questions and they become defensive or evasive, I pursue the questioning until I am satisfied that they are either insecure, nervous, shady, a fake, or a liar. If they are just insecure and nervous; in my judgment and not a liar I try to establish a common portal of communication so that we can accomplish the mission at hand if possible. If they are shady, a fake, or a liar; I expose them with their own words with undisputable methods, and politely excuse myself from their presences. I am Please to say that so far InventHelp has passed my initial interview and I have contracted with InventHelp and their team to bring my invention legally and profitable to fruition! I am very pleased as the mission at hand continues. There were a few glitches and InventHelp and their team quickly help me to understand how the glitches will be rectified. They have been punctual, and I am well pleased so far.

Invent Help Review from New York, New York

Danny of New York, NY I enjoyed my experience with InventHelp very much. Nice bunch of people. The rep I dealt with, Robert, was on point, lets me know what I was doing and made me feel comfortable. Held my hands through the whole thing and I didn't feel like I'm just going to be ripped off. I've been to a couple of other invent companies and you'd never know what they're saying is true. I took the chance with him and with the company because he did a good job in explaining everything and showing me what's going to happen. I'm completely satisfied and prepared.

Invent Help Review from Universal City, Texas

Eugene of Universal City, TX I keep in touch with my initial InventHelp representative from South Carolina to inform him of what's going on and he’s been highly supportive of my invention. He’s highly knowledgeable on the steps and the procedures of what goes on in an invention. So far, their service has been excellent because they’ve been doing everything I expected them to do and they’re still working hard to try to get my invention discovered. Right after I got my patent and my patent number, I contacted them and gave them everything that they needed to know so they can put more emphasis on the patent when it goes to different companies. They have helped a tremendous deal. InventHelp is 100% legit and I’ll definitely use them again.

Invent Help Review from Bridgewater, Massachusetts

Walter of Bridgewater, MA I wanted a company specifically that had an interest in the success of my invention and InventHelp has a 20% interest. It’s in their best interest trying to find if my invention is that good. They get a percentage of the royalties or sale. Basically, if they have something to lose, they also have something to gain. The only thing that I have any misgivings about is Lou who’s down in Roswell. I first met him in December of last year. He signed me up and I paid and I’ve called him several times. He never returns my call. The other thing is that InventHelp uses a number of attorneys in different locations to do different things. I had some really good interaction with the attorneys in Kaufhold & Dix. They get right back to the client and tell you you’ve got your patent, which is a nice touch, a little personal. The overall experience with InventHelp so far is good. I’ve had to make some corrections though to some of the paperwork that they sent out to the manufacturers. Their art department made a couple of mistakes in showing the invention and they made a change and to the best of my knowledge, 25 companies have been sent information regarding the invention and I’m waiting for InventHelp to call me back and let me know if there’s any success with the invention. I don’t know how long it’s going to take, but hopefully, it won’t be too long because it’s been eight months since I first contacted InventHelp. I contacted them on December 29th of last year and here it is, August 30th of this year. So, it’s been eight months. Although I met on the phone a girl by the name of Mara, I don’t know what her last name is, but she actually follows. If I call her and answer a question about my invention, she actually returns my call, which is a good thing because I am paying a monthly fee to them for their services and I gave them several thousand dollars upfront. So, I have money and time invested in this invention and she does get back to me. I trust InventHelp. They did all the research and make sure there wasn’t anything else there that even resembles my invention. There isn’t another invention out there like mine that has the same dimensions or anything else about the invention. I know there’s no competition. I don’t understand why it takes so long to get the process. Maybe these companies take time to research the invention.

Invent Help - Stolen idea but didnt get it right by far!!

We do not believe that this respondent is an InventHelp client. This post is completely false and ridiculous. We have been in business for over 34 years, helping inventors submit their ideas to industry. We do not steal inventions. In fact, any perspective client of InventHelp, would have signed a Confidentiality and Non-Use Agreement with us which states in part “…the idea, invention, or product you are disclosing…shall not be used, sold, assigned or disclosed to any other person, organization or corporation without your permission.”

let me help get the right product out to consumers

Hello i just want to let everyone know that invent help did not HELP ME..THEY STOLE MY IDEA. I sent in a blueprint of how my invention, Heel Saver, would look like.

They never got back with me on my idea. So I was just searching on Amazon one day and low and behold, there was the product called Heel Saver. What they developed looks horrible. It looked nothing like my blue print.

What should I do about this.

Should i be able to make another blue print and send it to myself for the post mark. And will I have to change the name of my invention??

I believe they did the same to me. I brought in a design to one of their Seattle offices for a tool I had designed and named.

The money they wanted to work with me was too high at the time. So I let it go.

About a year later I saw the EXACT same tool , ( I am a carpenter and knew what tools were on the market) hanging in Home Depot. I believe they, or one of their employees , ripped me off.

Invent Help's reply to:

Invent Help - Failed service

We are responding to this post. The respondent contracted with InventHelp for the first stage of our services, the preparation of a Basic Information Package (BIP) report on her invention. The BIP assembles basic information about an invention, idea, concept or new product and the history of its development in a report format. In addition, a Preliminary Patentability Search and Opinion (PPSO) was conducted for the idea by a patent law firm to which InventHelp refers its clients’ patent work. The total cost of these services was $925. The respondent however, did not pay for the services he received and still owes $470.

Nevertheless, we reached out to the respondent in an effort to address his concerns. While we do not agree with the respondent’s comments, simply in good faith, we worked together and arrived at a mutually agreed upon resolution.

Invent Help Customer Review from Washington, DC

Darryl of Washington, DC I thought I had something that the public would like to see that's why I went to InventHelp. And also it would be some kind of an investment. I had great help and support from them. I've been talking with my buddy, Mr. ** and we went over the patents with the product and a lot of information that they gave about it. The service that he's provided, I feel is putting me in the right direction to go and proceed to make a good product for the public. InventHelp helps people with the dreams to become a reality and the steps that they help you with to create your reality is something I'm really looking forward to.

Invent Help Review from Harrisville, Rhode Island

Dana of Harrisville, RI Their reps were very professional and thorough. They work you through a process that is very intricate and unfamiliar. Then they charter you through a course that you can do it on your own. But by the time you're done, you're spending a lot more money than you probably have to. They provide lawyers, patent searches, patent lawyers, and then you call them and if you have to leave a message, they call you back. They also follow up with your leads. I've been working with them for four years and it's been a great experience. It's an invention help made easy.
