Valuations for Insurance

Like any commodity over a period of time, values can change dramatically. It is especially important to be aware of the current value of your property so you can relax in the knowledge that you are fully insured in the unfortunate event of loss or damage.  It is advisable to check with your own insurer what exactly you are covered for and the terms surrounding this.  For example, certain items such as expensive jewellery and watches may not be covered against loss or damage outside of the property.

Most insurers will require formal evidence from a suitably qualified professional, (to degree level) in order to consider a claim.

Our inventories are set out in a clear and concise manner, free of complex jargon and duplicate copies are issued usually within seven days of the initial visit.  We strongly advise clients to photograph their prized possessions as this can greatly assist in the event of a claim or recovery if stolen.

We offer our professional formal written valuation service for insurance, probate, tax, asset management and family division purposes at attractive rates based on an hourly charge, (currently £125 initial fee and then £70 +VAT per hour thereafter ).  We are delighted to give individual quotes for the valuation of single articles such as a watch or a painting.

As values are constantly changing, we will contact you at agreed intervals to make any necessary updates.
