When conducting an antique and personal property appraisal, Tony photographs, measures, and describes each item on site. Extensive research into the history and value of each item is conducted off-site. For larger appraisals, more than one visit may be required. Regardless of whether your appraisal is a single page, or 100 pages, each appraisal…
- is researched,
- describes each item in detail (including measurements),
- includes a colour photograph,
- states an appropriate value for the item,
- is dated,
- appears on the appraiser’s letterhead, and
- is signed by the appraiser.
Appraisals over 5 pages are bound.
All goods will be measured, photographed, described and researched. On-site work is carried out by Tony accompanied by an assistant who enters the information for each item directly into the appraisal document so that off-site work is minimised.
Your Appraisal documents are also maintained securely by us so they’re available in case of an emergency.
