We can help you with Insurance Valuations – we use an external registered valuer who is a member of the Institute of Registered Valuers (IRV).
Patiricia Law has been working with us for some time now and is an independent valuer.
She visits us once a month to carry out theses valuations.
She is next with us on Saturday 1st June.
If you would like to have your items valued for insurance we would request that you bring your items in to us sometime before her next due date – don’t worry your jewellery is insured with us whilst it is on the premises, and it always remains on the premises. If you have any supporting documentation for your items – it is always advisable to bring them with you, too.
Once Patricia has taken all the information, photographs to support the valuation and all other necessary details she needs to complete your valuation, she will draw up the documentation. You may collect your items at any time from this point on.
PLEASE NOTE IT CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS FOR THE FINAL PAPERWORK TO ARRIVE.
This is because all assessments must be verified and sometimes further research is required to find the right and best replacement value.
Fees are based on the FINAL TOTAL of the valuation. Total replacement value up to £5,000.00 will be charged at 2% + VAT, if the total replacement value comes to between £5,000.00 and £10,000.00 the charge is 1.5% + VAT, and all totals over £10,000.00 are charged at 1% + VAT.
WE CANNOT GIVE VERBAL VALUATIONS WHILST YOU WAIT.
Please be patient when waiting for your paperwork. Lead times will vary depending on how many valuations Patricia has to complete and how extensive they are. Some people just require a single piece to be listed on their insurance, others may have a whole collection of items needing evaluating.
We can also help you with your probate valuations too.
