Written valuations for probate and other purposes are undertaken for a competitive fee and in the strictest of confidence. Valuations can range from a simple block figure to individual examination and description of pieces to ensure that legal obligations are fulfilled.

Digital photograph records can also be prepared in addition to the written valuation by arrangement.

Free Appraisals

We are always pleased to advise our clients to potential auction entries. This service is free of charge and without obligation. Items may be brought to the auction rooms at any time Monday to Friday 10am – 5pm, but we do advise making an appointment to ensure the correct specialist valuer is available. Larger items can be appraised in your home by appointment (subject to our discretion) or from photographs which can be either posted or emailed to us.

Executor Services

Dealing with a deceased estate and the contents of a property can be both difficult and time consuming. We are always pleased to offer sympathetic advice, prepare the necessary valuations and arrange delivery and the sale of any items suitable for auction. Whilst we do not offer a house clearance service, we are able to recommend other local businesses who may be able to assist with this service.
