Our Professional Valuation Services are conducted on the premises. Providing highly detailed professional appraisals for all types of Estate Jewellery, Modern Jewellery & Antique Silverware, including appraisals for probate purposes & family division. The completed Valuation for Insurance document is accepted by all leading Insurance Companies in the UK.
The advantages for our clients when meeting us here in Hereford, is knowing their precious, sentimental items of jewellery & silver are inspected & checked for faults & problems prior to being valued. This helps negate any future problems which may have potential to arise.
Our clients are welcomed & provided with a personal ‘One to One’ consultation with Andrew to discuss the options available prior to completing the final Valuation. All items are inspected, listed & photographed using an established Taking in Procedure, the details are recorded & stored securely whilst on the premises & a numbered receipt is completed for each client. The items are insured by a specialised Insurance Policy to ensure the safe keeping of all pieces whilst in our possession.
Clients are requested to bring old receipts & other relevant documents with them after making an appointment so we can verify the items & check for any ambiguities. Most Insurance policies state that any one item of jewellery or silverware must be specified if over a certain threshold value. Please ascertain the value of the Specified Limit on any one piece on the Insurance Policy, (usually listed under Jewellery & Valuables), so we can advise you accordingly.
We look forward to meeting you in person to discuss your Valuation requirements.
