Insurance appraisals need professional standards

Sterling Silver flatware

Our appraisals are certified to the highest professional and federal standard (Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice), and follow the best professional practices of the ISA (International Society of Appraisers). These are among the highest standards in the industry. We provide evidence based valuation of replacement cost, inventories, and photography for you and your insurer.

Even the most comprehensive policy does no good if the replacement cost of the property has not been determined. Basic home-owner’s policies may not properly address the value of the items you treasure. If a claim must be made, your insurance company may require proof of value be established prior to the damage or loss. While it may be possible to appraise items after they have sustained damage or even been destroyed, there is never a clearer picture of your items value than while it is still whole. When you itemize your collection with a professional appraisal, there is peace of mind that nothing will be overlooked or undervalued.

We are qualified and experienced in providing appraisals to properly insure your art collection or treasured collectables. If you have modern designer furnishings or a curated mid-century home filled with period Eames chairs we will research the appropriate markets to value your items. We are adept at valuation of business equipment that may be in your home or large scale office complex. We generally can do most residential content.
