It is important to have your items accurately valued to reflect current market trends and fashion, to ensure the premium you pay is correct. We can provide an accurate detailed record of your objects together with a realistic valuation.
Valuations are presented as a comprehensive bound document, with a full colour photographic inventory of your objects, and description details to aid recovery or replacement following a loss. The digital report and photographs are held on our secure server.
Keeping fees at a competitive level has always been an important factor for us, and having listened to our clients concerns regarding affordability, we offer a free of charge and without obligation quotation for your insurance valuation.
We have a fixed price for Insurance Valuations. Our transparent fees are charged at an hourly or daily rate, based on the time spent at the property.
