Services we can offer to our customers
An auction valuation is an estimate, usually given as a range of prices, for example &190-300, that our specialists believe an item will make at an auction. This price is based on a range of factors such as past sale results for similar items, market trends and trade/collectors’ interest. Valuations of this type are free. There are number of ways to receive an auction valuation, such as our online valuation form, bringing your items into our offices in Birmingham or London, or attending one of our external valuation days.
It is up to the owner of a property to have proof of the worth of their items in the event of an insurance claim being made so this is a popular valuation to have. The sum given will be representative of retail prices in relevant markets, unless the item being valued is a period or antique piece. In this case, values are reflective of ‘like for like’ replacements bought at auction, from a dealer, at a market or similar. The description should be fully detailed to enable comparable items to be purchased in the event of a claim. Fellows charge a time taken fee per item for this valuation.
