Our antique valuation process
We examine and calculate the worth of a wide range of items, including artwork, furniture, jewelry, and other artifacts. Our goal is to make the antique appraisal process as simple as possible for our clients.
To begin, we will ask for specific information regarding the purpose of the appraisal and about the antique property that you wish to have appraised. An existing inventory of your collection, any original sale receipts or other information you may have about the property is helpful in keeping your costs to a minimum.
With the above information we can establish a time frame in which the antique valuation can be completed, as well as an estimate of the costs that will be incurred.
Our appraisal fees are based on an hourly rate. The fee will be refunded in part should you choose to consign all or a portion of the appraised property to Hodgins Art Auctions Ltd. within one year of the appraisal date.
