Independent Appraisal

Insurance Coverage

Make sure your fine art and antiques are properly covered by your insurance by getting a professional art appraiser to value your collection. Our certified appraisal reports are accepted by all insurance companies and are written in conformity with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Our insurance art appraisal reports include images of the objects as well as detailed information about them to ensure your treasures are properly cataloged and valued.

Insurance Claims

Whether you are an insurance adjuster or individual who suffered a loss to a piece of collection, we can write an insurance claim appraisal report for you. If your painting, print, sculpture or antique was lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed, we can properly appraise the art or antique item or collection. Our art appraisals are incredibly thorough to ensure that the painting, antique, or collectible is properly valued. We also do conservation for paintings, prints, sculpture, and antiques, so we can determine whether your art can be conserved or restored after it was damaged.
