Inventories, Valuations and Divisions
Inventories and Valuations are carried out upon request.
Numbering / Descriptions / periodic Dating & Valuing are done on site.
A visit by the valuer will give the client a clearer idea of costs and time frame for the job in consideration.
Divisions and Allocation of portions can be drawn proportionally from inventory.
A Comprehensive ‘Guidlines’ document is available for clients, upon request.
The ‘Guidlines’ are an information pack to help clients in the step-by-step process, as undertaken by this firm.
If you require an Insurance Company to cover Works Of Art you own or are handling, it would be necessary to have a professional document prepared by a Valuer.
Your Insurer will request this document.
This service is provided against an hourly rate and can be agreed at the initial appointment stage.
If you are unable to attend an auction to bid in person for a lot you may have examined during viewing, you may instruct bidding to be done on your behalf by using our absentee bid service.
Absentee bids allow customers to leave bids on lots that they have an interest in. The bids are executed as low as in-room and/or other instruction bids allow.
For online bids please click leave a bid online
It is also possible to book a telephone bid; Having completed the appropriate form, you are called by our staff during the auction of the lot itself. To book a telephone bid, please make sure you contact us early, and not during the auction session. Phone Bids are accepted at the auctioneer’s discretion and the auctioneer reserves the right to refuse single or multiple Phone Bids. Please also be advised that a maximum of 4 phone lines are available for any single lot.
Auctions are held regularly in houses. When necessary or requested, contents are auctioned from the homes they are found in. Many factors are considered for this, and are usually discussed after a first visit by the auctioneer.
Preparation time varies according to the size of the house and its contents. If you are considering such an auction, please ask for a ‘House Auction Guidelines’ reading pack, which gives a step by step account of how such a project is executed.
Single items and groups of items are accepted for inclusion in our auctions. Items can be consigned to our auction gallery where an inspection and valuation are done prior to inclusion in our auctions. Regular weekday office hours run from 8.30 to 12.00 and 13.30 to 17.00.
It is often sensible for the auctioneer to examine and advise the prospective vendor on site, prior to moving items for auction. Advise during home visits prior to consignment to aution is free of charge.
