As an independent valuer, our fees are not based on the value of your items. We use a fixed menu-style fee structure linked to the number of items in the valuation and their complexity, and which include VAT.
Beautifully presented in a bound folder, we provide exceptionally detailed reports. In addition, each valuation contains picture pages and explanatory notes. View an animated sample jewellery valuation.

We accept payment using PayPal or major credit cards.
