Protect your contents and special items and keepsakes.
Antiques, heirlooms and one of a kind items require expert valuation in order to be properly protected before loss, damage or theft occurs.
The irreplaceable nature of a family’s treasured items cannot be quantified properly without written verification from a recognized expert.
We can also update your old and out of date appraisals to current values to verify that your items are properly protected.
In the unfortunate event of theft or damage from accidental in-home occurrence or after a relocation, we can also assist by reporting on the original value of your object, before the damage, and allow you to gain insurance compensation.
Obtaining insurance appraisals is important in Canada for art, antiques, and collections for several reasons:
Determining the value: Insurance appraisals provide an accurate and current value for your items, which is important for insurance purposes. In the event of damage, loss, or theft, your insurance company will use this appraisal to determine the appropriate compensation.
Coverage requirements: Some insurance companies require a current appraisal before they will provide coverage for your valuable items. Without an appraisal, you may not be able to obtain insurance coverage for your art, antiques, or collections.
Estate planning: If you are planning to pass on your valuable items to heirs or donate them to a museum, a current appraisal can be helpful for estate planning purposes. It ensures that the items are properly valued for tax and other purposes.
Resale value: If you ever decide to sell your art, antiques, or collections, a current appraisal can be helpful in determining a fair market value for the items.
Provenance: A professional appraisal can also provide important information about the item's history and provenance, which can be helpful in determining its value and authenticity.
Overall, obtaining insurance appraisals for art, antiques, and collections is an important step in protecting your assets and ensuring that they are properly valued for insurance and other purposes.
