Top Tips for Antique Valuation

Having antiques and collectables valued can be tricky. If you feel you've found a priceless item, there are numerous online valuation agents who can help value your antiques.  Antique shops, house clearance specialits and auction houses can all help, or provide valuations as a sideline business.

Do's

Find a reputable valuer - for example a trusted auctioneer. No standard qualifications exist in this field, but you can check for accreditations from the following: FRICS (Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) or ASFAAV (Associate of the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers).
Find out what fee the valuer will charge for the valuation; whether a percentage fee or a flat rate.
Store the valuation receipt safely and securely in a different location to the item, for obvious reasons.

Don'ts

Don't forget to note the small details, which can help identify your item in the event of loss or theft.
Get one valuation and trust it completely. Consider having it valued a few times.
Specialist valuations may be required by specialist valuers, for example fine art or jewellery.
