Home Contents And Inventory Appraisal
Our home contents and inventory appraisal services are extremely beneficial should you or your home be the victim of a catastrophic event such as fire, theft or an act of nature.
How It Works
A fully certified, personal property appraiser will visit your home or business and provide full documentation of key assets and assign fair market value.
What Does It Cost?
Our standard Home Contents & Inventory Appraisal covers the basics such as furnishings, electronics, general household tools and lawn maintenance equipment and knickknacks around the home.
This type of appraisal does not penetrate 'special collections' such as artwork, coin collections, comic book collections, jewelry, sports memorabilia, sportsman collections ie; knives, decoys, firearms etc. Please consult with us pertaining to special pricing on 'Special Collection Appraisals.'
Upon our free initial consultation we will assess your inventory and provide you with our fees up front to ensure there are no surprises. We are confident that you will find our professional services are prompt and cost effective.
A client contacted us to appraise some furnishings in her deceased father's home. After five minutes into the visit, I asked about the giant dumpster sitting in front of the home. She replied, "Oh just a bunch of junk my dad had laying around." I took a walk inside the dumpster, moved a few boxes, turned around and asked the client to call her two sons. I then spent the next two hours identifying and sifting through approximately $1,000 worth of antique collectibles that almost got thrown away.
So remember, don't throw anything anyway until we get there!
