Valuation is an incredibly important process to help you understand the value of your items and protect them.

Our valuation service will help you uncover the unique history of your items and bring their stories to life. Providing you with all the details about your item, our valuation service is a key step in bringing it to auction or protecting cherished possessions.

We provide a confidential and professional service to solicitors, executors and trustees, as well as private clients. Written assessments can be prepared for:

  • Insurance
  • Inheritance Tax
  • Family division
  • Current market value
  • Asset management

The document will contain a detailed description of each item seen, including measurements, distinctive marks and restoration or damage.

A complete inventory or valuation can prove to be a priceless document for all the above purposes, as well as in the event of loss or damage, giving you extra peace of mind.

We can also advise on the valuation, and sale, of entire estates and collections.

Items can be brought into our auction showroom every Friday for a free appraisal, or to the many valuation days we host throughout the year.

Every week at Hansons, we host specialist valuations for different departments.

We also accept images and descriptions of items sent to us via post or email.

For larger items, we can arrange house visits and collections from your home.

Our transport team is also able to offer a full or part house clearance service.

On collection, we will consign all saleable items.

Everything that can't be sold will be disposed of appropriately or donated to charity. A full collection service starts at a fee of £25 plus VAT.
