Appraisal fees are a minimum of $250. per hour, excluding any associated expenses, such as travel, photography, office, consultations (when necessary), scientific reports, et.al. This fee provides a written appraisal report which adheres to the standards set forth by the “Uniformed Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” and “The American Society of Appraisers”. It also will include documents, photographs, and prices of objects relevant to the appraisal for cost-evaluation comparison purposes.
We very politely ask that you not phone us with objects that you would like to have appraised, as verbal descriptions of any object are unproductive and ineffective, but please do send us by email or regular mail a preliminary description and photographs, if possible, of any object you would like to have appraised. We welcome your emails or letters!
Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org Verbal appraisals are completely free of charge. You may forward any information you have to our business address or contact us via e-mail.
