Insurance Valuations

If you had to list, describe and value your collection or home contents after a fire or theft, could you provide your insurance company with sufficient information to ensure a complete and fair settlement? If the answer is “No” be prepared to accept a lower claim settlement.

On average 1 in 20 UK homes are burgled annually and a surveyed 98% of homeowners are underinsured. If you have fine art, antiques or jewellery make sure you have a detailed inventory and current valuation.

Ensure all your possessions are comprehensively described, listed and valued to a professional standard. Nesbits Auctions Ltd can advise on the type of valuation you may require, such as “retail replacement,” “facsimile replacement” or “auction replacement,” ensuring that in the event of loss or damage you can replace items easily and without dispute.
