Consistent and regular valuations are an important process to the ongoing maintenance and documentation of a collection. Seeking the advice and services of an experienced and knowledgeable professional is a critical step in the provision of an accurate art valuation, and can be tailored according to its objective.

Pre-Purchase & Pre-Sale Reports
An added value component of our valuation services are our Pre-Purchase and Pre-Sale reports. These succinct and expediently produced reports provide the buyer or seller with peace of mind prior to a purchase or sale.
A Pre-Purchase report comprises an assessment of provenance and asking price provided by the seller, in consideration of the current market value and is most suitable for buying at auction, from a gallery or private dealer.
A Pre-Sale report is recommended when selling an artwork in order to accurately set a market-ready price. The report comprises an assessment of provenance and condition, and includes a recommendation for the most suitable platform (auction, private transaction) and market (region, city) for sale.
