Home Visits

 

If you have a substantial collection of antiques, are in need of a house clearance or are unable to get to the auction house for a valuation, we can send a valuer to you. Our specialists will be able to give you a suitable estimate for each of the pieces you would like to sell and transport some smaller items to the auction house, free of charge. If you have larger items, or a large number of smaller items, we can recommend a local carrier.

 



House Clearances

 

We provide a comprehensive house clearance service in association with local carriers. This includes inspection, valuation, packing and carriage and a careful sorting and identification procedure which ensures items of value are not overlooked. This service gives access to our weekly Household Sales and specialist auctions. Our aim is to optimise the potential value of all house clearances.

 



Probate and Insurance Valuations

 

Our valuations for insurance and probate purposes are supported by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors qualification which is recognised by solicitors and all major insurance companies. It is an assurance of expertise, experience and market knowledge. For written probate or insurance valuations enquiries, please email valuations@davidlay.co.uk
