Art Appraisal Services
Clients not in easy driving distance from our executive offices can use one of our four convenient plans.
You may send in photos for a free quote on the cost of the appraisal research. If your items are worth researching, and can be done from these photos, you need to follow these with a check. Minimum fee is $195.00. There is no obligation if you don't want to proceed.
We can come to you. Depending on plane schedules and connections, we ask a minimum of $2,500 per day, plus travel expenses. This is often reasonable, as Chicago is centrally located with easy access to both coasts and everything in between. You will not pay more per item than Chicago residents. But only have a higher minimum fee. If your collection is large enough, then your fee would be the same as if you lived here, except for travel costs. We are the country's only appraiser that doesn't charge for travel time.
Weekend and holiday appointments can be scheduled. We are usually in the office on Saturday and sometimes on Sunday doing research. We will do everything to assist clients who wish to drive to Chicago over the weekend with flexible appointments, travel information, hotels, and recommended shopping locations.
We travel extensively all over the country. If you live near a city we are visiting, we'll be glad to meet you at our hotel. The research rates will be the same as if you came to our office (minimum $195.00).
We look forward to meeting you.
We can help you sell.
IT’S YOU WE VALUE MOST!
This is our company slogan, our company creed. We don’t just value art and antiques, for they are inanimate objects without feelings. We prepare documents of authenticity and value for our clients. We must help them find ways to best use them. Through these documents they come to value their collections more or use them to change the value of their lives. We are not just number providers, but a company with deep feelings on a mission to help you. For “it’s you we value most.”
