Question: What do you do differently from an Auction House or a Dealer that provides Values?
Answer: Professional Appraisers determine the "Best Market" for your Personal Property. Typically, an Auction House or a Dealer will give you a Value based on "their" market which often isn't the best market. Also, we provide written reports as necessary , according to USPAP standards, to justify our Values. Our reports are often required by Insurance Companies, Lawyers, Tax Authorities, etc.,
Question: How much do you charge for Appraisals?
Answer: The cost depends on the objective of the Appraisal and how much work is involved. For example, a Market Value appraisal for a single painting from a well known artist is $150 for a 8 -10 page report and an Insurance Appraisal may be $200 for a 10-12 page report. If you have several items (paintings, coins , collectibles, etc., ) the costs would be higher but we discount alot for a number of items. In general, our costs are in the low hundreds of dollars for written reports. If we are asked to do appraisals for many items, the costs would be higher.
Question: I don't want to pay money and be disappointed?
Answer: We feel the same way! That is why initial consulations are no charge and we only complete appraisals when it is well worth doing for the client. We always strive for win/win situations and no negative reviews. Just call or write to us...we are easy to deal with!
Question: What makes the Original Artwork you carry different from other places?
Answer: All of the artists collected by the Gallery are established and known throughout Canada, North America or Internationally. We acquire "special" compositions from each artist. Our clients thus obtain rarer and more unique pieces. All paintings are on-site and available for immediate viewing and purchase. Please visit the Original Art page for a complete viewing.
