We continue to provide a probate and insurance valuation service.
This begins with a home visit where all the items requiring valuation are listed. After this, a detailed written inventory is prepared describing each item and a value set aginst each one (for either probate or insurance).
It is always recommended that for insurance purposes, valuations are supported by photographs. These prove themselves to be invaluable as they have the added advantage of showing the condition and colour of the item.
Our auctions are attended by prospective purchasers from all areas including London and the South East, together with local people looking for the elusive bargain. As a local auction room with a wide and varied range of goods, we have certainly seen interest grow. As with all modern businesses, the Worldwide Web is a new and exciting string to any financial bow and our catalogues are published on the internet. This enables buyers from around the world to see what is on offer in any auction, then a simple telephone call to gain a condition report, and a bid can be left with the auctioneer. If the buyer is successful, Pettmans is in the unique position to be able to despatch the item immediately
