Your jewellery is precious and it is important to protect it. In the unfortunate event that your jewellery is ever lost or stolen and you need to make a claim, your insurance company will probably ask for proof of ownership and value.
A professional valuation for insurance purposes, carried out by independent valuers, is by far the best way to maximise your chances of achieving a fair result. Also, if the police recover your lost possessions, a valuation with high-quality images and detailed descriptions could be the only way you can provide evidence of ownership.
All valuations are registered on a secure database. These are held anonymously but are retrievable so they can be checked by the police and insurance companies if required.
While the majority of valuations are for insurance purposes, they can also help if you need a valuation for probate or sales between parties.
Even though jewellery is the most popular item that F.Hinds value, they also offer valuations on watches, porcelain and clocks.
F.Hinds hold regular Valuation Days in their stores throughout the year. They're always popular because they provide you the opportunity to speak with an independant valuer face-to-face and ask any questions you may have. You can learn more about your jewellery, have it cleaned, weighed and measured. Your items are appraised and valued - along with a detailed description of each item - and presented to you in a professional portfolio.
Valuations on the day are by appointment only so if you're interested in attending one, please call up the intu Lakeside store to make an appointment for one of their Valuation Days.
