For a variety of reasons, it may be wise to have your special contents appraised. These include:

- Death/donation: In the event of death, you will want to have insight into the valuables present. A report helps with the declaration for inheritance and/or distribution within the family. The goods are valued at 'fair market value'. This is the value they would have fetched at the time of valuation in the free market.

- Insurance (in accordance with Article 7:960 of the Civil Code): A valuable collection or household effects also requires proper insurance. With the help of a thorough report for insurance, the value is described that is necessary to obtain an object of equivalent type, quality, condition and age. Depending on your insurer, a reappraisal is necessary after 3 to 5 years. The costs for a reappraisal are lower because the content of the report often does not need to be adjusted.

- Estate division: If partners separate, an appraisal report with relevant description based on fair market value offers a good solution.

- Damage: When damage occurs, it is important that an independent expert can assess the value of the property. This involves looking at the value in undamaged condition and the decrease in value after the damage occurred. In addition, insight is given into the costs for possible restoration.

Verbal appraisal advice at the auction house:

On location, you can have an object appraised by the appraiser. He will examine the object and let you know verbally what the object is worth in the current market. This opinion is not binding and only a guideline. The costs for an oral appraisal are € 50.00 per object.

The findings can also be recorded in writing. For this there are additional costs
