It’s easy to have your items valued by our team.
If your items are suitable we will then provide you with an auction estimate and details of how to sell with us. We can then organise safe collection of your items if you cannot deliver them to our saleroom.
There are 3 ways you can get your items valued:
- Complete a valuation form with a description of your items and add any photographs in the space provided
- Email a photograph of your item, including as many relevant details as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are open by appointment for informal drop in valuations Monday to Friday, with a Valuation Day every Friday by appointment. Please telephone 0118 950 8611 or email email@example.com to make an appointment.
Larger or bulky items can be appraised during a free home visit by one of our specialist valuers. Please telephone 0118 950 8611 to make an appointment.
In addition we conduct free valuations at The Vintage Look in Henley-on-Thames, every Tuesday between 12.30 and 2pm.

We understand that it can be a difficult and distressing time when arranging the estate of a loved one, but a full written probate valuation of the chattels is not only a legal necessity, but something that can save you a great deal of money and time. We have a very sympathetic approach and aim to make this process as simple as possible.
We will produce a full inventory of all the items within a property, from furniture to jewellery and everything else in between. We take photographs of every room alongside more detailed photographs of specific, higher value items which are kept on record for our clients.
We provide a complete probate valuation service for executors, solicitors and trustees. All of our values are based on realistic market prices, which is important because this is the figure used to calculate any inheritance tax liability. A quick and efficient service is important and we can usually attend the property within a few days.
Once probate has been granted, we will be able to sell all of the saleable items for you, and carefully dispose of any unsaleable ones. We use our own in-house van, and together with local trusted carriers we can collect single items or clear whole properties.
We charge a flat fee of £300 + VAT for most small to medium sized properties. This covers attending the property, time spent compiling the valuation, typing and printing. However this fee may be partially waived if items are being sold through us. You will receive printed hard and digital copies to provide to your solicitor and HMRC when filing for probate.
Together with trusted clearance partners we are able to provide a full house clearance service from top to bottom, no matter how big or small the property.
We will initially visit the property to identify items suitable for auction. We will then collect and deliver the saleable items to our saleroom ready for cataloguing, photographing, marketing and auction.
Our clearance team will then remove the remaining unsaleable contents. Where possible unsaleable items will be given to charity or recycled.
We will always leave the property clean, tidy and ready to go on the market.
