Now, more than ever, with the dramatic increase in the art market, many people are discovering that they have substantial equity in their artwork. Having adequate insurance against loss or damage will protect your assets. Insurance companies require that works of art be accurately described and valued in order to provide coverage.
As a member of the International Society of Appraisers, Zwicker's Gallery is qualified to offer expert valuation and appraisal services for works of art for insurance, donation, probate or family division purposes. Please contact the Director for further details or to make an appointment.
APPRAISAL FEE SCHEDULE
Works of Art per Certificate Administrative Fee per Item,
1 to 5 works appraised $150.00
6 to 10 works appraised $100.00
Over 10 works appraised $ 75.00
If there are a substantial number of works of modest value to be appraised the Administrative Fee Schedule can be negotiated to a mutually agreeable price.
In addition, there is an hourly rate of $250.00 charged for research and investigation.
Any out of pocket costs involved for items such as travel, accommodation, photography, etc. would be addition to the above.
Zwicker’s also offers over the counter evaluations, in which the appraiser provides an estimate of the value of your artwork. It is not a formal appraisal, which is an in-depth evaluation. An over-the-counter evaluation is sufficient for a person who requires a rough value of their artwork, which can be used to determine if the artwork is worth pursuing a formal appraisal.
An appointment is recommended for an over-the-counter evaluation.
The evaluation is verbal only.
Fee for estimate:
$75.00 1 artwork
$15.00 (each) additional artworks
Negotiated fee for large collections.
