How H and B Appraisals Work
H & B Gallery offers appraisals both on site at the residence and in house at our store. The rate for on site visits is $125 an hour, with a minimum charge of one hour. This is recommended for items that are large or heavy, or for appraisals of many items. The in house rate is $95 an hour, with a minimum charge of one hour. This works best for smaller items such as jewelry, china, silverware, or few piece items such as a set of chairs or small mirror.
Appraisals pricing falls into three categories: Insurance, Market, and Estate Sale pricing. Any one or combination of these may be provided for the appraised items, depending on the customer’s need. For more information or to arrange an appraisal, please feel free to call us an arrange an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, but depending on the store’s current activities, an immediate appraisal may not be available for the considered item.
Feel free to take a look at our example appraisals!
