Find an Art Appraiser
Given today’s hot market, the higher the value of a piece or collection, the more often updates are needed. If it’s been three years since your last appraisal, we recommend that you have your collection appraised as soon as possible so that your most valued objects – and assets – are protected.
You can find highly qualified appraisal services in two recommended ways:
- Through Fireman’s Fund preferred rate appraisal service providers
