valuations for Probate & Insurance

Lockdales offers a complete range of valuation services, both written and verbal.  These are conducted by our in-house experts and consultants based at our auction house in Suffolk.

An up-to date insurance valuation is essential for peace of mind, and the eventual orderly dispensation of estates where multiple inheritors are concerned.

For a reasonable fee, we offer documented record of valuables, specifically jewellery, watches, fine art, antiques and collectables, along with itemised details and valuations accordingly.


We offer a discreet service to family estates regarding the sale by auction of private collections.

 Our full professional service includes:

  • A valuation appointment or home visit where necessary

  • Collection and clearance of auctionable valuables from private property

  • Itemised receipt of goods received

  • Fully insured storage of valuables

  • The option of guaranteed reserves, ensuring sale of all goods

  • Negotiable commission based on value of consignment

Feel free to contact us to discuss these matters further, and for advice on how to specify Lockdales to act on your behalf concerning  dispersal of goods.
