An appraisal is the crystal ball of Auctions
It all starts with an appraisal.
It’s our belief that expectations are managed best with honesty, experience, and knowledge. Our experienced appraisers know what questions to ask and where to research items in order to achieve the best price.
And it’s the discovery we love – the best finds our Appraisers have had are those in the dark corners of the cupboard, packed away in boxes or just about to be thrown out. Knowledge and experience is the key to unlock the value in your estate.
First step is to understand which items are suitable for Auction. Below is a form to complete and upload your items for potential Auction sale. Our team will respond with an indication of what is accepted for Auction.
Our Auction industry mentor, Jason Harris has created a guide to Appraisals, what to expect, the timelines and other things you should know. It’s a short and easy to read guide.Scammell's Appraisal Guide
We love the discovery of the hidden treasures in your home.
And we have so many stories to share of the “gold” at the back of the cupboard, left forgotten for years. Our staff are trained and each have their own area of expertise, and together there is little we don’t know of Antiques, Art and the more obscure collectables.
At Scammells, it’s our belief that expectations are managed best with honesty, experience, and knowledge. Our experienced appraisers know what questions to ask and where to research items in order to achieve the best price. This allows them to provide an accurate idea of what the value of your item is before the auction itself reveals the true value.
