Valuation and Appraisal Services

Our experienced team of specialist valuation professionals is always available to offer an expert opinion on the identification and likely sale value of your items, together with practical advice such as suitability for sale of your items, the type of sale into which they should be entered to maximise the return to you, and the reserve (minimum price) which should be accepted for them.

Valuations for sale purposes are usually free of charge, if you are selling with Keys.


We are happy to provide initial assessments from digital photographs sent to us by email. Please contact us if you would like a valuation by email and we will put you in contact directly with the relevant specialist.

Pre-Sale Appraisals

Free no-obligation sale appraisals are available in person at our salerooms during our usual opening hours from Tuesday to Friday (between 9am and 4.30pm). No appointment is necessary, although if you wish to see a specialist in a particular field you are advised to contact us in advance to avoid disappointment.

Formal Valuations

We also offer a full service producing formal written valuation reports for purposes of probate, insurance appraisal, and marital division. These are usually charged at an hourly rate; please contact us for an initial no-obligation discussion about how we can help, and a quotation.

All valuations can be carried out either at our salerooms, or at customers’ homes or business premises.
