Trade Enquiries

We will be happy to provide an expert and efficient valuation service for your shop based in Kent or Sussex.

For 5 or more full appraisal items we will visit your shop and conduct our appraisal at your premises.

You can send us your client’s items as long as they are insured through the postal system.

By prior appointment we can conduct ‘Valuation Days’ at your shop to help generate more footfall.
