Valuations

Valuations

Valuations are all about trust. As proud members of the National Association of Jewellers we offer a complete portfolio of Valuations services:

RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUATIONS

For all relevant new purchases Green + Benz will provide a complementary Valuation for Insurance. Upon request this can be updated at no charge (providing the items are still in stock).

INSURANCE VALUATIONS

Insurance Valuations are the most common type of valuation we undertake.  Without an accurate up-to-date valuation you may run the risk of being under insured in the event of loss or theft. Many insurance companies even stipulate that items over a certain value are individually specified on the policy and regularly updated to ensure valuation limits are adequate.

Please check your individual policy details for further information.

Green + Benz Insurance Valuations provide the full required information - including size, quality and images of every item.  In the event of a claim, without this proof, you may find that replacement value is based on an item of ‘average’ quality rather than specifically what you have actually lost.

Our Valuer ALAN HAYES is a highly qualified member of the Institute of Registered Valuers and is certainly a name you can trust for accurate jewellery appraisals.

VALUATION FEES:

Valuation for insurance or probate - First item £55, each subsequent item thereafter is £35.
Miscellaneous items are charged at £10 per item.
Valuations are completed within two weeks.

IN-STORE VALUATION DAYS

Our expert Alan Hayes is also regularly available for ‘In Store Valuation Days’.  Approximately every three months we offer a one-to-one valuation experience, at no additional charge.  This offers the benefit of discussing your items face to face with Alan (he’s very easy to talk to!) understanding more about each piece and even learning more about his expertise.  A valuation is subsequently available immediately or will follow in the post should any further research be required.

Please contact either Green + Benz store to confirm the next available date and to register your interest. 

CONFIDENTIAL HOME VISITS

Please note home visits are available by appointment, at an additional cost. Please call or come into the store to discuss this further.
