Carriage House Violins offers an appraisal service for instruments and bows.
Insurance coverage is the most common purpose for an appraisal. The assessed value is a “replacement value” or the cost at which the instrument could be replaced, with something similar, within a limited time period. This service is available when we are in agreement with the established attribution.
Appointments are preferred, and a minimum of one hour is needed for examining your instrument or bow for appraisal.
The cost (per item) of an Appraisal is as follows:
|Verbal instrument or bow appraisal||$50|
|Bow insurance appraisal||$75|
|Instrument insurance appraisal, valued up to $10,000||$100|
|Instrument insurance appraisal, valued over $10,000||$150|
