And, if you have us pick up your furs for storage by June 15, 2013, we’ll take 20% off our fur appraisal service.
Why have an appraisal?
It’s important to know what your fur is worth and that amount depends if it’s for an insurance agent or potential buyer of your fur.
An insurance appraisal on a fur garment is an estimate of the retail replacement price. It covers the cost of a new item that is similar to the one you own. What it would cost to replace yours if it were stolen, lost or destroyed with a new garment of the same fur, style, length, size and quality.
The cash value appraisal is the amount of money you could reasonably expect to get if you sold your fur. That amount is determined by factors such as the age of the fur, its condition including the skins, style, size, length and marketability. Age has less to do with the value of a used garment than the care it has been given over the years.
Proper cold storage, as well as, cleaning & conditioning during the warm months is a huge factor in maintaining your fur’s value.
