Art & Antiques Valuation Service

Contents Insurance Valuers,
Deceased Estates & Collection Appraisers.

Fine Antiques value and catalogue antiques and art, specialising in contents insurance, matrimonial separation, deceased estates and the cataloguing of large collections.

Valuation is our core business, not a sideline activity often found with auction houses and antique shops. We do not value based on our own sales experience, we value based on thorough research to ensure your assets are correctly covered and true fair value is realised.

Insurance Valuation Reporting

You may have just experienced a loss, or wish to ensure you have adequate insurance cover, either way our friendly staff can travel to provide cataloguing and valuation reporting.

Contents Insurance Valuers

Our experienced contents insurance valuers will help ensure your household contents and collections are fully insured and that you are correctly re-bused at time of loss.

Are you responsible for clearing an estate?

It can be a very difficult time when a loved one passes, or a family member is downsizing their home to enter a rest home. Most often the family will need to find a way to manage the clearance and liquidation of the home, and usually in a timely fashion to have the property ready for sale. This task is compounded further with the busy lives we lead, or when the family members live out of town.

Fine Antiques are often engaged to value estates where there are high value antiques or art. Where estates require clearing we recommend our Christchurch based sister company, "The Estate Clearance Company". Our expert valuation knowledge and good connections within the local and greater NZ markets allows us to maximise the return on your assets.

Valuation services demand maximum privacy and respect which is extended to the Estate Clearance Company. Please feel free to ring today to talk about your situation, or check out the Estate Clearance Company website for more information.

  • State Insurance Contents Valueer

    Jane Workman, State Insurance

    I have used Fine Antiques on two occasions and both times have been impressed with the level of friendly professional service. A lot of effort and detail goes into providing an accurate estimate of items, even down to providing where they can source a replacement if possible. I would highly recommend using Fine Antiques if you are looking for a comprehensive accurate valuation.

    Deceased estate liquidation

    Paul Jones and Fine Antiques helped us sell items from my father’s estate. It was a stressful time and Paul could not have been more considerate and highly professional in his assistance to us. I have no hesitation in emphatically recommending Paul and Fine Antiques for their top quality services. Big thanks.

  • Southern Response Valuer

    Kirsty Hamilton, Southern Response

    I am responsible for the earthquake related contents claims for Southern Response – the government owned company responsible for handling and settling the earthquake claims of AMI Insurance policyholders.

  • Lynda Stewart, Christchurch

    I have engaged Fine Antiques - Antiques & Estate Valuers for valuing antique dinner sets, water sets and ornaments damaged by two of the Canterbury earthquake events. I have found their service helpful, convenient and prompt to use and this made the contents claims challenges easier to cope with. I am very pleased to recommend their specialist service.
  • Sally Park, Australia

    We first met the Fine Antiques team when having to come to Christchurch after my Aunt's death to tidy up her Estate. We really had no idea what to do or where to start but Fine Antiques gave us amazing guidance on the worth of different objects - many of which we thought were worthless and the best way to sell the items. Without their guidance we probably would have ended up throwing ...
  • MacDonald Paul Gourlie, Dunedin

    It was good meeting you both, thank you for the professional manner in which you approached our family home, I really appreciated that you were able to get on with the work without requiring my input as this left me free to get on with my tasks at hand and honour our memories.
