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 collectables, antiques or art. Where estates require clearing we suggest you look at our Christchurch based sister company, "The Estate Clearance Company". 

Our expert valuation knowledge and good connections within the local and greater NZ markets allow us to maximise the return on high-value assets. Lower value lots can be purchased outright allowing you to clear the estate promptly.

Valuation services demand maximum privacy and respect which is extended into 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.

    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.

  • 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.

Without their guidance we probably would have ended up throwing ...

    Jane Workman, State Insurance

I would highly recommend using Fine Antiques if you are looking for a comprehensive accurate valuation.
