How does the appraisal process work?
According to your individual needs, Hill Art Valuation will arrange an appointment to meet with you and view your artwork. Upon inspection of the work, Hill Art Valuation will discuss your specific needs and customize your appraisal report according to the intended use and purpose of your report.
How much does it cost?
All fees will be determined upon inspection of the artwork and require your approval in advance. This will prevent any surprises regarding the price of your appraisal report.
How long does it take?
The timeliness of your appraisal report is very important to Hill Art Valuation, so all deadlines and dates will be discussed and arranged in advance. Each report is unique so depending on whether you have one painting to be appraised, or an entire estate or collection, all factors will be considered when determining the completion date of your report.
Can I send you a photo of my artwork rather than have you come to my home or office?
We prefer to see your art in person, so Hill Art Valuation does not accept photos unless they are requested by us in advance of meeting with you. You are welcome to arrange an appointment and meet at our convenient office location if meeting at your home or office is not an option.
Can you appraise my work immediately when you come to my home or office and view it?
The appraisal process requires appropriate research and the application of factors that affect the value of art, therefore an appraisal will not be conducted until it is produced in a formal written appraisal report.
Do you charge for traveling to my home or office?
There are no charges for traveling to your home or office if you live in the Phoenix Metro area (including the cities of Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Peoria, Litchfield Park, or Fountain Hills), and Prescott, AZ. There will be charges if travel is required outside of the listed areas, and these fees will be discussed depending on your location. Your advance written consent of such fees is required so you are informed of such travel charges if they apply.
