Below are some commonly asked questions regarding having your art appraised.
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.
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.
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.
If you request an appraisal through our site, there is a field to upload your photo. You are also welcome to arrange an appointment and meet at our convenient office location if meeting at your home or office is not an option.
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.
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.
