Markham is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Gurr Johns valuers, a renowned firm specialising in the valuation of fine and decorative art, jewellery and general household contents. This partnership enables our brokers to offer your clients preferable terms for insurance valuations.
In undertaking a valuation, Gurr Johns provides a detailed and fully illustrated inventory of possessions, available in both printed and digital form.
In the event of a loss, details are readily accessible to any relevant party involved in the recovery or replacement of an item.
As a part of our partnership, Gurr Johns are also offering a complimentary year of their bespoke annual updating service for each valuation.
Historically, values of fine art, antiques and jewellery have often been volatile, both upwards and downwards, and maintaining an accurate and up-to-date valuation has proved to be difficult.
While it is common practice to update values for property rebuilding costs and general contents on an annual basis using an index-link, fine art and antiques are not generally subject to this method and values can quickly become out of date.
The Gurr Johns annual updating service uniquely applies an annual indexation to each individual item in a collection thus ensuring values remain current.
