Easy Steps to Receiving a Free Valuation from the Comfort of your Own Home if you are anxious about Covid-19

Vernon offers a free, fully insured, registered postage service on all items sent to him for valuations. Vernon will appraise and value your collection free of charge and the item/s will be returned at no charge to yourself (fully insured).

Step 1. Send item/s by registered post. (the maximum value for complete insurance is £2500 per registered package, if you have a collection you consider maybe worth more than £2500, then Vernon can give you guidance on how to send it fully insured)

Step 2. Vernon will value and appraise the items without any obligation. The items can then either be returned or you can instruct Vernon to sell them.

Step 3. Should you wish Vernon to go ahead and sell, two contracts of sale will be sent in the post, where you sign and date both copies and return one copy in the envelope provided.

Step 4. Once sold within the 10 day period you will then receive a sale report and your monies will be transferred direct to your bank account or sent by registered post.

I have already posted a review of the excellent service Vernon offers elsewhere but what I did not mention, which is very pertinent in these days of Coronavirus, is that transactions have been done purely by post. Post the items to him and Vernon will catalogue, estimate their value and post all the documentation, as he did with us including the contract of sale and sale notice. He then sent the cash through the post. It was a first for me as I did not realise that valuables by post, including cash, are insured for £2,500 and can be increased up to £10,000. As I have said before Vernon offers a fabulous service, now even more relevant in these troubled times

5 Star Valuation Service!

We had gold bracelets, gold watches, gold bangles and gold rings to be valued. Firstly Vernon was extremely knowledgeable from my laymans descriptions over the telephone. When we visited, all government guidelines for COVID-19 were in place and we were made to feel very comfortable with distancing etc well observed. We were very impressed with Vernons valuation especially as he made time to see us very quickly. We will definitely return to Vernon and whole heartedly recommend his fast, efficient service too.
