While auction sales represent the major part of the business, HARTLEYS is also heavily involved in valuation work of every kind.

Valuations for sale are carried out free of charge, either completed at Victoria Hall, at a clients' properties or via email. 

Probate or family division valuations are performed sympathetically and discreetly at our own premises or at the clients' property, allowing estates to be wound up without delay and with the minimum duty payable.

Insurance valuations and inventories are also performed economically in order that not only are insurance premiums kept at a realistic level, but also so that should a claim have to be made in the future, the insurance company will be encouraged to pay out the appropriate amount without delay. The right kind of inventory is as important here as the correct valuation and can be updated at reasonable intervals for minimal cost.

Fees for probate and insurance valuations can be obtained by calling us on 01943 816363 or contacting us on
