Valuation

Fees (VAT included)

In some cases, further investigation into authenticity will be required and additional costs will be incurred. If so, we will contact you with a quote.

Verbal

A flat fee of € 75 is charged for a verbal valuation of the first work, and €50 for every subsequent work. All proceeds from verbal valuations are donated to a charitable cause. A verbal valuation is processed after the amount has been received in the bank account for our charitable causes: NL24 RABO 0309 3538 66 in the name of Simonis & Buunk Encounter, reference: ‘Verbal valuation + [your name + telephone number]’.

Written

For a written valuation, the fee consists of a flat fee of € 175 plus a variable component, which is 0.4% of the replacement value. The flat fee for every subsequent work listed in the same report is lowered to €50. If you would like a written valuation report following a verbal valuation, the amount already paid will be deducted from the applicable rate for a written valuation.

Revaluation

Many insurance companies require paintings to be revalued every three to four years. If we conducted a written valuation on your behalf less than 10 years ago, you will receive a 50% discount on a revaluation.

Example

For a written valuation for two paintings with a respective replacement value of € 5,000 and € 35,000, a flat fee of € 175 + € 50 = € 225 plus a variable component of € (5,000 + 35,000) x 0.4% = € 160 applies. Total cost: € 385.
