A flat fee of € 90 is charged for a verbal valuation of the first work, and € 60 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]’.
For a written valuation, the fee consists of a flat fee of € 175 plus a variable component, which is 0.5% of the insurance value. The flat fee for every subsequent work listed in the same report is lowered to € 75.
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.
For a written valuation for two paintings with respective insurance values of € 5,000 and € 35,000, a flat fee of € 175 + € 75= € 250 plus a variable component applies of € (5,000 + 35,000) x 0.5% = € 200. Total cost: € 450.
If further investigation of the authenticity is needed, the valuation costs may be higher. In that case we will first contact you with a quotation.
