Whether you need a valuation for insurance, probate, private sale, or family division
S Dowthwaite FGA DGA Ltd can offer you a hassle free, transparent service.
Private Sale
Looking to sell an item privately? 
This type of valuation will give a value that is fair to both parties. 
Biased on the open-market value these valuations are for the purpose of Inheritance Tax and are in accordance with the Inheritance Tax Act of 1984.  
Family Division
Attempting to divide assets fairly between relevant parties? 
Valuations for family division are used to calculate the net return should your joint assets be sold, and can therefore be used to calculate a fair settlement. ​
The majority of valuations we undertake are for the purpose of insurance. Whether at retail or open market level, we can help with both. This type of valuation ensures you are correctly covered and in the event of a claim accurately describes your pieces.
Need a valuation for a different purpose, or still not sure what type of valuation you require? Please feel free to contact us ​ ​​

In House Valuations

Valuations are carried out on-site in the Salisbury office.
