Valuation service now available
Our first class jewellery valuation service is now available once again. Bookings to leave items for appraisal can be made now, please make an appointment. Normal working procedure has been modified to keep us all as safe as possible and you will find a note of services on offer below.
Use the navigation buttons above to go to the book online page to arrange an appointment, please read on for further information.
At the office
Our Sowton office has arrangements in place to protect you, staff on site and other tenants so you are requested to comply with any reception rules when you call. Only one person in the office at any time and we regret children under ten cannot be accommodated.
Office Drop off
Once you have made an appointment you will be contacted with further information and arraignments will be made to send you a booking pack, containing plastic bags for the jewellery and a declaration form for you to fill in with essential details.
Home Pick up & Drop Off
If you live in the Exeter, Plymouth and surrounding areas I am able to offer a pick up and delivery service from/to your home. This service will require a small additional charge. Valuation appraisals cannot be carried out in your own home until the pandemic has passed.
If you are further afield pick up & delivery might still be available depending on the number of items to be valued and distance of travel - please call the office for details. This service will require a larger covering charge.
Card payments can be made or a PayPal invoice can be sent via email. Card readers will be fully cleaned between users for your safety. Cash or cheques cannot be accepted at the moment.
Exactly the same procedure as above with the exception that handing back will entail you checking the items and countersigning your receipt form.
