Auction Evaluations and Consultations
Kimballs expert appraisers provide auction evaluations, or preliminary estimates of what an item or small group of items may bring at auction free of charge. Receiving an auction evaluation puts you under no obligation to consign, but we take it on good faith that you are considering selling your item at auction.
Before arranging an appointment or house call, we ask to see pictures of the items. This ensures that we match you with the appropriate specialist.
