Insurance Appraisal versus Professional Furriers Appraisal

Sellers often have an unrealistic expectation of CA$H value when selling their pre-owned fur coats or jackets.

What is very important to know, is that there is a big difference between an Insurance Appraisal and a Professional Furriers Appraisal.

Insurance Appraisal. This is a document written for a fur coat owner for the soul purpose of Insurance value only of the total retail replacement cost. It covers the probable cost of a brand-new fur coat, that is similar or exactly like the one you currently own – i.e. what it would cost to replace your fur coat if it was stolen, lost or destroyed, with a brand-new fur coat of the same fur type, length, size, style and quality in today’s economy.

Professional Furriers Appraisal. If you are currently interested in selling your pre-owned fur coat, what you need to be truly aware of, is the actual CA$H value of your pre-owned fur coat in today’s used fur coat market, which is not at all what your Insurance Appraisal was even created for.

The current used value of your existing pre-owned fur coat will be significantly less, than the Insurance Appraisal which is only used to determine the replacement cost of a brand-new fur coat through your house insurance.

Remember that any item is only truly “WORTH” what someone is willing to pay for it.

The price we offer for pre-owned fur coats is objectively determined by a physical Professional Furriers Appraisal, which factors in such things as, the age of the fur coat in its current condition, including the fur skin dryness, length of coat for recycling value.

This procedure can only be performed by a Professional Furriers Appraisal.

Please note, is not a free fur appraisal service. Our objective is only to determine if we are interested or able in recycling and purchasing your pre-owned fur coats.
