Culvertons undertake fine art and antique valuations, restoration and conservation projects, as well as the sale and purchase of a wide range of antiques and decorative objects. We also offer a broad range of probate services to assist solicitors and executors in their duties as estate representatives. Where we are asked to prepare formal antique and art valuations, we retain the services of dedicated experts to establish open market or replacement values. Our team of skilled craftsmen and women conducts sympathetic restoration and conservation.
All our specialists are chosen on the basis of their knowledge, abilities and discretion. Having such resources at our disposal means that we can readily identify, value and conserve the varied range of chattels (movable objects) within a deceased’s estate. We also appraise works in private or institutional collections when it is deemed prudent to take financial cover against theft or damage or to substantiate an existing claim for the purposes of replacement or re-reimbursement.
Culvertons offer its services throughout central & southern England principally in Surrey, Kent, Sussex and Hampshire, including London.
Our probate package fee is set at £230.00 + vat – it includes the valuation of the contents of a deceased’s estate regardless of its physical size, and also full use of our broad range of estate services.
Culvertons’ team of valuers will give advice when requested, as well as sharing knowledge and contacts.
West Street is steeped in history and has been the centre of the antique trade in Surrey for more than fifty years. It currently has over sixty dealers in residence, attracting customers from all over the world.
For many businesses, having high street premises is an unnecessary expense. At Culvertons we think differently. We value a physical presence on the high street and the face-to-face interaction it affords us with our customers. Our historic, timbered showroom is also a charming setting to view and enjoy, firsthand, our showcase of decorative antiques and fine art. We welcome impromptu visits so please feel free to drop in with your questions and queries.
Alternatively, you’re welcome to contact us by email or phone using the details below or via our contact page. A member of our team will happily discuss any valuation, restoration, probate, and estate requirements you may have.
