Our Services and Departments
On instructions from Solicitors, Executors, Trustees and Insurance Brokers our services include written valuations for Probate (Inheritance Tax) and Insurance (retail replacement purposes).
Private Client work involves written valuations for Family Division and Willing Buyer- Willing Seller.
Instructions from Estate Agents and Solicitors and Banks will often require the complete clearance of contents of homes.
Items of a saleable and unsaleable value are all inventoried prior to removal from a clients property. Collection is efficient and thorough and our hauliers are often asked to superficially tidy a house up on collection for an Estate agent to market
Items of value are then consigned to our monthly antique and collectors auctions whilst items of a more specialist nature are marketed before inclusion in our specialist quarterly international antique auction.
Prior to auction our client will receive a pre sale listing confirming entry of item(s) in to a sale.
Hansons work closely with a number of local charities including St Giles Hospice, Hospice Hope, Help the Aged, Cancer Research and Heart Foundation who will often take items of no sale value at auction including white mellamine and teak furniture.
