Appraisals for Insurance Claims on
Damaged Works of Art
It is recommended that appraisals of damaged works of
art contain 3 separate values. The first will evaluate the art in an undamaged condition. The
second will evaluate the art in an "as is" condition. The third value will show the items worth
after restoration. This type of document will provide the client and the insurance company
additional information with which to reach an agreement on any claims.
One of the major advantages of NIA's
appraisal process is that once the collection has been evaluated, a full insurance
appraisal will never be necessary in the future. NIA will reevaluate and update the
appraisal as often as requested. Clients only pay a small fee, regardless of how
often they may need this service. Updates must be utilized within 30 months
of the last NIA appraisal.
