Protect Your Investment
Your fur holds significant value. Fur retains its value through years and generations because it’s a timeless style. Wearing fur will always make a bold statement and invoke an aura of unmatched sophisticated class.
These are the reasons why many people decide to buy fur, however the decision should not be taken lightly. Evans Furs and Leathers walks with you through every step of the purchasing process.
After making your purchase, we encourage our client’s to take the next step in fur ownership: appraisal.
Whether it is a coat, jacket, or cape, your fur has a unique worth as a luxury item. Fur is not an everyday material or purchase. Acquiring a fur appraisal is financially sound action to protect your purchase’s value through the course of ownership.
Fur Appraisals: Insurance, Resale, or Estate Planning
Do not leave your fur investment under or uninsured. Your fur should be insured properly to protect against loss or theft. We advise having your fur appraised every two to three years to make sure you have the current assessment value for your item.
Evans Furs and Leathers can appraise your fur item, even if you purchased your fur from another store. Give the appraisal to your insurance agent for their records. Some insurance companies will not properly replace the full value of your fur without a recent appraisal. Also, ask your agent about relevant deductibles and depreciation values.
For a small fee, our team of master furriers will thoroughly inspect, prepare, and issue a formal written appraisal.
We also appraise fur for selling purposes. If you are interested in reselling or trading your fur at one point, bring it to us for appraisal. We will examine it and document the value to ensure you getting the fur’s full worth.
If you are planning to pass down your fur, keep appraisals in mind during estate planning. Having official documentation for the value of your fur will benefit your family or beneficiary.
