Our Services

Probate and Insurance Valuations

Protecting your treasured and valuable possessions, from jewellery and artwork to more unique collectables, is very important to us here at The Canterbury Auction Galleries. We offer a range of valuation services for probate and insurance purposes as we understand the significance of valuing your assets accurately for your own peace of mind. 

Valuation for sale by Auction

We hold free valuation mornings every Friday morning between 10am – 1pm (excluding bank holidays) at our onsite premises at The Canterbury Auction Galleries (40 Station Road West, Canterbury CT2 8AN). No appointment is necessary.  We also hold specialist valuation days and events outside of these times throughout the year, details of which can be found online.  So if you fancy seeing if you have a long lost treasure or just have an item of interest that you want to know more about, please feel free to pop in and see us. House appointments for larger items that you are unable to bring in are available upon request.* Please note the main car park opposite The Canterbury Auction Galleries will be CLOSED from 4th March 2019 for the foreseeable future.  There is alternative parking at the end of Station Road West (leading into The Spires).  Please contact Canterbury City Council for further information at www.canterbury.gov.uk
