Why Opt for a Fur Appraisal at LaBelle?
- Insurance Purposes: One of the primary reasons many seek a fur appraisal is for insurance coverage. It's an unsettling reality that several fur owners either don't insure their pieces or have them under-insured. While theft or accidents are grim prospects, they are potential risks.
- Resale, Estate Planning, & Charitable Contributions: For those pondering the resale value of an older fur, considering future inheritance planning, or mulling over donating their fur, LaBelle is more than happy to provide a verbal consultation for a $25 fee. This allows you to understand the potential worth without any formal documentation.
Understanding Your Fur’s Value
The worth of a fur is molded by various factors, encompassing:
- Type of fur
- Esteemed brand
- Current style trends
- Overall quality
- Existing condition
It's noteworthy that a meticulously maintained older fur can frequently be of more value than a newer one that hasn’t received due care. To maximize your fur's value, it's advised to invest in its professional cleaning, adopt adequate storage measures during off-seasons, and ensure timely repairs.
