Excellent Service

Having recently changed home insurers I had a single item to be valued. I am very pleased with the service received. The home visit was prompt, professional and friendly. The advice received informative including advice on a repair. The report received is well laid out and detailed with excellent pictures. I now feel confident that should anything happen to this item, I have ample evidence to backup a claim.

Appraisal for Insurance

Not having had an appraisal for many years and also having added some items during that time, it was obvious we were due for an up-to-date appraisal for insurance purposes. We were recommended to use Julian Cousins and made an appointment for him to visit our home at Westgate on Sea. We could not have been more pleased with the whole experience, with Julian’s prompt arrival and pleasant manner and also we were totally confident with placing the whole process in his hands. An added bonus was also that he noticed faults with the clasps on the engagement ring and we were able to get these repaired before a disaster occurred. We are happy that Julian gave us a 100% service and would not hesitate in recommending his service to others.

It was a pleasure to meet Julian and use his evaluation services. From the point of contact the whole process was nothing less than professional. Julian is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. As I am very much a novice at this Julian, helped make the process straight forward and comfortable. I would highly recommend Julian and would use him again in the future!

Very Friendly & Professional Service

The item was a diamond solitaire ring. From the initial conversation to receipt of the bound valuation, the service provided was friendly and professional. The website provided information that was relevant and useful. Contact with Julian by telephone and email was easy so that arrangements were made efficiently and quickly. As it was necessary to meet a deadline required by the insurers the initial pdf copy of the valuation was sent simultaneously to me and to the broker as soon as it was ready. The bound and printed copy of the valuation was of excellent quality and well presented.

Friendly, Knowledgable, Professional

Julian was outstanding from our very first enquiry, he replied quickly and was able to fit us in for a valuation at short notice and around our busy schedule. Julian is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He was happy to answer all of our questions and would patiently explain everything to us in great detail. He took his time to ensure a thorough and accurate valuation was given for each of the items and this was beautifully presented when returned to us. We highly recommend Julian, and will most certainly be using him again in the future.
