AppraisalsIf you are considering selling an artwork, Menzies will provide a free initial estimate of your artwork's value. Our specialists can appraise Australian and International works of art in all mediums. Note: Menzies is a secondary market for artworks, so we cannot value new work by artists currently working and/or exhibiting.
To submit an e-valuation please CLICK HERE. Our specialists will appraise your work and respond to your query within 3 - 7 days. If you have any problems submitting your artwork online, please telephone us and we can talk you through the process.
Every Wednesday between 2pm and 5pm our art specialists conduct obligation-free appraisals in our Melbourne and Sydney offices. If Wednesday afternoon is not convenient, please call our office to make an individual appointment. Alternatively you can post us a clear photograph of your item including the dimensions, artist's signature, medium, physical condition and any other relevant information. Please send copies as photographs cannot be returned.
Prior to each auction our specialists visit Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane to provide free appraisals to clients. Times for these visits are advertised on our website and in the local press. Clients on our mailing list are notified in advance of visits by brochure and/or email as preferred. Appointments can be made by calling our Melbourne, Sydney offices.
Menzies offers a prompt and wide range of specialist valuation services to private collectors, corporations, government organisations, executors and financial advisors. Valuations can be for insurance, market appraisal, probate, family division, the Cultural Gifts Program or leasing.
All valuations are undertaken on a strictly confidential basis and include accurate descriptions and the option of accompanying digital photographic records.
Quotations for Valuation services are available upon enquiry to our office. We charge a reduced fee for updating existing valuations by Menzies Art Brands, so you can always keep your insurance valuations current. Fees for market appraisals will be rebated if you consign your property for sale with us.
Timothy Abdallah, National Head of Art is an approved valuer under the Commonwealth Government Cultural Gifts Program.
