At www.parkwestgallery.com/collectors/appraisals.aspx Park West solicits your appraisal business by offering a replacement cost (insurance) appraisal in writing for $35 for the first object and $20 for the second. I will not reprint their web page here; however, I urge you to click on the link and read the particulars of their service. Then compare it with our information on the blog for hiring an appraiser and what you should demand in an appraisal.
Considering all the problems this company is having with litigation in challenging their appraisals, I am surprised that this page is still up. It might be informative to compare this web page with solicitations from appraisers that are trained and have credentials to support their expertise.
