Insurance Valuations – With time on your side it’s now the opportune moment to get an itemised insurance valuation of your home contents or an update to an existing valuation. The Webb’s team can work on this remotely assisting and advising you via email, phone/video call or photographs.

Have you made a significant purchase that requires itemisation on your policy or have you inherited something that should be on there? Significant changes in the market mean that valuations for certain pieces will have fluctuated greatly in recent years, it’s important for you and your family to be appropriately covered. From entire collections to single-pieces, get in touch, we’re happy to help.
