EXCAVO is experienced in writing professional personal property appraisals in fine and decorative arts for insurance, estate planning or donation purposes. We view your collection as an asset and place significant emphasis on the accurate assessment of value in correspondence with current market trends.

Moira McKee, B.A. (Hons), CPPAG, is a professionally trained appraiser and accredited member of the Canadian Personal Property Appraisers Group (CPPAG), completing her Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) in 2012 with the Appraisers Association of America (AAA) in New York. Every appraisal report is competitively priced, thoroughly researched, professionally prepared, comprehensive and clear.

We prepare professional appraisals for:

Insurance coverage
Equitable division of assets (including divorce)
Damage or loss claims
Charitable donations
Current market value for purchase and sale
Estate planning and probate

Our client roster includes estate and tax lawyers, artists, public galleries, registered charities, insurance companies and adjusters, as well as private individuals and collectors. The amount of time and scope of information required for the appraisal report is the basis for the cost of an appraisal.

We are happy to provide verbal or written estimates for clients once the intended use of the appraisal and details of the piece are determined.
