LRVS offers professional verbal and written appraisals of your instruments and bows.

​Verbal appraisals include an opinion on the instrument or bow's age and origin, an assessment of condition with a written repair estimate detailing needed repairs, and a verbal valuation of the item in its current condition.

​Written appraisals include the same information as verbal appraisals, and are available with high quality digital photographs of the instrument or bow. Detailed photographs are invaluable when an instrument is lost, stolen, or damaged.

Appraisals are available at the following rates:

Verbal Appraisals

Written Appraisals

Written Appraisals w/photos

Some instruments, due to condition and/or quality, are not worth the cost of appraisal. In such cases, LRVS will never sell you an appraisal you don't need. With that said, curious customers often desire more information about their treasured heirlooms or finds, and in such cases, LRVS may at its discretion offer a verbal assessment of the instrument's origins and condition at a discounted rate of $25.

Appraisals are performed by appointment only. Feel free to contact us below if you have an instrument or bow you would like to have appraised.
