Lawsons are happy to provide a pre-sale estimate for items submitted for sale and offer a free verbal appraisal based on fair market value. If you are considering submitting goods for sale we can conduct a walk through valuation on site by appointment. This service is free but depending on location, traveling expenses may be incurred. We also have a walk-in appraisal morning during our viewing period every Thursday in our rooms (other times by appointment). Estimates can be provided from photographs, please submit valuation requests to
