Cordier Auctions provides a range of appraisal and consultation related services based on client needs.

Certified Appraisals
Written personal property appraisals are often required for insurance coverage or loss, charitable donations, equitable distributions, sale or liquidation, financial and estate planning, wills and estate taxes, and divorce settlements. We have full time certified appraisers on staff and consultants who have expert knowledge in specialty areas. Our appraisals adhere to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.

Informal Appraisals
We can provide verbal appraisals of single items, collections or estates. Please contact us to discuss your options. For a free estimate on items you would like to find out about seling at auction, email us photos and include your name, contact information, location, and as many details as possible about your items including the age, material, provenance, and how many pieces you have. You can also text that information to 717-704-6652.

Presentations & Appraisal Clinics
We are available to speak to large and small groups on a variety of specialty topics. We also conduct “Antiques Roadshow” style appraisal clinics. Our fees for presentations are hourly based with special consideration for nonprofit groups.

Open Appraisal Day
Open Appraisal Day is held the first and third Wednesday of each month from 12pm to 6pm at our auction facility. We provide complimentary opinions of value or “verbal appraisals” for up to 5 items. Appointments are not necessary, but recommended.
