For a large collection it is important to have a good overview of what the collection consists of. The collection service from Apresa can help you set up a conclusive and working registration system for your collection. We have an extensive network in the art world.
Identify the risks
A beautiful and extensive collection carries risks. A registration system denotes where these risks are and what they contain. When you allow us to carry out our collection service we will register your collection. We start with the following questions:
- How many objects are there?
- What techniques have been used?
- Which artist made the work?
- In what condition are the objects?
- Where are the objects located?
- Are the objects insured and for how much?
Based on this information, a collection management can be developed and a comprehensive registration system can be set up. Apresa has a lot of experience in all these areas and offers the following services:
- Registration and inventory
- Cataloging, allocation, facility management
- Maintenance, restoration and storage advice
- Art historical research
- Market research
An independent, impartial value appraisal
As a market leader, Apresa provides valuations for private individuals, collectors, curators, museums, municipalities and all conceivable institutions. As independent, appraiser, we conduct valuations in the Netherlands and abroad.
Clear and reliable reporting
Apresa reports in accordance with the highest standards in respect of descriptions and details; our valuation reports comply with article 7:960 of the Dutch civil code as standard, as a result of which our valuation reports are accepted by all insurers
Experienced and professional appraisers
Our appraisers combine their broad experience with a high level of expertise when it comes to valuing art, antiques, paintings, jewelry and other valuables. Where some of our appraisers specialize in specific areas they all are general appraisers.
That means they are capable not only of valuing your art, antiques, paintings, jewelry and other valuables, but your household contents too. The valuation of homes or buildings calls for a different kind of expertise, which is why these valuations are carried out by colleagues from Troostwijk Taxaties B.V.
Broad experience and no stake
We possess broad experience in our field and are independent and impartial. We have no stake in sales or the insurance industry.
Personal and discreet approach
We guarantee a personal and discreet approach that is fully geared to your needs.
Research is central
Research is an essential component of our work. Apresa monitors various art markets closely and conducts research continually. This provides a valuable source of information that plays an important role in our organization.
Our method of operation
We first ascertain the objective, the basis of report required for the assignment. The cost and timeline can then be discussed. We start the process once we have the client’s approval.
Apresa uses the Tac-Art and Trevalar valuation systems which were developed in-house. This contributes to the efficiency of the process and ensures control of the entire process.
Client satisfaction survey
Apresa sets the bar high when it comes to the quality of its products. This means that our appraisers are continuously in search of ways to improve our services.
After sending your report, we invite our clients to participate in a customer satisfaction study.
