Personal Property Appraisals

Whether you need an appraisal for legal proceedings, a charitable donation, insurance or tax purposes, an entire estate or business valuation, or simply have curiosity about a family heirloom, we are here to help.

We want to help you realize the truest actual value of your belongings. Whether it be for tax purposes, business valuations or personal knowledge of what your art, jewelry, coins, vehicles, business equipment or antiques are worth, we can help you.

We provide certified appraisal services for:

  • Estate & inheritance settlements
  • Divorce settlements
  • Insurance purposes
  • Financing
  • Lost vehicle titles
  • Charitable donations
  • Legal purposes
  • Household goods & business equipment
  • General goods such as Alaskana, antiques, collectibles, and so much more! 

We are pleased to offer USPAP (Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice) compliant appraisal reports. From firearms to fossils and trucks to tractors, we can appraise just about anything excluding real estate. We can help you determine the fair market value or estimated replacement cost for your belongings.

Appraisals are done by appointment only. Give us a call or email today to see how we can serve you! Contact Us Today! >>

What are Appraisals? Do I need one?

We provide valuation services and USPAP compliant appraisal services for assets. Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) can be considered the quality control standards applicable for personal property and business property valuation appraisal analysis and reports in the United States and its territories.

If you need to know what it's worth, whether you need a value for insurance, to settle an estate, or any other reason, we can help. Value is always relative to other factors in determining what an asset is worth. The most important question we ask that leads to value is "why do you want to know what an asset is worth, or for what purpose do you need an appraisal?"

The value for your insurance company to replace items might be very different than the value if you're just thinking about selling the asset and we can help you determine if you really need a certified appraisal for an item you are considering selling. The IRS also has its own requirements and definitions of value and divorce courts have theirs too. 

If you have questions about the appraisal process, or simply want to know what something might be worth, give us a call today at 907.570.7050 or send an email to Nick@AlaskaPremierAuctions.com so we can help you figure out what your assets are worth.

Our Process

We pride ourselves on selling inventory in a quick, easy, efficient, and profitable manner.
Whatever the case for parting with your possessions, we are honored to lend a helping hand with one of our carefully curated auctions.
Our easy 5-step process is fast and we sell most inventory in 6 weeks or less!

  1. FREE Consultations: We offer complimentary walkthroughs and digital consultations to assess the value of your assets and the potential of an auction. Start by giving us a call at 907.570.7050 or sending us an email with some photos to info@AlaskaPremierAuctions.com
    • If you’re looking to have an estate sale or liquidate your business or surplus inventory, we’ll come to you for an on-site walkthrough to assess the scope, volume, and accessibility of your possessions.
    • If you’d like to have us transport your items to our facility with our moving vans, we’ll make an appointment for the pick-up.
    • You can also bring items to us!!
  2. Contract: We’ll review our contract with you, agree on commission, get it signed, and we’re off to the races! We’ll give you an estimated timeline for when we’ll begin cataloging your items, when the sale will go online, and when you’ll receive your detailed seller settlement statement with your payment check.
  3. Catalog: We catalog items with high-quality cameras and photography equipment while writing vivid and detailed descriptions for our catalog. Although we offer limited previews, most of our customers rely solely on our online catalog to make their purchases!
  4. Pick-Up & Payment: After the auction, we’ll handle collecting all payments, pick-ups, shipments, etc. Sit back and relax while we sell your stuff! 7 to 14 days after the auction closes, you’ll receive your payment in the mail with a seller settlement statement which itemizes how your belongings were sold, for how much, and how much you make.
  5. Write us a review! After a job well done, if we provided you with 5-star service, we’d love for you to write us a review on Facebook or Google!
