• VALUATIONS

Valuations

Over 80% of properties valued by QuestGates in 2016 were under-insured

For property to be insured satisfactorily, accurate valuations are vital. Under-insurance will result in insufficient cover and, equally, over-insurance means the policyholder is paying too-high a premium. Both are avoided when a professional insurance valuation is conducted

Our CILA and RICS qualified adjusters and surveyors establish what the accurate values at risk should be. They consider legislative changes and other specific complexities when calculating re-building costs to ensure the total of re-instatement is calculated. We work to the highest standards or professionalism and are regulated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)

We have reduced the time taken to value plant, machinery and contents by combining our insurance expertise with the client’s purchase cost knowledge to pro-actively reach an approximate value at risk. In turn this can be used as a guide for the client or their broker at renewal. It is beneficial to IT equipment, plant insured on an indemnity basis and multi risk sites.

Our service has been utilised and praised by insurers, brokers and corporate clients for over 10 years. We have a wealth of expertise from valuing a vast range of properties from housing, schools, hospitals, listed heritage locations to large shopping and retail establishments. We are extremely proud of the accolade of being appointed for a 2nd three year term as sole provider of all valuation services to the membership of the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA). These services include:

  • Buildings – both commercial and household

  • Plant, Machinery and Contents

  • Fine Art and Antiques

  • Engineering and Technology

  • Business Interruption
