Valuations for insurance purposes

It’s vital to know exactly what your assets would cost to replace to ensure you have appropriate insurance in place. If you’re under-insured, you won’t be able to recoup the true value of your property or machinery.

During the last few years, insurance companies and insurance brokers have actively sourced valuations or employed specialist valuation surveyors like Thornburn to check sums insured or declared values when faced with a major loss.

It’s in everyone’s interests to have an accurate valuation, and we work with insurers, insurance brokers and clients seeking insurance to offer peace of mind and ensure maximum protection.

Our Approach

Our expert valuers are skilled in preparing all forms of pre and post-loss insurance valuations, including:

  • Reinstatement cost
  • Indemnity value (market value or depreciated reinstatement cost)
  • Modern materials
  • Obsolete buildings
  • Demolition costs only

We have wide experience in the valuation of buildings and machinery before damage and the advice we give should ensure that sums insured are set at accurate levels.
