If you have a flood-damaged piano in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire or Oxfordshire, I may be able to help with an insurance assessment.

Since the devastating floods of 2007 I have gained extensive experience in handling of insurance claims. Whether you are a policyholder, loss-adjuster or insurance company I can offer a valuation and advice. If the piano in question is deemed to be an uneconomic repair I can advise on which instrument is the nearest modern equivalent, essential for “New-for-Old” policies. Flood damage can often shorten the life of an instrument even if it appears to have recovered from the ordeal.

I am happy to supply written valuations for probate, insurance, export or selling purposes of any type of piano, and I am also conversant with export requirements to the USA regarding restrictions on ivory.
