Insurance Valuations

Share this :

Our expert valuers provide prompt and accurate valuations of property and business assets for insurance purposes.

It is crucial for businesses to be mindful of the potentially damaging impact that out of date valuations or undervalued assets can have when facing an insurance claim. The task of maintaining accurate valuations can feel daunting and often something that can be put off for 'another day' but too often that day never comes and businesses are hit with significant losses as claim pay-outs are vastly out of sync with true values.

Do I need an insurance valuation?

Asset valuations are project managed by our expert insurance valuers from start to finish to give you the peace of mind that all aspects are taken care of and your insurer is in possession of up to date, robust and accurate valuation reports that will stand up to scrutiny in the event of a claim.

The Importance of Insurance Valuations
Insurance valuations of the buildings and the many types of machinery and other business assets your business owns are highly recommended by insurers, particularly in the following circumstances:

  • Where current valuations are several years out of date
  • Where there is a significant reliance on foreign machinery
  • Where assets and machinery are old
  • Where a business has undertaken significant restructuring, investment or downsizing

An up to date valuation will ensure that the level of insurance cover provided is appropriate and they are often required as part of the due diligence process when renewing a policy. Expert valuations from our insurance valuers can also avoid the application of valuation averages being applied to assets in the event of a claim which can result in underpayment of claims. Accurate valuations often enable a simple and quick negotiation process with loss adjusters, therefore speeding up the settlement of a claim.

With a team of both property and plant and machinery valuers located across the country, we can meet all of your insurance valuation needs in an efficient and cost effective manner.

Valuation methods
We provide insurance assessments using the following three methods:

  • Reinstatement
    This is the cost to repair, reconstruct or renew assets to a condition equal to but not better than when new
  • Indemnity
    This is the sum assured for items equivalent to the cost of replacing the items with identical or substantially similar equipment in a condition comparable to the existing asset
  • Market Value
    This is the recoverable value where assets are surplus or no longer used

Our experts can advise you on the most suitable valuation method to fit with your requirements.
