What is it and What's it Worth?
Are you thinking about selling a maritime item or items and do not know what its worth today?
Have you inherited something that you're not sure what it is or what to do with it?
Time to clean out the garage/attic/basement and don't want to give things away that might be valuable?
Seen a SOLD item on our web store that is similar to an item that you own and want to know what it sold for?
Then this is for you! Skipjack's professional evaluation is a quick and easy way to get a feel for what you have and what it's worth in today's market. The values assessed are what we believe the item is worth if offered for sale in today's marketplace or comparable to an item that we has recently sold here at Skipjack. Please understand, that values are not written in stone and like all personal property may vary from one region to another. This is a professional "opinion" and should be used accordingly. We cannot be held liable for any losses that may occur from our evaluation.
Sorry, marine art is NOT included in this evaluation offer!
Follow these steps:
Within 7 business days (of receipt of your paid order and images), you will receive a short written evaluation including estimated age, market value, and suggestions for the best outlet if you are contemplating selling.
This service is $30 PER EACH INDIVIDUAL ITEM, not per picture of several items.
If you stump us (we cannot provide any information), we will refund your money!
We are a small business with years and years of experience, but a very small staff. We are simply not able to respond to requests for free information or appraisals.
Would you like to sell your item to us?
Sorry, we will not consider purchasing any items that we have evaluated for you, nor should you ever expect any professional appraiser that has evaluated your personal property. It is against all appraisal ethics to do so.
Also, Skipjack Nautical Wares will not make "offers" for the purpose of obtaining items for sale. We expect any seller interested in offering a nautical item or items to have a firm price available. We will not haggle with sellers over their merchandise for sale just as we do not when selling.
Skipjack Nautical Wares & Marine Gallery will consider a consignment option for items that we have evaluated if we find it suitable for our gallery.
Dealers of nautical antiques and collectibles, marine art, lamps, lighting, ship salvage and hardware, Skipjack sells quality nautical furniture and furnishings, marine instruments, model boats, nautical gifts and decor. Skipjack’s Marine Art Gallery features marine paintings, sculptures, ship models and folk art featuring mermaids, whales, fish and fowl.
Please visit our online store again soon or if in the Hampton Roads (Tidewater) coastal region of Virginia, visit our marine gallery in historic Olde Towne Portsmouth. We're just a short distance from Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and just across the river from downtown Norfolk. By boat, we're located at mile marker "0" of the Atlantic Intra-coastal Waterway!
