David Tilleke is an experienced Antique, Fine Art and Silver Appraiser with over 25 years of experience. On leaving an Army career in 1985 he moved to Phillips Fine Art Auctioneers and quickly progressed to General Manager based in Bond Street London following some time with Phillips Glasgow as Operations Manager. During this period in the middle 1980s he assisted with Golf Club chattels valuations at several Scottish Golf Clubs.
The importance of updated valuable Sports Trophy Insurance valuation
In view of the fact that over the past year there has been a spate of burglaries in the home countries where Golf Clubs' silverware has been increasingly targeted "under and inappropriate" insurance is becoming a matter of some concern.
In my opinion, the following questions have to be addressed:
The least I can do is make an assessment based on the answers to the above questions. This can be done free of charge over the telephone.
My fees are not "value" based but on the time spent at your club and production of a comprehensive and detailed valuation schedule and photographic gallery. A first anniversary follow up is also included, and assistance, should it be required, in the case of a claim.
An introductory chat is free and may be carried out over the Internet or telephone or visit if required.
I am happy to provide references from several top golf club Secretaries should you so desire.
