Over the past year David Tilleke and his Associates have become increasingly involved with Golf Clubhouse Trophy and Memorabilia Valuations and have worked for many of the top Golf Clubs throughout the United Kingdom. Michael Clifford continues his work as Projects Manager and David Neech, retired Sothebys Golfing Consultant, has also joined us to oversee the Golf Memorabilia side of the Business.
David Tilleke is a Fellow of the Auctioneers and Appraisers in Scotland and has a wide range of associates throughout the UK auction world. This enables him to report accurately on high value specialist items and artefacts.
This company therefore advises and reports on all categories of antiques, sporting collectables and fine art, as well as more modern household items and general chattels. He works closely with clients, insurers and solicitors to ensure a speedy, efficient and discreet service.
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.
