Appraisal Services - Damage or loss reports

Damage/Loss Reports

Manzi Appraisers & Restoration damage and loss reports are accepted and respected by all insurance loss companies. We are among the preferred appraisal providers for many major insurance companies, transit & storage companies, adjusters and claim service providers.

Each damaged article is carefully examined, catalogued, digitally documented and appraised on a pre-loss replacement value basis as of the date of loss. In the event of a total loss or theft, valuation is based on all available information and forensic reconstruction.

Insurance Appraisal Reports

Our insurance appraisal reports for insurance coverage are nationally accepted by brokers and underwriters. Our reports comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and other regulatory boards. We appraise items based on their current value to ensure that they are protected by an upfront agreement with the insurance company in case of damage or loss.

We fully catalog and organize items by location and/or category, and digitally photograph them for accurate documentation as the owner’s personal property as of the date of inspection. We can provide necessary support and reports to efficiently manage the claims process by offering retail replacement values and comparable replacement values.

Artworks are fully cataloged and organized based on the client’s preferences. They are also digitally photographed for accurate documentation as personal property of the owner at the date of inspection. Each item is researched to determine fair market or marketable cash values.

Estate Appraisals

Manzi Personal Property Appraisers will provide a valuation for use in an Estate Tax Return. When we use the term “fair market value,” we mean the most probable selling price or price available in the open retail market between a willing buyer and a willing seller. Neither party should be under any compulsion to act, and both should have reasonable knowledge of the facts. This definition is in accordance with The Internal Revenue Code Section 20.2032 of the Estate Tax Regulations.
