Sandafayre provides insurance valuations of stamp collections. If you already own a valuable stamp collection, accumulation or rarity you will know it is a complex and highly-prized asset like almost no other; we highly recommend it is correctly insured at the right level.
We have more than 40 years’ experience in all things philatelic. Therefore, we are highly respected as leading experts in the field of stamps. This includes rare stamps, highly collectable stamps, postal history, collections and entire estates of collectables.
Here at Sandafayre we help ensure you get the right level of cover. We provide you with an Insurance Valuation for your stamp collection. Our valuations are expertly researched and written by our dedicated Philatelic Specialists. Once you have received our written valuation all you need to do is pass this to your insurance company who will then provide you with the relevant cover.
We want to ensure that you are well prepared and in the position that you receive the best settlement figure from your insurance provider. Our philatelic insurance valuations are based on the likely cost to replace your stamp collection in the open market. With a professional philatelic valuation you will be in the strongest position to secure the right settlement from your insurance provider.
An Insurance Valuation for a stamp collection, accumulation or single rarity is complex and very detailed. As a result, it requires in-depth expert Philatelic knowledge built across many years. Therefore there is a fee for the Valuation. We typically charge 2.5%+VAT of the valuation amount or minimum £250+VAT.
To give you added peace of mind, if we believe your stamps are of low value we'll highlight this early on. As a result providing you with the opportunity to stop the valuation.
If you are also looking to expand your stamp collection, Sandafayre holds stamp sales every week. In addition, we hold public stamp auctions every three months in Cheshire called ‘Cheshire Stamp Auctions’. These are shown on this site a few weeks before sale day.
