Recruiting Auction House Specialists

Posted by alex in Case Studies · December 2020

Auction Houses  often find themselves requiring the services of Specialist Valuers to provide expertise on particular categories of property. Most have their own network, but often there are gaps in availability, and this is where DRAW can help. DRAW has a robust and up to date database of Specialist Valuers built up over more than 15 years. We have good geographic coverage and specialists who are happy to travel where this is feasible. DRAW engages the specialists on contracts for services, deals with payroll, and they are covered under of professional indemnity insurance. All DRAW specialists have undergone our standard compliance checks for their Right to Work, Identity, and References.

“I contacted DRAW because I needed very specialist advice on an important clock collection which involved clocks by the premier names of English clock making. At the time I was on holiday but by the time I returned, DRAW had organised a specialist with many years’ experience who catalogued the collection to a tight deadline, with condition reports and invaluable advice on cases, movements, and makers. The whole process was made easy by DRAW. and was excellent value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Jeremy Lamond, Director, Halls
