Appraisals are needed when one decides to purchase insurance for their instrument or bow. Insurance providers commonly require a written valuation of the instrument in question from an independent company so that they can underwrite the policy.
An appraisal includes a description, measurements and the market value of a specific instrument. With this the individual can buy insurance with the sum assured equal to the market value of the instrument. Please note that an appraisal is for insurance purposes only and is not a legal document to claim authenticity.
