Certified Rug Appraisals
Do you need a Persian, Oriental, or Area Rug appraised for insurance purposes? Behnam Rugs offers verbal and written rug appraisals. We offer written rug appraisals for fair market value as well as replacement value. Please give us a call at 972-733-0400 if you need a written appraisal for insurance purposes.
We deal with antique, vintage, and coveted Persian and Oriental rugs on a daily basis; we can easily determine the current value of your rug. The value of your rug is influenced by age, color, condition, current rug trends, designs, size, technical features, and much more. We provide written appraisals by request. We need to physically see your rug to determine its state of health, either in person or through a Facetime call.
The rug market is fueled by specific, in-demand types of rugs, and these categories vary frequently. Rugs trends, like fashion trends, are quite subjective. The value of your rug may change depending on how sought after it is. We recommend having your rug appraised on a frequent basis, about every three years or so.
In addition, if you do not wish to meet face to face, just schedule a Facetime call with us and we will appraise your rug during the call. If you know the relevant information about your rug, such as the size, material, country of origin, and approximate age, you can text us a few pictures of your rugs and we can appraise them that way.
We are open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM. You can give us a call, email us, or use our contact form to set up an appraisal appointment.
If you require an appraisal for insurance purposes, ask us about our written appraisals. These appraisals are official and detail both the market value and the replacement value of your rug. Many insurance companies will not honor written appraisals over three years old, so make sure your papers are up to date.
