There are many reasons why someone would want an appraisal for value of firearms they own. Generally they fall into 3 categories.
The curiosity reason is by far the most common reason why gun owners want to know the market value of their firearms.
In economics 101, they teach that an item’s value is the price someone is willing to pay you for it today in an open, competitive market environment. Note the period.
Our job is to create that open competitive market environment and have bidders do battle for your valuable items on our auction platform.
In order for us to find multiple bidders for an item, we pay to have an enormous e-blast of 65,000+sent to subscribers who are interested in knowing about firearms for sale.
We are really good at finding the top value for the guns we have for sale.
For seniors, widows, estate executors and trustees who wish to divest themselves of the rifles, shotguns, pistols, ammunition and related gear they possess or are responsible, we have a viable, safer, and legal alternative to giving away your firearms for free or attempting to sell them privately. Do not give your guns away. We can sell your guns for you.
Whether you intend to sell the firearms in your possession or not, reducing your insurance-related liability and getting a clear and accurate estimation of what your collection is a worthwhile endeavor.
As of January 2016, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires all firearms be professionally appraised. For widows, heirs, and estate executors who have firearms bequeathed to them, that means the CRA requires you to have estate firearms appraised before a will may be probated. (see The Estate Administration Tax on Firearms)
