“The Lifetime Appraisal”

NIA appraisal documents are permanent. Once each piece in the collection has been fully documented and researched you will never need another insurance appraisal of this artwork – ever!

NIA will re-evaluate and update your appraisal as often as you request. You will only pay a small “update fee”, regardless of how often you may need this service.
