Greg Parry telephoned Gustamps too late. Greg told Gustamps he was trying to find out what his stamps were worth by looking at Ebay prices. Unable to compare his stamps with those on Ebay, Greg contacted a dealer in Sctland, local to a valuation. The dealer in Scotland charged Greg a valuation fee of £25 giving Greg a “market valuation” of approx. £60 for the entire collection. The Scottish dealer was not interested in buying the collection himself. Eventually Greg found out from a friend at work that Gustamps valuations are free. Greg then contacted Gustamps for a free valuation to confirm the value of his collection. Gustamps gave Greg a free valuation and confirmed the stamps were worth somewhere between £55-£75. Gustamps also offered to buy the collection for £75. Thanking Gustamps for the free valuation, Greg decided to keep the collection after all. Greg was upset that he had paid the dealer in Scotland £25 and said he wished he had come to Gustamps first. If you need to have your stamps valued, do not pay for the service, have your stamps valued free by Gustamps.
Shane contacted Gustamps on 14th April 2014 and asked Gustamps ‘how long do I have to wait for a free valuation from Gustamps? As there is some urgency and I need to have a valuation quickly.’
Gustamps answered that it depends on how busy we are at the time. Most valuations are completed within a few days, often you can obtain a valuation from Gustamps on the same day. Gustamps have been known many times to give instant valuations on the spot within a few mintes of being requested and remember speedy valuations are at no extra charge. Gustamps stamp valuations are free regardless of how soon they are given.
Gustamps would like to thank Shane for his question and Shane’s valuation took only an hour and a half. If any readers would like to have their own stamps valued free of charge please contact Gustamps at your convenience.
