When it comes to assessing your rug’s value, no one is more qualified than Atiyeh Bros. We offer two types of rug appraisals, depending upon your needs:
Certified Rug Appraisals
For customers who need a formal, written appraisal for insurance, estate or other similar legal purposes, we offer certified rug appraisals. We have a Certified Rug Appraiser on staff who graduated from the Certification Specialist program administered by the Oriental Rug Retailers of America (ORRA), of which there are only 2 appraisers in the state of Oregon. This service is offered for a fee of $175 for the first rug and $75 for each additional rug.
Relying on our experience, training and certifications, we can offer a verbal assessment of your rug. This includes it’s value, origin and history, age, structure (hand-made or machine-loomed), design and quality. Our technicians are Certified Rug Specialists, having completed a rigorous rug-industry training and certification program through the Association of Rug Care Specialists (ARCS). This is done routinely as part of our area rug cleaning process, or when a customer can visit and/or supply a photo of their rug. There is no charge for this service.
