'Discover, Value, Trade'
UK Households Are Sitting On An Estimated £1,750 Of Unidentified Treasure
The much loved BBC TV series 'Cash in the Attic' has entered the digital era with the launch of an interactive website, CashInTheAttic.com and an app. Users can now enjoy first-hand the 'Discover, Value, Trade' experience seen on the show, as well as a suite of other services and functions.
For a decade, Cash in the Attic fans from over 160 countries have witnessed expert appraisers venture into homeowners' attics, basements, and everywhere in-between to identify items eligible for auction, often earning a tidy profit. Now for a small fee, enthusiasts can upload images and videos of their own objects to CashInTheAttic.com, or via the app, which will be sent to an expert valuator for examination. These specialists determine the value of the item and within 48 hours an official valuation certificate is issued, which can be used for accreditation at external auctions or in the CashInTheAttic.com 'Market Place'. The national network of valuators has wide ranging specialties from toys, to memorabilia, to clocks and Militaria, ensuring that an independent, accurate and bespoke appraisal is given.
