I had a costomer call me the other day explaining to me that he just switch insurance companies, and in doing so was asked to get his Mark VI tenor sax appraised. He said with his old insurance company, it was valued at 5800. I thought that was fair. My question to you guys is, (a) Do you think its a good idea for a tech to get involved with this kind of thing? and then (b) How in the world can anyone judge the value of a Mark VI? I mean, they go anywere from $1500 to $12000! They just don't make them anymore, so you can't just goto the price book. And there is no blue book for saxophones! (not that I know of ) All I did was looked 10 Mark VI horns on the net and took the average value. It came to about 5800... And then lastly, (c) do you think it's appropriate to charge a fee for this service? I wasn't going to, but I wasn't sure what the rest of you guys did in this situation. Any thoughts? Thanks!
