Art Inventory and Estate Planning

A current Art Inventory is a helpful and necessary tool to have for your art and object collection.

If you are looking to make changes to your collection, if you are downsizing, relocating, or planning your estate, you will want to have an updated inventory of your collection.

Sentry Arts has a team of Inventory specialists that can collect art inventory data and photos or update your existing inventory. An updated inventory will enable you to track the location and condition of your collections over time. In doing so, you will be better equipped to maintain its value, and reduce unnecessary value loss. 

We begin each inventory project with a meeting and, if applicable, an art inventory review. Sentry will work with you to clearly outline your goals and provide an Art Inventory Budget. Upon approval, our specialists will be dispatched to your site to complete the inventory work including: documentation, photography, condition review, organization, and the assigning of inventory numbers.

Once Sentry has finished creating or updating your artwork database, we can train you and your team to maintain the inventory and update the on-line system whenever anything changes. By completing a Condition Evaluation, which includes  reviewing the condition of your artwork, we are able to provide you with a complete picture of your artwork holdings, and make recommendations that will serve your goals.
