The Process From Here

1. Contact and make an appointment with a conservator

We will prepare a safe place to put your item so it can be unpacked and examined. The conservator will examine your objects and discuss what needs to be done, what can be done, and how much it might cost.

2. Decide if you want a proposal and estimate.

If you want to proceed, the conservator will prepare a written list of treatment steps and will do some initial testing to ensure the methods and materials are safe and effective. The proposal and estimate will be mailed to you. The estimate will include and minimum and maximum cost for time and materials. You will be invoiced for the cost of the proposal and estimate after it is completed ($125 + sales tax, if applicable).

3. Decide if you want to proceed with treatment and sign the proposal.

Two copies of the proposal and estimate will be sent to you. If you decide to have the work done, please sign one copy of the proposal and estimate and send them back to us.

4. After the treatment is completed, you will be billed for the work.

Once we have received the payment, we can help arrange a time to pick up your object. We will send you photo documentation and a written report for your records.
