Collectable Car Valuations

Paul Blank has many years of experience as a Valuer for collectable cars and related automobilia.

Since 1999 he has been an Approved Valuer by the Federal Government's Department of Communication and the Arts scheme known as the Cultural Gifts Program. This program allows institutions to expand their collections without the capital expenditure usually required. Owners of objects can donate items to an approved institution and benefit from generous tax incentives the Program provides.

Several car museums around Australia are participants in this scheme and have benefitted from some magnificent donations. The cost of the Valuation is also tax deductible. Paul is one of just four Valuers in Australia approved for motor vehicles.

Paul's clients have included:

         The National Motor Museum,                   Powerhouse Museum,                   The National Museum of Australia,            Australian Federal Police Museum,

            The Sir Henry Royce Foundation (NSW),        Queen Victoria Museum (Tas),             Braidwood Museum (NSW),                      The Motor Museum of WA, 

            Ford Discovery Centre (Vic),                      Temora Aviation Museum (NSW),                   Bathurst Regional Council (NSW),               Carrick Hill Trust (SA),

            The Workshops Rail Museum (QLD),       The Abbey Museum (QLD),      Western Port Oberon Association (Vic),       Australian Motorlife Museum (NSW),

The Australian War Memorial (ACT)    and various law firms and insurance companies.
