The website, that offers paid-for online valuations provided by a team of valuers, had been working with Barnebys art and antiques search service for some time. 

“We see growing need from individuals as well as from auction houses around the world wanting easy and quick valuations for their items by competent experts. Art market reports show that currently under 5% of people use auctions to trade in the secondary market. We expect that figure to double within the next ten years”, said Christopher Barnekow, co-founder of Barnebys.

ValueMyStuff was owned from 2015 by online auction house Auctionata but, in March 2017 in the wake of the Auctionata bankruptcy, administrators sold the firm back to its founder for £120,000. Van der Vorst now becomes a shareholder in Barnebys.
