Here is a Solution to Your Risk Management Problem
Nearly everyday we are asked by banks, lenders, financing companies, equipment leasing agencies, and more to help establish equipment values.
Over the past few years, your industry has become more heavily regulated by
Internal Audits … Federal Regulation … SBA Requirements … and the list goes on and on.
But, what are businesses and their machinery / equipment really worth? Since the answer is often critical to developing and maintaining a healthy loan portfolio, it makes sense for lenders to use a professional and certified valuation or certified appraisal when funding capital equipment loans.
We are prompt, efficient, and cost-effective. For lenders who need an accurate valuation of machinery and equipment worth, we provide Certified Machinery / Equipment Appraisal Reports and/or Certified Valuations.
Our certified valuations and appraisals are independent, defensible, consistent, comprehensive and easy-to-use.
Our reports are accepted by the Small Business Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, every Court, including Municipal, County, State, and Federal, and by the largest banks in the world.
Our reports are up-to-date and compliant with:
U.S.P.A.P (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice)
Due to our compliance with U.S.P.A.P. our Reports also meet all the major federal financial regulations including:
FIRREA (Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act)
Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

Q. What report writing Standard do you use?
A. We primarily use the Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice (U.S.P.A.P.), but have also used the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) on an as-needed basis.
Our reports will be written with the appropriate guidelines based on the effective date or with the most current guidelines at your discretion.
Q. What Timeframe should I expect for delivery?
A. We are much faster than our contemporaries. We have fine-tuned our system and can produce a higher quality report in a shorter time.
We generally can have a Desktop Appraisal Report turned around in 3 days and can have an Onsite Appraisal Report turned around in 5-10 days depending on the Onsite Visit timeline. Of course, larger reports will take more time, and we will give you a very realistic time for delivery.
We also have multiple appraisers and researchers who can engage for RUSH delivery and can generally accommodate your needs in that regard.
Q. What are your Fees, and what are your Fees Based on?
A. Every equipment appraisal is uniquely quoted. We can generally have a quote back to you in 1-2 hours after we receive a depreciation schedule or asset list to gauge the size of the job.
Our fee is based on these modifiers: (1) Quantity of Equipment being Appraised, (2) Timeframe for Delivery, (3) Travel Time and Costs, (4) Type of Report [Desktop vs Onsite].
We try to quote in Flat Rate (Total Job Cost), but depending on the quality of the asset list / depreciation schedule we can also quote in billable hours, or base fee plus additional fees as needed.
We require a minimum of half down and the remaining balance to be paid before report delivery.
Our fee for expert witness / external services will always be separate from the Appraisal Report fee to keep the report unbiased and irrefutable.
Q. Why should we choose your company?
A. We are Faster. – We Produce Premium Quality Certified Reports. – We do 10 Times as many Appraisals as a standard Appraiser. – Our Reports are reviewed by at least 2 Master Appraisers. – We are Nationwide and can match the perfect Appraiser to your Client.
