Q. How will MY client be handled by your firm?
A. We are very focused on helping you maintain your relationship with your Client. We realize that you have chosen to bring in a third party for a specific reason and we ONLY fill that reason. We absolutely will not “backdoor” you or jeopardize your client relationship. Many times we use your company as the primary client on our report (depending on the legal scenario). We also focus on transparency with you and will establish you as an intended user of the report. We will also keep you updated as to the time line through the process.
In the past, we have even offered reports branded with your company information, signed by our Appraisers.
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. Are you able to perform as an Expert Witness? What Court Room Experience do you have?
A. All of our Appraisers have performed in the Expert Witness capacity and have passed the Daubert Challenge (several times for some). Our reports have been accepted in all levels of Court including Municipal, County, State, and Federal.
We have each undergone training specifically for Expert Witness Courtroom Presentation. Our Appraisers have been used as Expert Witnesses on many occasions.
A current CV / Resume will be provided for the Appraiser working with your Appraisal Report.
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 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) Time frame 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.
Not withstanding, we are focused on being helpful through the process – We make it Simple for You and Your Client.
