Do You Know What Your Equipment Is Worth?

Why Trust The Value Of Your Machinery And Equipment To Just Anyone?
You shouldn’t trust just anyone with determining a value for your machinery and equipment. Why? That’s a great question and we’re glad that you asked. Determining a value for machinery and equipment should be done by a “qualified” and “Certified” professional. An Appraiser that has proven experience, professionalism, and most importantly, is Certified.

You also should make sure that the appraisal company that you work with is USPAP compliant and prepares a Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal mandated by the IRS, CPAs, lenders, and the U.S. Small Business Administration. That way, you are assured that you are working with an industry leader who is a respected provider widely accepted and sought after by other professionals.

The Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisers (CMEA) at Precision Appraisals, Inc., are widely known as a respected industry leader. Backed by experience and certification, our certified appraisals are prepared according to the ethics and reporting mandated by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), promulgated by Congress and the Appraisal Foundation. It is the leading authoritative source for appraisals. Standard Operating Procedures Do REQUIRE A “Qualified” Appraisal.

BEWARE! Not All Appraisal Reports Are Created Equal!
If you guess, rely on the word of a non-certified person (auctioneer or dealer), who may have a hidden agenda, or rely on a depreciation schedule, you should know that the values may be inaccurate and unsubstantiated! The Certified professionals at Precision Appraisals, Inc., deliver a comprehensive and detailed Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal Report that is accurate, irrefutable, defensible, and descriptive. Our Certified Appraisal Report includes but is not limited to market conditions, economic conditions, photographs, model and serial numbers, and other descriptive information that will withstand scrutiny.

The Problem With Surface Level Information
Often times, the public relies on surface level information from an appraiser which does not give an indication as to the level of accuracy or competency. We are committed to preserving the public trust. The purpose of the “Code of Ethics & Competency” Appraiser Awareness Program is to protect the public from unsubstantiated or questionable machinery and equipment appraisals.

Our seal serves to alert the public to the documentation we know is necessary to prove that an appraiser is competent. This assures an appraisal will be substantiated, accurate, irrefutable, defensible, and will withstand scrutiny. If a machinery and equipment appraiser doesn’t meet these standards, your best option is to continue to look for an appraiser that does!
