An appraisal is a process the appraiser goes through to determine the value of a piece of equipment. An appraisal is done by an interested party according to specific standards for the type of asset being appraised.

Our appraisers will appraise just one machine or an entire plant with varied equipment! We can also provide information on your capital equipment and our Free Referral Service will find the best match for your machinery value needs.
