What type of Appraisal do I need?

We offer On-site and Desktop Appraisals


All Equipment Appraisals require that three specific tasks be performed:

  1. Data Collection

  2. Research to find values

  3. Writing the Equipment Appraisal Report


For an On-site Equipment Appraisal, the appraiser will perform all three of the above tasks.


For a Desktop Equipment appraisal, the appraiser will rely on a third party (owner or client) to provide the Data Collection, the first task on the above list. This involves providing the appraiser with specific information for each of the items to be appraised individually.

There are cases when a Desktop Appraisal Report would not be appropriate


Both types of Appraisal Reports comply with the Uniform Standards of Uniform Appraisal Practice aka USPAP. 


How long does an Equipment Appraisal take?

This is specific to the Equipment Appraisal assignment.


On most small assignments, we can usually have the report completed within 3-7 days after we have received all of the data. Larger assignments may be 7 -14 days.


Please call or email us and we can give you a specific time to do your appraisal.
