Types of Appraisals

Desktop Equipment Appraisals

Desktop Equipment Appraisals have the same certification level, are court tested, substantiated and irrefutable just as an onsite appraisal with 2 differences:

  1. We ask you to collect and provide us with basic information that we need to do an appraisal such as the Make, Model, Year/Age, Condition, etc.

  2. Since the appraiser does not collect the information on the equipment, there is a lower cost.

Desktop appraisals are widely used and accepted and will provide you with the same equipment values as you would receive with an Onsite Appraisal. Our Desktop Appraisals are defensible, court-tested, and have been used by Banks, the IRS, and the SBA.


When is a Desktop Appraisal is NOT Recommended?

  • When no one is available to collect the information on the equipment

  • When 3rd party verification of the equipment is required


On-Site Appraisal

The appraiser will visit the location where the equipment is located, visually inspect the equipment and record the necessary information. Then the appraiser will still research the items to be appraised and write the appraisal report.


Not sure which type of appraisal you need? We can discuss it with you.
