What qualifications and experience do your appraisers possess?

Our team of appraisers consists of highly qualified professionals who are experts in machinery and equipment appraisal. All of our appraisers are Equipment Certified Appraisers (ECA) from the Institute of Equipment Valuation. Each appraiser has undergone specialized training in valuation principles and possess in-depth knowledge of different markets and industries. With a proven track record of delivering accurate valuations, you can rely on our appraisers to provide trustworthy and well-supported conclusions.

What types of appraisals do you offer for machinery and equipment?

BizWorth offers two types of machinery and equipment appraisals: Desktop Appraisals and Comprehensive Appraisals.

Desktop Appraisals: A Desktop Appraisal is conducted without a physical on-site examination of the equipment. Instead, the appraiser relies on available data, documentation, photographs, and information provided by the client or third-party sources. They use industry databases and publications to obtain relevant market data and analyze the equipment's specifications, age, condition, and usage history. The appraiser's expertise and experience play a crucial role in accurately estimating the equipment's value based on the available information. While a Desktop Appraisal can be cost-effective and efficient, it has limitations due to the lack of a physical examination, which may affect its accuracy.

Comprehensive Appraisals: A Comprehensive Appraisal is a more extensive assessment that involves an on-site physical examination of the machinery and equipment. During the examination, the appraiser reviews the assets, verifies their condition, and gathers additional data to support the valuation process. They assess factors like equipment functionality, maintenance records, and any unique features that could influence its value. In combination with comparable market data and their expertise, the appraiser provides a thorough and precise valuation. Comprehensive Appraisals are commonly used for asset-backed loans, insurance purposes, legal disputes, and other scenarios where a detailed evaluation is required.

How do you ensure confidentiality and unbiased appraisals?

At BizWorth, we place utmost importance on confidentiality and unbiased appraisals as essential elements of our professional practices. Our commitment to ethical standards ensures strict confidentiality of all client information and appraisal details.
