Desktop Appraisal

About this report:

Desktop Appraisal is a type of machinery and equipment appraisal that is conducted without an on-site physical inspection of the assets. Instead, the appraiser relies on available data, documentation, photographs, and information provided by the client or third-party sources to assess the value of the equipment. This appraisal method is commonly used when a physical inspection is not feasible or when time and cost considerations make it impractical to conduct an on-site visit.
