Looking to Sell Your Equipment?

Appraisal Basics

What exactly is an appraisal? Why would I want one done? Who appraises my equipment? All of these are great questions that we encounter on a regular basis. An appraisal is a judgement of value that allows an owner to understand the worth of their equipment. You would want an appraisal completed if you are interested in finding out the depreciation of your equipment, understanding the value of your machinery, or if you are interested in refinancing a part of your company. We have a great group of certified equipment appraisers who will work on your appraisal. For more information about our equipment and tractor appraisals, click here.
