There are a myriad of reasons a business owner, CPA, attorney, insurance underwriter, lenders, leasing agents, business brokers, farm credit managers and others absolutely require the professional expertise of an independent third party Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraisal prepared by only a Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA).

Can you really rely on a guess, book value, the word of a non-certified person, or auctioneer who may have a “hidden agenda”? The answer is “NO”. You cannot. Why not? Relying on a guess, book value, auctioneer, or the word of a non-certified person is inaccurate and will not withstand scrutiny.

Reasons Why You Need A Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisal

  • Business Owners need an Appraisal for insurable value, selling, financing, expansion, and strategic growth.
  • CPA’s need a Certified Appraisal because the IRS requires a Certified Appraisal by a Certified Appraiser! A Certified Appraisal is also needed when helping their clients convert from a C to S Corporation, Estate and Gift Planning, Trusts, Sarbanes-Oxley, and FASB 141/142.
  • Bankers and Lenders need an Appraisal in support of loan and lease decisions to substantiate and collateralize a loan. Especially the Small Business Administration’s new SOP’s that require a “qualified” equipment appraisal.
