Today we’ll answer a few questions regarding the equipment appraisal process so you have a better idea of what to expect during the valuation process.


What is the purpose of equipment appraisals?


At its core, appraisals are educated opinions on fair market value. Asset appraisals serve a dual purpose: to inform fair market value, and to stand as a bench mark for how much you can re-sell the asset for. As mentioned above, appraisal values take into consideration a number of factors that will range from industry to industry, and from machine to machine.


What are prospective issues that could occur?


It is because appraisals are at best educated opinions on how much a given industrial asset should cost, that sometimes appraised value may not encompass the actual value of the asset.

Finding an appraiser with relevant industry experience offers more assurance than an appraiser who is not acquainted with the factors that affect market value for your industry.
