Services / Appraisals

We are certified to appraise your machinery

Trader Machinery offers appraisal services for customers looking to discover fair market value for their machines.
All of our appraisal staff are CPPAG certified so that our appraisals match common market standards. Whether you have one machine or a wealth of machines to be appraised, our staff are able to timely and accurately provide reliable and defensible reports.

Our team is familiar with all of the following appraisal types:

 

Going Concern Value
A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency that a knowledgeable buyer would be willing to pay a knowledgeable seller for the assets in place, taking advantage of all leasehold and site improvements designed to facilitate their operation, with both the buyer and seller acknowledging that the assets must be sold and are and are being purchased ‘as is, where is’ with the intent of continuing the operation of the assets in the manner for which they were intended.

 

Fair Market Value
A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency to be realized for property in an exchange between a willing buyer and a willing seller, with equity to both, neither being under compulsion to buy or sell, and both parties fully aware of all relevant facts, as of the effective date of this appraisal report. Both the buyer and the seller acknowledge that the assets must be dismantled and removed at the buyer’s expense.

 

Orderly Liquidation Value
The estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency that the subject personal property could typically realize at a privately negotiated sale, properly advertised and professionally managed, by a seller obligated to sell over a three to six month time period, as of the effective date of this appraisal report. Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to ensure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis ‘as is, where is’ with the purchaser responsible for removal of the assets at their own risk and expense. Any deletions or additions to the assets appraised could change the psychological and/or monetary appeal necessary to attain the value(s) estimated.

 

Forced Liquidation Value
The estimated most probable price, expressed in terms of currency, that the subject personal property could typically realize at a properly advertised and conducted public auction sale, held under forced sale conditions and present day economic trends, as of the effective date of the appraisal report. The conclusions take into consideration location, difficulty of removal, condition, adaptability, specialization, marketability, overall appearance, and psychological appeal. Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to ensure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal basis ‘as is, where is’ with the purchaser being responsible for removal of the assets at their own risk and expense. Any deletions or additions to the assets appraised could change the psychological and/or monetary appeal necessary to attain the value(s) estimated.
