At Automatics & Machinery Co., Inc., we have an AMEA Certified Equipment Appraiser on
staff. The importance of clearly understanding equipment values has never been greater
than in today's highly competitive market. We provide accurate, confidential and timely
appraisals for many business needs.
We take several factors into account when evaluating equipment, including manufacturer,
make, model, year of manufacture, accessories, optional equipment, market demand, market
availability, obsolescence, current economic conditions, and, of course, machine(s)
The fees charged for our appraisal services are NOT based on a percentage of the reported
values, rather, they are based on the amount of research involved, plus any travel or
necessary expenses. We appraise coordinated appraisals and co-appraise equipment located
throughout North America and can arrange for appraisal of assets overseas as well.
Appraisals are requested for several reasons:
Mergers, Buyouts, Acquisitions and Auctions
Estate Planning and Settlement
