BEWARE Of An Uncertified Appraisal...
What Sets The Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisers (CMEAs) Apart From All The "Clip Board Guys"?
You NEED to know the difference between "Certified Vs. Non-Certified" Equipment Appraisers
Be Sure You KNOW The Difference!
When it comes to valuing your equipment to determine its value, you absolutely do not want someone who is not trained and experienced in applying the three appraisal methodologies used to determine and substantiate equipment values. In other words, you do not want a "clipboard guy" guessing at values. After all, lenders, IRS, courts, CPAs, attorneys and others all require a "Certified Equipment Appraisal by a Certified Equipment Appraiser".
Your best solution for a substantiated, USPAP compliant, and Certified Equipment Appraisal is to contact a CMEA who will deliver a defensible estimate of value that will withstand scrutiny. Therefore, you need an Advocate of the appraisal ... Not of any person or entity! A CMEA is the experienced and expert professional of determining the value based on comprehensive data and substantiation. The CMEA you assign to the scope of work you need performed has the knowledge, experience, ethics, and certification to provide you with a "Certified" Machinery & Equipment Appraisal Report by a Certified Equipment Appraiser.
A CMEA upholds the ethics and guidelines of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice USPAP), promulgated and authorized by Congress as the Source of Appraisal Standards and Appraiser Qualifications.
