You Should Know Who May Deliver An Unqualified   "Non-Certified"  Appraisal Report...

 Auctioneers
 
Do Auctioneers have a "hidden agenda"?  Maybe.  They may foresee an auction and deliver a value that is inconsistent with fair market value.
99.9% of Auctioneers who are called upon to deliver an Appraisal Report do not deliver a USPAP compliant Appraisal Report.  That means the ethics and reporting of values in a USPAP compliant format are not prevelant.  Therefore, the appraisal value will not hold up to scrutiny with the IRS, CPAs, courts, lenders, attorneys and others!
Dealers
 
Do Dealers have a "hidden agenda"?  Maybe.  They may foresee the purchase or sale and deliver a value that is inconsistent with fair market value.
99.9% of Dealers who are called upon to deliver an Appraisal Report are not certified because they do not see the need.  Their main focus is to sell and buy equipment not providing a USPAP compliant Report or certification.  Their value will not hold up to scrutiny with the IRS, CPAs, courts, lenders, attorneys and others!
 Is The Depreciation Schedule Accurate?
 
Clearly...No!  The Schedule is only good for depreciating the equipment and DOES NOT provide the fair market value for a piece of equipment.
 
 
What Sets Us Apart From All Of The Others?
 
CERTIFICATION
 
Certified Vs. Non-Certified...
That Is The Most Important Question You Can Ask.   
                    It's  A Question That Is Of The Utmost Importance To You. 
Be Sure You KNOW The Difference!
 
When it comes to equipment appraisal, you certainly don't want someone with a clipboard guessing at values.  You'll discover within the pages of our website why a CMEA (Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser), is your best solution.
 
It is important for you to know that the equipment appraiser 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.
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.
A Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser has received formal comprehensive training and successfully passed a 100 question written test and submitted a Summary Appraisal Report evaluated by a Board of Peers.
 
A CMEA Promotes The Code Of Ethics...
If Your Appraiser Is Not Certified And Does Not Uphold A Strict Code Of Ethics...
Your Best Option Is To Find One That Does!
 

We Demand Ethical Excellence From Machinery & Equipment Appraisers.  Therefore, the Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraisers at Cole Appraisal Solutions, Inc. comply with and uphold these 4 strict points...
