Appraisers and Appraisal Companies
We offer assistance to appraiser in need of expert opinions to assist with due diligence. We can evaluate entire plants or focus on individual pieces of equipment. We can assist in onsite inspections or work with the information and photos you provide.
If you're appraising a plant with plastics processes that you are unfamiliar with, call us in advance. We'll give you a one-on-one mini-seminar about the process and explain what information is necessary to gather for valuation purposes. We can tailor our fees and services to mirror what your needs and budget allow.
We also provide plastics machinery valuation seminars that can be given for small to large groups of appraisers. We can do an overview of all plastics processes or target specific industries. Seminars can be geared towards new appraisers who have never seen plastics processing equipment or can be more advanced for seasoned appraisers who would like an in-depth refresher course.

Appraisal Valuation Definitions
Fair Market Value - Removal: 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 any compulsion to buy or sell, and both parties fully aware of all relevant facts as of the effective date of this appraisal report. This assumes the buyer will remove the property.
Fair Market Value - In Place: 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 any compulsion to buy or sell, and both parties fully aware of all relevant facts, as installed for intended utilization, as of the effective date of this appraisal report.
Orderly Liquidation Value: The estimated gross amount, expressed in terms of money, that could be typically realized from a sale, as of a specific date, given a reasonable period to find a purchaser(s), with the seller being compelled to sell on an as-is/where-is basis.
Forced Liquidation Value (Auction Value): A professional opinion of the estimated most probable price expressed in terms of currency which could typically be realized at a properly advertised and conducted public auction sale, held under forced sale conditions and under present day economic trends, as of the effective date of the appraisal report. Conclusions taken into consideration are physical location, difficulty of removal, physical condition, adaptability, specialization, marketability, overall appearance and psychological appeal. Further, the ability of the asset group to draw sufficient prospective buyers to insure competitive offers is considered. All assets are to be sold on a piecemeal.
