What Is a Metalworking Equipment Appraisal?
A metalworking equipment appraisal is an unbiased opinion of value that is accurate, defensible, and completed by an accredited, qualified professional. Our machine shop equipment appraisals are completed by an accredited equipment appraiser of the American Society of Appraisers and certified as compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Sencer Appraisal Associates provides USPAP-compliant equipment appraisal services of metalworking and machine shop equipment and machinery across the United States.
Equipment used for fabricating, cutting, shaping and finishing varies widely in age, capabilities, and manufacturer reputation, and will vary widely in value. Sencer Appraisal’s metalworking equipment appraisers understand the factors that affect value and will work to provide an accurate machine shop equipment valuation.
With the industry valued at $35 billion, machine shop equipment appraisals are frequently requested for use in asset-based lending, litigation, tax assessments, purchase price allocations, and other financial and management matters.

Metalworking Equipment Appraisal Process
Our initial task is to identify the purpose of your appraisal. Then we collect all the essential facts and information about your equipment, including manufacturer, manufacturer, model number, serial number, hours, specifications, and condition.
Identifying the type of valuation definition is a crucial part of the process. Your appraisal may need fair market value, orderly liquidation value, forced liquidation value, fair value, or another definition of value.
We carry out a complete on-site inspection or uninspected desktop analysis, before producing an accurate and unbiased opinion of your metalworking equipment’s value.
We deliver you an accurate and independent appraisal document that meets and applicable IRS, Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), GAAP, International Valuation, or U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) requirements, and is certified as compliant with USPAP.
