Who should know their farm equipment value?

Knowing new and old farm equipment value through an ag equipment appraisal is important information for farm owners & managers, and farm equipment dealers.

Types of equipment appraisals

On-Site Farm Equipment Appraisal

The on-site appraisal is a more detailed & accurate way to determine used farm equipment value. Since no two pieces of used farm equipment values are the same, our farm equipment appraiser will travel to the equipment site to perform an assessment for an accurate determination of the farm equipment value. 

Our farm equipment appraiser will provide a professionally prepared and bound report that includes an explanation of the type of valuation approach utilize, the intended use of the appraisal, equipment descriptions, appraised value of each piece of equipment, comparable farm equipment used for valuation, and colored photos of the farm equipment. 

Here’s a sample of our on-site agricultural equipment appraisal.
