Located throughout the US, the For What It’s Worth Appraisals, Inc team performs physical inspections of assets to find property identifiers, determine location, and assess physical condition.
We offer meticulous attention to detail for reconciling to asset listings, recording identification of the property, and reporting asset specifications that contribute to value.
While on site, we take photographs (with permission) to support our condition determinations. These photos also provide additional reference information for our research team to locate sales comparables.
Why have us do your asset tagging?
We can provide asset tagging services alongside our equipment inspections to save you time and money. Asset tagging enables you to have better control of your assets by tracking quantity, location, aging, and other data. Businesses usually tag assets that are mobile, insured, taxable, capitalized, commonly stolen, or are used by various departments.
Asset tagging provides quick identification to distinguish your property from an independent contractor’s tools or leased property.
Tracking assets is beneficial for reducing tangible personal property tax by accurately reporting disposals prior to the tax effective date. See our Ad Valorem Tax page for more information.
Listen To What Our Clients Are Saying About Our Machinery And Equipment Appraisals…
As the Finance lead on a $1M+ acquisition of a high tech company located in Clearwater, FL we needed an independent asset valuation of the acquisition. Based in Atlanta, I researched firms through the internet and came across Tammy with high recommendations. We contracted her to perform the work. She was on-site within days and the job was completed in less than a week. Her valuation report, along with photos and rationale, were accepted by our outside auditors (KPMG) without any questions. The auditors complimented the professionalism and completeness of the valuation report. I would contract her again when needed and highly recommend her.
Tammy was on time and very easy to work with.
Tammy provided an in depth equipment appraisal with multiple approaches for a national client with multiple locations. It was a complex job and it was completed on time in a professional manner. When my client had questions, Tammy was able to back up her valuations to the satisfaction of all parties.
Tammy provided valuable collateral and detail information to help the bank understand its actual collateral position on various items. Her timely and accurate report contributed to a successful outcome for the bank and the customer. I plan to use her in the coming months on new projects. Her positive attitude and timely reports were very helpful.
As a fellow Accredited Senior Appraiser (in business valuation), I work closely with equipment appraisers on a regular basis. I’ve recommended Tammy to many of my clients on several occasions and I (and my clients) have been very pleased with her detail, accuracy and overall level of professionalism. I would recommend her to anyone requiring an equipment appraisal.
Tammy is very professional, delivers a solid product on ti me every time. We highly recommend her and her company to other lenders in our industry.
I hired Tammy to appraise equipment in a foreclosure of a fire sprinkler construction company. Her work was detailed, precise, and timely. Should I need equipment appraised in the future, she will be my 1st call.
I and other members of my organization have utilized Ms. Blackburn’s services to complete several different appraisal assignments. Ms. Blackburn is very professional, highly skilled and provides great service. We have always been very pleased with the work she has performed for us, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a solid equipment appraisal.
Tammy was able to appraise used fitness equipment for me. Her valuation was spot on! I would definitely hire her again.
