Peace of mind from a name you can trust
With over hundreds of commercial equipment valuations completed throughout North America, in more than ten years, EastWind Business Solutions has the experience and Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA) certifications to ensure your equipment valuations are accurate and can stand up to any challenge.
Why EastWind is your best option
There is no substitute for a certified expert. Appraisals performed by uncertified sources like equipment dealers or auctioneers are often full of inaccuracies by relying on guesswork, book value, or even simply their word. Any of these methods can cause potential liability problems and will not hold up to scrutiny from the CRA, IRS, courts, lenders, attorneys, and others.
What you get from an appraisal report
Your Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraisal Report will contain substantiated, indisputable, defensible information you can rely upon. These reports are produced for a variety of circumstances, including:
Evaluation of insurance needs
Financing and leasing
Expert testimony for legal cases
What’s in the report?
EastWind’s assignment of value is based on extensive research, personal inspection, and contact with manufacturers and suppliers, to determine what your machinery and/or equipment is worth. You’ll receive a professionally-embossed, bound, and easy to use report that includes:
- Facts summary
