Office Equipment Appraisals – Which Appraisal Type Fits Your Needs?

Desktop appraisals are the most cost effective appraisal type and can be beneficial if your office equipment appraisal does not require that the furniture fixtures and equipment be personally viewed and inspected by the appraiser and will not need to meet requirements for tax purposes, banking matters or litigation.  A Desktop appraisal is just as it sounds—an appraisal report prepared entirely from the appraiser’s desk based upon information about the office equipment supplied by the client. Detailed information required from the client to prepare the proposal will include photographs of the equipment, manufacturers name, model numbers and other relevant details.

A full summary office equipment appraisal also utilizes detailed information such as photographs, model numbers and manufacturer names but all the information is appraiser gathered and the equipment is verified by a site inspection from the appraiser. A full summary office equipment appraisal can withstand scrutiny in any litigation matter or tax dispute and will fulfill any banking/SBA loan requirement.
