Appraisals – Construction Equipment for Sale
Why are Appraisals Important?
The business and financial worlds have undergone constant change over the past few years. Financial institutions and business owners are demanding a heightened awareness of the values of their customers or their own assets. This data and knowledge it provides is crucial to help develop their strategies for growth and success. Current and accurate information is important to help deal with standard and accelerated depreciation, market value, bonding, insurance, and cash flow management.

I just wanted to send a brief note thanking you for all for your help with our recent appraisals. You and Matt Scalf have been a big help to us. Both of you have been very professional and a pleasure to work with. We are impressed with not only your turnaround time and content within the appraisals, but also your overall knowledge and expertise in giving us quality work within these very tough equipment appraisals of recent.
When we do run into any trouble or have the need of appraising any more equipment you will be at the top of our list. Thank you again for all your hard work.

I am pleased with the quality of work and the timeliness of both projects...Corbitt & Son's Construction
I wanted to send you this brief noting thanking you for your help on appraising and liquidating my assets earlier this year. I am pleased with the quality of work and the timeliness of both projects. The accuracy of the appraisal helped make my decision. You and your staff did an excellent job structuring the auction to provide us with the best chance of a successful result. We understand the limited market on our boring machines and were very pleased with your marketing to pull in the right numbers. As always, I found everyone at Don Smock Auction Company to be extremely professional and great to work with, and look forward to engaging your firm in the future of appraisal and auction work.Stephen L.

Thank you and your company for the outstanding job in helping us sell our equipment... First Farmers Bank & Trust
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for the outstanding job in helping us to sell our equipment at your recent auction. I know you had to go to great lengths to recover much of the equipment. I know your repossessions efforts were under many less than desirable conditions. The weather was miserable, and I know several of the individuals you dealt with were not excited to see you. Your ability to negotiate the locations and retrieval of several of our larger pieces of equipment was terrific. I am confident we would not have located all of these pieces without your assistance.
Although we prefer not to have the need to repossess equipment in the future, you can rest assured you will be called upon if needed. Thank you again for your efforts.
