USPAP Equipment & Business Asset Appraisal Services
NorCal Valuation Inc. provides comprehensive USPAP Machinery and Equipment Appraisal Reports for attorneys, law firms, corporations and CPA firms. Our equipment appraisal reports are structured to the scope of your specific project. We provide independent and unbiased services with the highest level of responsiveness to your particular equipment and business asset valuation needs, including buy/sell agreements or disputes and ad valorem tax appeals.
Although we work with auctioneers and equipment dealers for market research and trends, we are not an auction firm, equipment dealers or jobbers and we never take a financial interest in anything that we appraise.
Equipment Appraisal Reports
Our USPAP compliant machinery and equipment appraisal reports include physical inspection of items appraised with descriptions and relevant serial numbers, pictures and individual values for the items in question. Your equipment appraisal report will explain the context of the equipment appraisal and will have detailed explanation of the terms used; the report will be complete unto itself and be fully applicable to its intended use and intended user(s). Your machinery and equipment appraisal report will be professionally researched using an appropriate variety of sources and techniques.

Fees & Payment
Appraisal fees are directly related to the time involved to complete the equipment appraisal assignment. We only bill for the time expended. Before beginning the equipment appraisal process, we provide a free consultation of your equipment appraisal needs and an estimated fee quote. We will discuss with you the required scope of work, carefully review your specific situation, and assess precisely which appraisal services you need. You will save money by getting the exact machinery and equipment appraisal you need.
Our professional services agreement will specify either a fee range or a not-to-exceed price based on the estimated time to complete the specified equipment appraisal task. We require a signed written agreement and a retainer to begin the equipment and machinery appraisal, with balance paid upon delivery of the equipment appraisal report.
