Huisman Auctions, Inc. specializes in professional appraisals in addition to our exceptional auction liquidation services. By combining our auction liquidation and appraisal services, we are able to serve our clients in the best ways possible.
Our appraisals are typically based on Auction Liquidation Value, which, in reality, is considered a true fair market value, not to be confused with a “fire sale” liquidation. We will also often do a Value in Place appraisal for many of our clients, when it is requested. We regularly monitor our own auctions as well as many auctions around the country, which gives our appraisers the most up to date knowledge of values. Thus, our appraisals are timely, accurate and most importantly supportable.
Our professional appraisals are based on these crucial elements:
- A complete and up to date database of recent auctions, both our own and others around the country. This helps us stay abreast of current market trends for the most up to the minute information on values.
- Intimate knowledge of the marketplace, the realities of the buy-sell equation and the probability that the assets can be converted into a specific value amount. This is all based on the base experience of our more than qualified appraisers.
- Respect for the professional appraisal function as a specific science, not a supposition. We realize that accuracy is vital and that is portrayed in every appraisal we perform.
Our professional appraisals serve all manner of business and financial needs. We perform concerning mergers, acquisitions, asset-based financing, insurance, financing and current value accounting and inventory.
We specialize in many different fields including, but certainly not limited to:
- Business Valuations
- Commercial Equipment & Vehicles
- Construction Equipment
- Personal Property
Our appraisers hold the designation of GPPA (Graduate Personal Property Appraiser). We also are certified as USPAP qualified, which means we follow and have good knowledge of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. Combined, we have more than 60 years of experience in the auction and appraisal industries. We work day in and day out with the values of many different assets and are continually attending education conferences and seminars in order to serve you better. This is not just a job for us, it is a career that we know and love. We have several certified appraisers on staff and we are here to serve you.
