The Maynards Valuation Model

a. Review of assets and scope of project.

Maynards senior management reviews the proposal, according to the client’s specifications, and assigns the appraiser with the highest level of relevant experience in the industry to begin the project. Maynards appraisal experts have earned the Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) with the American Society of Appraisers and Certified Equipment Appraiser (CEA) with the Association of Machinery & Equipment Appraisers professional designations.

b. Assets appraised: Equipment Value.

To determine the value of equipment, Maynards accredited professionals appraise the assets in question, whether via desktop, on-site or at multiple production locations around the world, and create a detailed asset and condition list along with recovery values for the machinery and equipment in question. Maynards maintains consistent communication with the client throughout the appraisal process, answering any questions that might arise and clarifying the valuation process and terms as needed.  

c. Market research.

Maynards valuation team review extensive internal and external databases for comparable asset sales, examine Maynards’ historical auction and liquidation sales, and perform industry specific research related to the assets in question. Our researched values are then verified through confidential discussion with dealers, original equipment manufactureres, and comparable online sales records. All the information is collected and examined to produce the final USPAP compliant appraisal report. To ensure clarity and that each file receives expert oversight, Maynards’ senior appraisers regularly peer-review reports before submission to clients.
