Keith Machinery Corp.

Appraisal Services

No other company has our combination of longevity, performance, and "A to Z" capabilities


Appraisals are a large portion of our business.  We perform these appraisals not only for Machinery and Equipment, but also for Real Estate, Inventories, Business Enterprise, etc.  Our appraisals are used by major banks, lenders, and businesses worldwide. We specialize in the Pharmaceutical, Nutraceutical, Chemical, Cosmetic, Food, Paint, Ink, and Paper industries. 


We are regularly called on to “partner” with appraisal firms who rely on us for our industry insight and knowledge as daily market maker; including up to the minute market condition.  When conducting an appraisal, it is not sufficient to simply identify an asset. Proper valuation comes from understanding the intricacies of the equipment and recognizing their functions within the business. With decades of experience, Keith Machinery’s experts appraise machinery and equipment across more than 100 industry segments.  Our appraisals are fully compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and these appraisals can also include the liquidation costs (Net Appraisal).  Our range of experience includes the following concepts of value:

  • Auction Sale Value (Forced Liquidation)
  • Orderly Liquidation Value
  • Orderly Liquidation Value in Place
  • Fair Market Value
  • Fair Market In Place (Insurance Value)
  • Replacement Value New


The strength of our database, combined with the unparalleled field experience of our appraisal team, results in a well-documented, thoroughly supported appraisal report that can be relied upon to make business decisions.  Keith Machinery is equipped to offer our clients appraisal reports tailored to meet their individual specifications, timelines and budgets.

In addition to appraising asset values, Keith Machinery provides expert advice on surplus asset recovery solutions.  We organize and execute programs from “A to Z”, including marketing campaigns, consignments, liquidations, auctions, rigging, shipping, accounting, and after-sale logistics.
