Equipment Appraisal Services

JGM has been conducting appraisals since 1970. In the last five years alone we have conducted over 800 appraisals with a value in excess of 500 million dollars.

We have four primary appraisers on our staff all with at least fifteen years of appraisal experience.  Our lead appraisers are also auctioneers. Our experience as auctioneers gives us a leg up on our competitors. JGM’s auctioneering experience enables us to provide accurate market analysis in an ever-changing resale market. In many cases when we complete an appraisal we continue to work with the customer as an auctioneer. As appraisers and auctioneers, we have instant feedback for comparison purposes as we auction many of the same types of items that we appraise. Auction values are a very valuable monitoring tool. From one piece to a complete facility, our appraisers are able to provide you with an accurate valuation.

JGM conducts the following types of appraisals:

    -Fair Market

    -Orderly liquidation

    -Forced liquidation

The type of equipment we appraise includes, but is not limited to, the following:

"I wanted to put into writing how much your effort, along with all those at James G. Murphy, meant to me in the sale of my equipment at your auction.  After over 44 years in business, the decision to move in another direction was not easy, however your honest evaluation and up front open communication made the difficult process a bit easier to handle. I appreciate the time you all took in making me feel comfortable with whatever decision I came to, assuring me that James G. Murphy would do all that it could to make the sale of my equipment a success. Thanks again to you and all those involved at James G. Murphy for making me feel that you were treating my equipment as if it were your own."
