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 recently auctioned several pieces of construction equipment with James G. Murphy Co. after consideration of several auction companies in the region.  The companies representative, was fair in his assessment of the market value of items I placed for auction and honored all promises made during the auction preparation process.  Ultimately, my expectations were exceeded as my equipment sold for well over the estimate. Should I need the services of an auction company again, I would not hesitate to call James G. Murphy Co."
