The Problem with Surface Level Information
When It Involves Your Machinery and Equipment…
Many attempts have been made to educate the public on how to protect themselves when it comes to providing accurate machinery and equipment values. Oftentimes, people rely on surface-level information from an appraiser which does not give an indication as to the level of accuracy or competency. Gulf Atlantic Consulting, Inc. is committed to preserving the public trust.
The purpose of the Code of Ethics & Competency Appraiser Awareness Program is to protect the public from unsubstantiated or questionable machinery and equipment appraisals. Our seal serves to alert the public to the documentation we know is necessary to prove that an appraiser is competent. This assures an appraisal will be substantiated, accurate, irrefutable, and defensible and will withstand scrutiny.
Gulf Atlantic Consultants, Inc. delivers
Certified Appraisals with 4 Strict Points Of Ethical Excellence
1. Ethical Obligations – Each Certified Appraisal is USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) Compliant.
2. Advocacy Only Of The Appraisal – We are an advocate only of the Appraisal, not of any person or entity which maintains our objectivity.
3. Certification – We have earned through the NEBB Institute, an industry leader of machinery/equipment appraisal, brokerage, and professional organization, the professional designation of Certified Machinery & Equipment Appraiser (CMEA).
4. Defensible Appraisal – Comprehensive and substantiated estimates of value that hold up to scrutiny with lenders, buyers, sellers, courts, CPAs, attorneys, and others.
If the appraiser you choose does not adhere to the 4 Strict Points, we would encourage you to look for one that does.
