Asset managers are faced with difficult choices when it comes to selling used equipment or closing down a plant. Implementing the best marketing strategy to fulfill timing and sale requirements can be a daunting and time consuming task. That's why companies turn to National Equipment Appraisal for marketing advice in situation like these:
1. Complete Facilities – Plant Shutdown – Asset Divestitures
Assets sold in place and in operation generally yield the highest prices for used equipment. Buyers looking to expand operations or acquire complementary product lines pay more because they save time and money by eliminating installation and start up costs.
National Equipment Appraisal specializes in asset sales of entire operations. The company provides these services to owners of privately owned companies and to public companies interested in selling the assets of a division or discontinued operation. The firm's registered buyer database includes approximately 1,800 private equity groups, corporations and high wealth individuals looking to acquire facilities, both profitable and in distress. National Equipment Appraisal (through JMR Capital, Inc.) is a licensed real estate broker and conducts Bulk Sale transfers in California. The company cooperates with brokers across the United States.
2. Prime Asset Marketing
Operational consolidations, capacity upgrade and product line re-alignment frequently result in a company having excess or surplus "prime assets." These assets are usually in good - very good condition and have been maintained according to manufacturers' recommendations and guidelines. Truly saleable assets, these "surplus or idle" assets tie up working capital and require a fast and efficient marketing solution.
National Equipment Appraisal employs a Negotiated Sale Process designed to bring higher used equipment values.
Wholesale used equipment dealers buy used machinery and equipment, hold as inventory and resell at retail. Their profit is the difference between how well they purchase the item and its fair market value.
Retail Equipment Brokers represent equipment owners and sell equipment at its fair market value. They charge a commission when they sell the equipment.
National Equipment markets equipment to retail end-users. Its expert re-marketers employ multiple marketing techniques to increase market visibility and transactions are negotiated by an experienced broker. Clients engage National Equipment Appraisal on an exclusive basis, and maintain ownership of the equipment during the listing period or until sold.
