Housby Appraisers specialize in agriculture, construction, refuse, ready mix, and transportation equipment. From skid steers to excavators, service trucks to ready mix trucks, step vans to over-the-road tractors trailers, if it has tracks or wheels we can appraise it. No piece is too small or too big.

We offer Formal Appraisals, Desktop Appraisals, and Lease Residuals.


Formal Appraisals include physical inspections and assessments of specifications and condition. From a sampling of equipment to whole fleet valuation, we can customize the report to your needs.

Desktop Appraisals provide a faster method of valuation that relies on customer-provided specifications and condition reports.

Lease Residuals estimate value over the life of a lease. Residuals are calculated using a number of current factors – including, but not limited to, resale history, the economy, anticipated mileage/hours, and condition.


The most commonly requested premises of value are:

  • Fair Market Value (FMV) – Willing buyer and willing seller, both aware of all relevant facts with no compulsion to buy or sell.
  • Orderly Liquidation Value (OLV) – Willing buyer with seller under duress, both aware of all relevant facts and with some time constraints.
  • Forced Liquidation Value (FLV) – Willing buyer with seller compelled to sell under time constraints.


All appraisal reports comply with Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Call today for more information and pricing.
