At Gulf Coast Machinery LLC, we have Certified members of the Association of Machinery and Equipment Appraisers (AMEA) on staff to provide accurate appraisals of your equipment. When you contract for a machinery appraisal with a member of the Association of Machinery and Appraisers (AMEA), you know you are dealing with an accredited or certified appraiser whose profession is machinery and equipment. We have earned the right to display the AMEA seal and formulate reliable values of machinery on a daily basis. As AMEA members, our appraisal reports comply with USPAP and our appraisers maintain their continuing education as required. Whether you need an appraisal in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, and Tennessee or in a different region of the United States, we can help you with your needs.

Appraisals are requested for several reasons:

  • Plant/Equipment Valuation
  • Re-Financing
  • Liquidations
  • quipment/Plant(s) Sale
  • Mergers, Buyouts, Acquisitions and Auctions
  • Insurance Purposes
  • Estate Planning and Settlement
  • Litigation


We are involved in the buying and selling of used machinery on a daily basis. This professional activity in the machine and equipment marketplace gives our appraisers first-hand understanding of the dynamic economic swings in the industry which influence machinery sales. This marketplace insight, combined with our membership in the Machinery Dealers National Association, is your assurance of both professional and ethical appraisals since we subscribe to both the AMEA and MDNA Codes of Ethics. AMEA Appraisers are required to pass examinations and participate in on-going education and training, a qualification many other companies cannot match.

Furthermore, we fully understand the implications of an appraisal in the marketplace and can provide professional evaluations of entire plants, production lines or single machines. We can further advise as to which method of evaluation will best fit your business needs: fair market value, new replacement cost value, orderly liquidation value or auction value. Our fees are not based on the valuation numbers achieved, but on the amount of time & research necessary to give you the accurate values of your machinery & equipment. Some of the things we consider in this process include including manufacturer, make, model, year of manufacture, accessories, optional equipment, market demand, market availability, obsolescence, current economic conditions, and, of course, condition of the assets.

If you are seeking a qualified opinion as to value when lending, buying, selling or insuring machinery and equipment, be sure you are getting the most professional service available. Contact our Certified AMEA Appraiser to ensure you are getting the best service possible.
