TAU’S expert service offers certified appraisals so that you will know and have confidence in what your equipment is worth, plus a guarantee to bring the highest dollar value that the market will bear when sold either directly or at auction.

You shouldn’t trust just anyone with determining the value of your medical equipment. Why? Determining the value for medical equipment should be done by a “qualified” and “Certified” professional: an Appraiser that has proven experience, professionalism, and most importantly, is certified.
Not all appraisal reports are created equal.
If you guess, rely on the word of a non-certified person, who may have a hidden agenda, or rely on a depreciation schedule, you should know that such valuations are not substantiated, can be inaccurate and are insufficient for securing financing.
