There are many types of green businesses, but customers rarely realize doing business with Commercial Industrial Liquidation has a very green aspect.  Every item we stock is eliminating the potential of it ending up in a landfill and the re-use by the buyer eliminates another of the same item being manufactured, which conserves natural resources.

We also take pride in what we call 'Bought and Sold in the USA'.  Although many of the goods we buy and sell were not originally produced in the USA, when you buy from us you are technically buying a good that was bought in the USA from hard working Americans that create jobs and spend profits right here in the communities we live.  The buyer also recognizes great savings because of our rock bottom pricing on quality goods that help grow their business.

In today's global economy it's easy for these perspectives to be overlooked.  Commercial Industrial Liquidation takes great pride in operating with a focus on Reducing, Reusing, Recycling, and Refurbishing to preserve the environment and maximize value.  We hope you will also find a way to institute similar concepts into the operation of your business.

Wishing Your Business All The Best!
A revaluation of fixed assets is a technique to accurately describe the true value of the capital goods a business owns.  This is distinguished from planned depreciation, where the recorded decline in value of an asset is tied to its age.  

The purpose of revaluation is to bring into the books the fair market value of fixed assets.  It is commonplace for accounting methods to use maximum depreciation allowed by law.  This in turn will reflect fixed asset values that may be far below fair market value.  (Note: There are many accounting specifics that must be considered when upward or downward asset value adjustments are made)

When seeking a small business loan, lenders are concerned with the fixed asset collateral available that they can hold.  When approaching a lender using fixed asset value calculations that are derived for accounting and tax purposes, the business may be losing a significant value in the overall asset figure.  Using a revaluation or business asset appraisal, the borrower is able to accurately reflect current fair market value, which in most circumstances is substantially higher.

The revaluation appraisal method employs technical experts to carry out a detailed examination of the assets with a view to determining their fair market value.  Just a few of the factors that are considered are the date of purchase, extent of past use, type of asset, future demand, and availability of repair parts.

Revaluation of assets is a great tool in gaining approval for small business financing.  It is also beneficial to learn the fair market value for a business asset that is to be sold, to conserve adequate funds for replacement of fixed assets at the end of their useful lives, and to negotiate fair price for assets when undergoing a merger or being acquired by another company.

The process:

With over 15 years in the business of buying and selling business assets of all kinds, we are uniquely capable of providing accurate valuation of assets spanning all segments of the economy.  Our historical records and day to day sales activities ensure you receive the most accurate appraisal available.  We are experts in the field and have served clients ranging in size from sole proprietorship's to large corporations.

We begin the process by systematically inventorying the assets.  Thorough research is completed taking all aspects into account.  The finished appraisal report is provided in both electronic and hard copy along with a picture library of the assets numbered so that they correspond with the line item numbers on the report itself.  We work quickly to complete each project and provide the finalized appraisal in a timely manner.

Each appraisal project is quoted on the specific scope of the client's needs and the overall extent of the assets to be appraised.  We proudly offer the most competitive rates in the industry and will provide an upfront quote for all associated fees. 

A common question we hear is...what is the difference between what Commercial Industrial Liquidation does for clients and what auction services do.  There is a simple and complex answer to these issues.  The simple answer is NO, we do not facilitate auctions of any kind.  Very simply we choose to provide a consistent result for our clients that auctions cannot.

With the ever expanding internet, online auctions have become more common.  The primary reason an online auction may seem appealing is the extent of the audience, in theory anyone with an internet connection is a potential bidder.  The complexities come in when you consider that first the auction facilitator must have a website that already has a lot of traffic ("the audience") to have potential of garnering a fair sale price for the seller.  Secondly, auctions tend to bring much lower sale prices simply because the buyer has little to no personal interaction and the actual number of bidders on any certain item or lot tends to be very limited.  Overall, an auctioneer has very little invested in the process, they simply make a percentage of the sale and have little accountability for the outcome as a whole.

At Commercial Industrial Liquidation we are a full service company.  Not only do we have the expertise to determine the current market value of your asset, we also employ a process that assures we exceed the expectations of both the buyer and the seller.  You can expect much better returns when selling through the many options we offer clients.  You can also be assured that we are knowledgeable about the products we sale, and we take pride in that.

Auctions may have their place, but the large majority of small businesses, corporations, and individuals are better served with our hands on services.  Everything from asset appraisals, secure storage, re-deploying assets, complete buyout, bank and asset lender recovery and liquidation, facilitation of sales at your facility, and overall consulting to determine the best method to achieve the highest return.

Whether you are faced with growing pains, downsizing, or going out of business...for the best returns avoid the uncertainty of auctions and utilize someone that goes above and beyond to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
