WHY GOOD
APPRAISALS
MATTER!

I as a C.P.A. have a number of clients that need to borrow money from financial institutions and most will need an appraisal of their equipment before the financial institution can make the loan. I have found Flexible Machine Systems Inc (FMSI) to be very fair and accurate on the valuations they have prepared for my clients. I would highly recommended FMSI and Todd Wellens if you have need to know the value of your manufacturing equipment.
