Appraisals Overview

Most John Pye Auctions instructions start with an initial appraisal of asset or stock holdings, ranging across a variety of market sectors from Business and Luxury Assets to Retail, Property or Vehicles.

Due to the sheer size, volume, frequency and breadth of John Pye Auctions operations – across multiple asset and stock classes, industries, markets and regions – we are able to provide the widest and largest secondary market barometer of commercial sales data for clients.

This data is mined from a ‘coal face’ of over 650 online auctions per annum, generated from over 20 UK auction sites, all underpinned by our unique case management system, Assetline, which has captured auction sales data of in excess of 1.5m items sold by online auction per annum over a decade.

Many of our biggest case instructions started in this manner and eventually led to industry award recognition based on the reliable data produced and subsequent industry benchmark disposal project delivery.

To provide a suitable desktop appraisal we require a stock-list/manifest or asset register of the subject stock or assets. For high value and/or high volume assessments we may require the need to undertake a physical site visit. Asset registers and stock manifests are a useful starting point but need to be substantiated with physical appraisals of asset and stock checks to verify condition and grading.

Further to an appraisal, John Pye Auctions can provide a proposal for comprehensive disposal strategy of asset or stock marketing and sale, no matter how small or large the instruction maybe.

If you require a stock or asset appraisal you can contact the relevant John Pye Auctions department, whether for Retail stock, Luxury Assets, Vehicles, Property or Business Assets by completing our short enquiry form.
