Desktop Appraisals

The most-used and most cost-effective of HeliValue$’ appraisal services, the “desktop” Fair Market Value (FMV) provides the fastest, simplest valuation for a single helicopter or an entire fleet. Documents such as current component status and, weight and balance reports are supplied by the client. The documentation is then analyzed at HeliValue$ headquarters by our team of analysts and ASA accredited appraisers. The final report is USPAP compliant and includes a complete description of our methodology, market conditions, and calculation worksheet that show how we arrived at the values provided in the report. Choose from: Current, Past or Projected Values of the following types: Fair Market Value, Orderly Liquidation Value or another premise that fits your needs.


Residual Values

Residual values are sold as part of the Enterprise Subscription. If you are already an Enterprise subscriber and have purchased a Residual Bundle, you may use them as part of your desktop appraisal. For customers without an Enterprise subscription, you may purchase residual values individually for $500 each or consider upgrading to an Enterprise subscription that will allow you to purchase residuals at a discounted rate of $600 for the first bundle of 10 and $1,600 per bundle after that.


Rush Fee - 25%

Valuations requiring completion in less than 7 business days for single Desktop Appraisal, or less than 10 business days for a single onsite may be subjected to a 25% surcharge depending on current workload and availability.


Onsite Asset Verification

Daily Rate: $2250 US         Travel Rate: $500 US          Travel Expenses: Incurred

In the current regulatory environment, a lender has stringent due diligence requirements to meet. HeliValue$ performs the necessary check on the equipment to determine its Fair Market Value and to assure the lender that the helicopter is as represented. With qualified onsite representatives throughout the world, asset verifications can be quickly arranged.


Parts Inventory Valuation

Report Fee: $2000 US        Line Item Fee: $6.25 per line

Along with our unique knowledge involving the whole helicopter, we also perform valuations for helicopter parts and equipment inventories. We can visit the warehouse and do a random sampling or simply work directly from the perpetual inventory. This report is most useful for large fleet operators and lending intuitions for the purpose of purchase price allocation, financing, and exit planning. Minimum of 300 line items required.


Betterment/Detriment Study

Please call for a quote

Used at lease termination, this study compares the beginning vs. ending, or contract vs. actual, component status of a leased helicopter. A betterment/detriment study provides the value delta between the two states to determine which party owes the other at the end of the lease period, and how much.
