For busy professionals it is increasingly difficult to keep up with the assessment and valuation of capital assets. Frequently, value is estimated based on opinions of a variety of individuals who do not have access to all the information necessary to determine the “true” value of equipment. Therefore, value may be under- or over- estimated. Understanding how important this information is to you, I.R.A.Y. Companies is pleased to offer professional appraiser services. Our Certified Appraiser Services are laddered and can be customized to suit your individual needs.
I.R.A.Y. Companies is one of the few companies in the United States with a GPPA Certified Appraiser Team specializing in heavy equipment. Our Certified Appraiser Services are available across the upper Midwest. With years of experience, we offer professional, timely, accurate, and affordable services for effective management of your equipment and machinery.Appraisal services

A1 Excavating Inc (Bloomer, WI)
“ I had never given much thought to hiring a professional appraiser before I was referred by a friend and current client of theirs. I was blown away by Ray’s equipment knowledge and completely satisfied from start to finish. Everything went just as I had hoped. I would definitely recommend them for their services. ”
Truck World Inc., Eldoron Truck & Equipment, and Eldoron Truck Parts (Wittenburg, WI)
“ My wife and I travel to MN every auction and have never missed a single one since IRAY opened its doors. I have always been satisfied with my purchases and will continue to do business with Ray. ”
McBride Inc. (Stacy, MN)
“ I first decided to come to IRAY Auctions when I heard they had scrap to be purchased. I found out how awesome the crew is there, and how good the sales were. "IRAY is good people. ”
Abfalter Brothers Concrete (Elk River, MN)
“ I've been working with IRAY for over 10 years. The guys work hard and aggressively at getting the best pricing for my equipment. I would recommend them. ”
Talk Inc. (Sauk Centre, MN)
“ This was our first time participating in an IRAY auction and we wanted to send a quick note back saying thank to everyone over there. It was easy and quick to preview the equipment ahead of time. We participated in the auction online … That was also simple and user friendly. And equally as important, the guys outside were incredibly helpful and easy to work with when picking the items up this morning. We participate in many different auctions and this experience was by far one of our best. We look forward to participating in future auctions and appreciate everyone who made this an enjoyable process for us as the buyers. ”
Kinetic Leasing (Fargo, ND)
“ We’ll be watching for future IRAY Auctions - you guys are great to work with! ”
In regards to IRAY holding the Dec auction indoors “ Wow, you're kidding me, you mean I don't have to stand out there in the cold?! I can sit inside where it's warm and BID? Wow. Whoever came up with that... It's a really good idea. ”
First Pacific Funding (Bothell, WA)
“ What a difference working with good people makes. I deal with vendors nationwide. I have hopes that one day dealing with all of them is this easy. IRAY makes it happen very seamlessly. From top to bottom smooth as silk. This is how its supposed to be done. Believe me when I say 'There is a difference'.... ”
North Central Auto (Saint Cloud, MN)
“ I have sold with IRAY before and have known Ray for 30 years. I have had good experiences selling with IRAY. Ray gets the job done ”
Zerk Trucking LLC (Pierz, MN)
“ I am very likely to recommend IRAY to others, including colleagues and friends. I've taken advantage of both their quarterly Heavy Equipment, Truck, & Trailer Auctions as well as their Offsite Auctions. I love the staff attitude and customer service I am greeted with every time I go. I have no complaints about this company and look forward to doing further business with them. ”
“ I have bought and sold at IRAY before and I have always had a good experience with both. ”
North Central Auto (Saint Cloud, MN)
“ I used the online bidding for IRAY’s September 11th auction in 2015. It was an overall great experience. I enjoyed that I could watch in real time and hear the lady ‘yep’ for me whenever I clicked to bid. It was nice that I could also see what was coming up next and also what had already been sold. This makes it much easier to bid when business is busy and I can’t make it to the auction. Definitely am looking forward for the December auction so I can sit down and play with the buttons again. ”
Morrel Trucking (Elk River, MN)
“ I've been doing business with IRAY for 8 years. I buy and sell equipment. I am satisfied with doing business with IRAY. I liked the 6/6/14 sale as it was a bigger one than IRAY has had in awhile. ”
