Factory construction plans were put on pause. The equipment that was pre-purchased and stored for future expansion was now non-useful surplus and taking up considerable space required for something else. There was less than a 6-month deadline before the equipment would have to be scrapped.
ARCA acted immediately to accurately evaluate the market value of the equipment and the required logistical efforts to complete the project. The cost to relocate this equipment outweighed its value. Although brand new, the equipment would have been destined for a scrap yard. ARCA appraisal revealed that taking over the client’s facility was the best route.
Within 30 days, ARCA dispatched a team to a new city and took over operation of the facility that stored the surplus equipment. All 400 pieces of equipment were properly documented, inspected, weighed and pictured for resale into the market. All progress was efficiently documented for the client’s peace of mind.
Before the deadline, ARCA found a buyer for every last piece of equipment. The sales, service, and logistics were hands-off for the client. The financial gain from this equipment was considerably larger than the scrap or liquidation income and the client regained full-use of their facility before expected.
The client needed very flexible results, fast. ARCA was able to deliver these results in the blink of an eye. Traditional surplus liquidation would not have proved sufficient in this case.
