NDA Members carry out initial asset, stock & site appraisals every day of the week throughout the UK across a whole range of industry sectors from livestock to electrical stock, from fine art & antiques through to vehicles & plant & machinery. Often initial appraisals are carried out free of charge without obligation depending on the initial assessment work involved.
NDA is RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and NAVA (National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers) approved. NDA Members provide industry recognised valuations across almost every commercial sector and, most importantly, these valuations are underpinned by the UK's biggest Secondary Market barometer; 1,400 live and online auctions every year - more than 115 auctions a month throughout the UK.
Not only will the NDA tell you what your asset is worth (from aviation to antiques), we'll tell you what the market is paying for it right now based on UK wide reliable sales data across our network of 17 auction houses. Hundreds of clients ranging from Banks, Finance Houses, Insolvency Practitioners, Government Authorities & Private Clients rely on NDA members every day for such valuations to make informed disposal decisions on a wide range of inventories.
Whether it's 700 pallets of clearance stock, a fleet of haulage vehicles, a showroom of prestige cars, industrial plant & machinery or horse drawn carriages, the NDA has the means, reach, capabilities & logistics to recover assets of all shapes and sizes for clients and relocate them to over 98 acres of NDA secure premises. Asset recovery often affords greater preparation of sale, increased marketing lead time and subsequent auction sale from an established auction site resulting in higher NET realisations for clients.
