Brumbaugh Appraisals is committed to preserving the public trust inherent in the appraisal process. The purpose of the Code Of Ethics And Competency Appraiser Awareness Program is to protect the public from unsubstantiated or questionable machinery and equipment appraisals.

This assures an appraisal will be substantiated, accurate, irrefutable, defensible and will withstand all scrutiny.
