Experience, Knowledge, Visibility, and Accountability Throughout The Entire Disposition Process.

View Our Experience
Experience illustration


SVD has decades of experience guiding Companies, Workout Groups, Lending Institutions, Banks, and VC’s on how to properly monetize capital assets on the secondary market. We have conducted thousands of auctions for both complete plant/facility closures and surplus assets to the ongoing operations of large companies. We have successfully implemented capital asset management and disposition solutions into some of the largest companies in the world.

Trusted Advisors illustration

Trusted Advisors

At SVD, our interests are always aligned with our clients. Every project has different requirements and expectations. We take the time to fully understand the requirements and provide disposition proposals that ensure we will meet and execute on what is expected. We consider our clients to be our partners and we guide them accordingly. We treat all aspects of any disposition process as if we own the assets.

Inventory Tracking illustration

Visibility & Accountability

Our management tool SAM (Surplus Asset Management) provides our clients with asset tracking, complete control, and visibility both prior to their sale and financial reporting directly after.

Equipment Knowledge illustration

Equipment Knowledge & Know-How

Our experience spans dozens of industries and equipment classes. We have successfully sold hundreds of manufacturing plants which generated over a half billion dollars in revenue for our clients. Our core strength is in considering all complexities and challenges on each project, before we start. We understand the importance of meeting timelines and plan accordingly in order to exceed our client's expectations. Our Project Managers and Spec Writers are detail oriented, experienced professionals; they work with and oversee all aspects of our projects, from the start of each engagement until the final asset is removed. They also oversee and help manage all vendors including Hazmat, Electrical, Rigging and Cleaning.

Marketing illustration

Dynamic Marketing

Our in-house marketing team has developed an array of effective go-to marketing strategies that build high interest for each of our client's sales. Regardless of the industry or equipment class, we'll connect your assets to the purchase-intent audience and ensure that a competitive bidding environment is set. Our marketing team understands the objectives of our clients and works directly with the project managers to create the most effective marketing materials for every sale.

Flexible Compensation illustration

Flexible Compensation

As your partner, our priority is to always maximize your return on the secondary market for the assets we are selling. History has proven that this is done best by selecting a company that works on a commission basis, one that shares the common interest of working as hard as they can to recoup the highest returns—because collectively, we win together. We also understand that certain instances may require an outright purchase for the assets and/or facility—and we are readily available to accommodate that as well.
