Hymans undertakes refinancing valuations for some of Australia’s pre-eminent finance companies, and we are panel members for a number of banks and institutions. Our accurate data collection techniques mean that financiers can rely on our data when registering assets in the PPSR.

Family Law

Hymans can help navigate the complexities of family law negotiations by providing detailed and precise valuations. Whether the case involves business, plant and equipment or home contents and chattels, we provide timely and accurate reports on behalf of sole parties or as a single expert witness appointed by both sides.

We customise our report format to suit your specific requirements. Our experienced valuers are able to appear in court as an expert witness for an hourly fee.


At Hymans, we have decades of experience in the insolvency industry, and our team on the ground understands the specific time pressures and sensitivities involved in the insolvency and pre-insolvency space. Our reports are sent out on time and within budget, and our experienced senior valuers are always happy to attend creditor meetings to provide advice.

Common Questions

What is the Hymans turnaround time on plant and equipment valuations?

The turnaround time of a valuation depends on the size and purpose of the project, valuation methodology, access to the equipment, and available research in the market. For example, a one-off or custom-designed piece of equipment would take longer to value than a Toyota Hilux. It will help us provide you with a realistic turnaround time at the quoting stage if you can provide us with an asset schedule.

Can you provide valuation estimates 'sight unseen'?

Depending on the item in question and the purpose of the valuation, we may be able to complete a sight unseen assessment, based on information and photographs. However, a sight unseen assessment is different to a valuation. Depending on the purpose of the project, a sight unseen assessment may not be appropriate.

After Hymans has valued my equipment, can you help me sell it?

Our full service offering goes from valuation to realisation. We will include specific sales recommendations in our final valuation report, and we have a dedicated auction team that can identify the best disposal program for your equipment.
