About JD Dodds Plant & Machinery Valuers

Established in Mackay, Queensland in 1973 by Jeffery D Dodds, the company serviced the needs of the growing region and soon expanded to have offices up and down the regional east coast of Queensland.

While our roots began with property valuation, JD Dodds soon realised there was an obvious demand for a specialised Plant and Machinery division which could operate independently from the parent company. By its nature Plant and Machinery valuation is very different to property valuation, it requires a different methodology and skill set to produce reliable valuations. In 2006 the Plant and Machinery division was developed and now runs completely independent.

Because JD Dodds Plant and Machinery Valuers are solely independent it allows us to provide cost effective solutions and fast, efficient turn around for our clients. We strive to provide our clients with the utmost highest quality of professionalism to ensure we deliver substantiated accurate reports. Our Valuers have a combined knowledge base of 124 years in the field and together have the experience to value any type of asset no matter how obscure the industry sector.
