The benefits of asset conversion

When is the best time to sell your assets and equipment? Is it 3 years, 5 years or longer? At Black Star ACA, we will help you determine the best strategy for managing your assets. We use our proprietary cost / benefit model to identify opportunities as well as pitfalls. We also understand every situation is unique and we’ll take into consideration your goals, compliance and balance sheet needs to recommend the best plan of action. Some of the reasons clients choose to convert assets include:

Raise Cash

Need for cash in other aspects of the business. Currently you have no need for existing equipment. You want to convert your equipment assets into cash. Black Star ACA specializes in turning iron into cash.


New jobs often require new equipment. Time demands require outside assistance to find the right equipment for the new project. Black Star ACA has a nationwide network to search and find the equipment you need for the new project.


Need to make a decision to either repair or replace existing equipment. It may make more economic sense to sell your used equipment than repair. Black Star ACA can find replacement equipment as well sell your existing equipment.

Life Cycle

New technology sometimes forces you to consider selling existing equipment. Every piece of equipment has a lifespan and Black Star ACA can help you evaluate the best time to replace your assets.
