PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS…The professional alternative

Today’s business climate and environmental concerns dictate that investment recovery services must be handled by seasoned—practiced—experienced professionals who possess a keen appreciation of the legal exposures, environmental risks, and responsibilities that surround these activities.

It is often said that ‘liquidation is an art’ and that ‘art is in the eye of the beholder’. Think of a Picasso and a Velvet-Elvis. While both are appreciated by their respective audience as ‘art’—in both appreciation and value—they are worlds apart. To appreciate EDS’ artistry in investment recovery is to appreciate the difference. We are not dot-com auctioneers, used equipment jockeys, nor two-bubba’s-with-a-truck. Our investment recovery specialists are practiced artists that provide global corporates with the professional alternative.

Our investment recovery methodology and techniques are commensurate with the client’s best interests.  Our fee structure is incentive-based and promotes results that often exceed our client’s established goals. This ensures the highest and best values for our clients’ in the conversion of their special assets and special situations to cash and relieves them of the frustrations, limitations, and especially the risks so often associated with questionable Velvet-Elvi’.

EDS’ comprehensive investment recovery services include 24/7/365 onsite keepers, dismantling, shipping, storing, maintenance, repair, and remarketing. We are particularly skilled at handling marine-related assets, land-based and floating, e.g., inland vessels, work-boats, barges, cranes, drilling equipment, and cargoes along the Greater Gulf Coast of the United States at our flagship Investment Recovery Center of America®, location at the Port of Slidell in Slidell, Louisiana (Greater New Orleans, LA).

Our investment recovery technicians are specifically trained in machinery and equipment removal, and our practiced methods and procedures serve to protect and enhance the value of our client’s assets, unlike lesser—Velvet-Elvi—equipment maulers so often associated with liquidators.

Our remarketing efforts are handled by our polished-professional global market-makers who are particularly skilled in building markets and in seeking out and identifying end-user purchasers, no middlemen nor dealers, for secure private-treaty sales. These efforts translate into significantly greater returns for our clients. Remarketing can be accomplished either on-site or from one of our strategically located Investment Recovery Centers of America® venues.
