During his 30 years in the equipment and transportation industry, Mike Holck has earned a national reputation as a consistently accurate appraiser for such over-the-road vehicles as semis, trailers, concrete pump trucks, car haulers, tow trucks and buses.  

What sets Mike apart from his appraisal industry peers is his technical mind set.  He’s a mechanic at heart.  He’s done it all, from changing tires to rebuilding engines.  So he can offer clients the best of both professional worlds:  precise valuations and equipment expertise.

Mike started out at the ground level — washing trucks and trailers in high school – before becoming a truck driver in 1985.   Eventually, he formed his own company, Holck Trucking, before joining Taylor & Martin auctioneers, where he spent 12 years as a Senior Appraiser and Assistant Manager of appraisal services.  

At Irontrax, Mike is a transportation specialist who oversees and executes physical and desktop appraisals, provides residual analysis and consultations to lessors, and performs lease-end inspections.  His reputation has drawn clients from outside the traditional transportation industry, including a recent appraisal on a NASCAR motor coach.  

He’s also a certified boom inspector for Putzmeister, a concrete pump truck manufacturer.  

An Accredited Senior Appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers International (ASA) since 2009, Mike was a 2012 and 2014 transportation industry speaker at ASA’s Equipment Valuation Conference.  

Mike has also presented and participated for several years at the annual Equipment Leasing & Finance Association (ELFA) Conference product showcase.  Most recently, he was a 2015 Equipment Management Conference speaker and will reprise this role at the 2016 conference.

Community minded, Mike is a past volunteer for the YMCA and has coached Little League for several years.  A Nebraska Cornhuskers fan, he lives in Omaha with his wife and two children.
