We make lien search simple.

Ground Clearance is the lien search company designed to help the heavy equipment industry do the best job possible at verifying debt whether buying, selling, brokering, auctioning, or holding equipment as collateral.

In the United States liens are filed by the name of the owner, not the equipment. This saves you money as cost of your search is the same for one or one hundred pieces of equipment when being sold by the same owner. It is not possible to search by serial number.

No one wants their equipment deal to end up as a liability. Ground Clearance helps you gain the peace of mind to move forward on your equipment deals. We can even help you get the necessary lien releases or payoffs from secured creditors.

If you rent or lease out equipment – we will file UCC’s on your behalf. A UCC stating the equipment is on lease is a measure to prevent the equipment from being sold as free and clear when a search is run on the seller. We will file the terminations as well.
