Mining equipment appraisal

If you are facing a change in contractor for your quarry or open pit mine, you may find that a valuation of your assets is necessary. In such cases, it is important to have a team of experienced professionals who can accurately and fairly assess the value of your equipment and machinery in a way that is negotiable and effective.

At our company, we have the expertise and experience to help you through this process. Our team of skilled professionals has a proven track record of successfully completing larger mining and construction fleet appraisal projects, ensuring that our clients receive a thorough and reliable assessment of their assets.

Caterpillar® TA-2 level inspections

In our team we have some engineers who have been working with a Caterpillar dealer for many years. On request we can provide machinery inspections at the level of a TA2 including PSR download, oil sampling, filter cut and taking cycle times. We inspected so far machines up to a size of CAT 994, 777 and excavators up to CAT 6030.

Engineering & foundation equipment

In many countries we can support contractors with inspection of used engineering & foundation equipment. Before a used drill rig or a pile driver is purchased or goes on rent it would make sense receiving an independent inspection report.
