Basic technical analysis or in-depth testing?

You can decide whether a visual inspection with a functional test is sufficient for you. The performance test for the engine and hydraulics is always included! Especially for large and expensive machines, it can make sense to go into further detail including oil analysis and measurement of undercarriage components.

Mevas inspects used machinery since 2006. Read more details about the team. Amongst our customers are some larger players in the construction and mining industry. We work i.e. for MIBRAG, some major Komatsu dealers, Arcelor Mining, Caterpillar Financial, Zeppelin Baumaschinen, Equippo, Mantrac, Finanzauto or Bavaria-Swiss AG.

Our team and our management is available for valuation or appraisal. We assess a single machine or an entire fleet. On request, we can provide references on larger construction / mining machinery assessment projects that we have successfully completed. We can even send four or five inspectors at the same time.

On-screen valuation

In some cases an on-screen-valuation may be enough to determine the residual value of a construction machine. We can provide such evaluation for a small fee. No subscription required. Valuations are done by humans and not only consulting a database. Read more on our page about online valuation for heavy machinery.

Can Mevas sell you used machines?

If you are looking for used machinery, we cannot help you as we do not deal in machinery. However, you can take a look at www.used-equipment.de to start your search. We have set up this site as a support for those who want to buy machines. Rest assured that you will not be scammed! Read more about the safe way to purchase used equipment.

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.

Fleet Valuations

In the past, we have implemented various machine evaluation projects. Well over 150 machines were inspected and evaluated in a short time. Depending on the customer’s requirement, we either only provide condition reports or we also add the residual value of the machine.
