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.

Do we have used heavy equipment for sale?

If you are looking for used equipment we can’t help because we do not trade with machines. However, you can have a look at www.used-equipment.de as a start for your search. We made this page as a support for those who are looking to buy machines. Be sure you won’t get 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.

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.
