About the Mevas inspector team

We are your eye on site. Stay at home. We inspect machinery for you.

The idea about equipment inspections

When buying used construction equipment, there is often a difference between the seller’s description of the machine and the reality. In order to provide the buyer with a good and independent description of the condition, Mevas was founded in 2006. Mevas is an abbreviation for Machinery Evaluation Service. Buyers can stay at home and remotely assess the condition of a machine.

An independent third party

We have been offering independent services for more than 16 years. We do not receive commissions, we do not pass on inspection results to third parties and we are not involved in the trade of machines. Our machine reports are not influenced by the seller. This does not always end without conflict, but our reputation shows that it is the right way to go. Meanwhile we offer inspections up to a TA2-level.

If you are looking for used heavy machinery, we cannot help you as we are not involved in the trade. However, we have made a website where you can find a link collection to used machinery websites.

Fraud protection

Sometimes we are asked to check machines from unknown suppliers. We are particularly attentive when the machines are comparatively cheap. In many cases, the inspection team’s call to the vendor can already uncover attempts at fraud or scam. Our team is also trained to detect fraud. We check photos, the vendor’s address and call him for an inspection appointment.

The Mevas Team

The founder Wolfgang Bühn can look back to almost 40 years working with construction machinery. Grown up in the industry he knows a lot about yellow iron. Wolfgang was 13 years with Zeppelin Baumaschinen, working in sales and international sales management for used equipment.

Chris joined the team in 2010 and is working as inspector and manager for 13 years now with Mevas. Christina joined us in 2020 and it the good soul in the office.

Last but not least we have a core team of 17 inspectors working almost every week for us. Another currently 15 engineers are supporting us occasionally. In an average year we inspect 600 to 700 used machines, trucks and cranes.


We use Ethikbank because they don’t finance coal projects. We run 8.5 kW solar panels to produce the energy for the office and for our little BMW i3. Mevas supports the Dresdner Eislöwen, Caritas and Arche Nova
