Appraisal Heavy Machinery

Asset valuation, mining and quarry equipment

Mevas is a reliable expert service when it comes to inspection and evaluation of plant, machinery and equipment in open pit mines, quarries or fleets of construction machinery. Our technicians are trained for inspection of excavators of all size, small and big wheel loaders, quarry trucks, drilling rigs and other heavy machinery. No matter if the appraisal is required for just a few units or a fleet, we have the knowledge and capacity. On request we can name a couple of projects where we have valuated equipment in mines, quarries or larger construction sites. We are appraisers of heavy equipment for more than 20 years.

We are ready to send engineers for on-site-inspections to most areas on the Globe. The team speakes several languages and we are used to operate on site. Feel free to call us for more info.


An experienced team of machinery inspectors is available in almost all European countries, Africa and the USA. The German management leads a team of international inspectors. All engineers are trained for used machinery inspections. We are at home on dealers yards, in mines, quarries or construction sites. Most important: Mevas does nothing else than inspections and valuations and we keep info about customers and machines confident. Read more about our business policy.

We don’t fear big yellow iron and larger projects

We have extended experience with machinery of Caterpillar, Komatsu, Hitachi, Terex and Liebherr. Impossible to count how many Volvo machines we have inspected since 2006. Must be over 3.000 units. However, the color of the machinery doesn’t matter. We inspect mining machinery of all size. For larger projects we can send up to five engineers at the same time. It all depends on requirements and budget.
