Specialized in Heavy Equipment

Why should you hire MEVAS?

Mevas should become your partner for machinery inspections because we do nothing else than heavy equipment inspections every day. Certainly there are other companies available. But with more than 300 inspected machines each year we are proud to be the major player in this area in Europe. Check out a selection of our valued customers. We offer machine expertise, consulting, appraisal and evaluation but nothing else.

Earthmover Inspections

Our engineers have many years of experience. Most of them have a background as mechanics with a Caterpillar-, Komatsu-, or a Crane distributor. Some of our inspectors still repair machines and trucks. If you need a quality check for a backhoe loader, a uswed wheel loader or a crawler excavator we can help as it is our daily business.

Trucks and Concrete Equipment

Here you can find the right inspector for used trucks. Mevas technicians know about road trucks, tractor heads, trucks with cranes and trucks for ready-mix concrete. No matter what brand you buy, we can inspect Mercedes, MAN, Iveco, Scania, Renault or any other make. We are qualified to inspect concrete pumps of Schwing, Liebherr, Stetter, Putzmeister or Sanny.

Quarry and Mining Equipment

We love the big stuff and it is a pleasure for our specialists to inspect machinery for quarry and mining. We have no fear to perform qualified inspections for big Komatsu or Caterpillar trucks. We can offer a profound check of blast hole rock drills and of course also for compressors and large generators.

Crusher and Screens

Very specific and often with hidden problems. Crushers and screening equipment is difficult to evaluate. Since we are now over 10 years in the machinery inspection business we can pretend having many processing plants inspected. Cone crushers, jaw crushers, impact crushers and various screens have been inspected by our specialists.

Foundation Engineering Machines

The inspection of used rotary drilling rigs, diaphragm wall equipment, piling machines and anchor drilling rigs is a very difficult job. We are not the engineering specialists but we can look back to inspection of some larger machines. Evaluation of these engineering machines can be offered and would be performed by the Mevas company owner.

Lifting Equipment Inspections

Some inspectors in the Mevas network have been trained to perform safety and quality inspections for cranes. Checking out an LMB or measuring the play in the swing bearing of a crane is a procedure the technicians are used to do. We inspect reach stackers and fork-lifts from 1 to 100 ton lift capacity.

Specializing in CAT & Volvo

We are specialized in Caterpillar and Volvo equipment. In most areas we can offer qualified inspections including reading of internal machine computers. We can gain access to the so-called ECM and store a CAT-PSR or a Volvo-Matris.

TÜV approved engineers

Some of our engineers are approved and certified by TÜV Germany for machine safety inspections or statutory inspections. Appraisal and valuation of machines is another part of our business.

Special Equipment Inspections

We have some experience with special equipment. Some inspections have been done in the past on forestry equipment and blast hole rock drills for quarry and mining. Due our long experience in heavy machinery we are even able to offer inspections for used drill rigs and piling machines.

MEVAS History and Background

What started as a one man business in 2006 has continued to grow into something that is now probably the largest appraisal company in Europe. Last year over 400 machines for end users, traders and finance companies have been inspected. MEVAS currently has13 independent inspectors operating in many countries throughout Europe, UAE and other countries. We offer free consulting about the selection of earthmoving machinery, crushing plant and material handling appropriate to the jobs you want to do.
