Who can examine and evaluate used heavy equipment?
Smart investments start with thorough inspections. Before buying used heavy machinery, it is essential to inspect it in advance. But where do you start and what should you definitely not forget?
The easiest way is to entrust this task to technicians who are familiar with it. We at Mevas have specialised in the inspection of used heavy machinery and are very familiar with the functions and weak points of the individual machines.
Depending on the machine type, we have created an individualised inspection form, which the technician checks step by step and tests the machine.
Sample inspection reports
To give you an idea of our inspections, we have published some sample reports on our international website www.mevas.net. This will give you an impression of our service and help you decide whether you would like to commission us with an inspection. The team of Mevas would be happy to help you.
Free inspection checklists for heavy machinery
Are you looking for free test documents for construction machinery and commercial vehicles? Welcome to our website. Here you will find information about checklists for construction machinery such as excavators, wheel loaders, crushers, cranes and bulldozers. Now to the second question: are there free checklists for used construction machinery? Unfortunately no. At some point, someone has created such checklists with a lot of effort and time. So why should these be distributed for free? You are cordially invited to take a look at our linked test documents for used construction machinery. You can design your own forms using our checklists, that’s no problem at all. Please note that you are not allowed to simply copy our machine test documents. This would be a violation of our copyright. However, the easiest way is to order a construction machinery inspection from us. You will then receive a completed checklist from the inspector.
Equipment Sourcing and Procurement: Providing assistance in equipment sourcing and procurement can be beneficial for clients who are looking to purchase specific heavy machinery. Mevas can leverage its industry knowledge and contacts to help clients find suitable equipment, negotiate purchases, and ensure compliance with relevant regulations. By the way, a first step for searching and finding used equipment can be to set a bookmark to used-equipment.de
Equipment Disposal and Remarketing
Mevas-UK can assist clients with the proper disposal and remarketing of their used heavy machinery. This can involve managing the entire process, including de-commissioning, asset valuation, marketing, and finding potential buyers for the equipment. We know the international and UK market of heavy construction machinery very well. We can advise if it it a reasonable moment to sell or buy machines on auctions. And of course we can valuate machines before you sell them.
Risk Assessment and Safety Consulting
Providing risk assessment and safety consulting services can help clients identify potential hazards, assess risks associated with heavy machinery operation, and develop appropriate safety protocols and measures. This can help clients maintain compliance with safety regulations, minimize accidents, and ensure a safe working environment.
Last but not least, we can help you understand whether a machine offer on the Internet is genuine or a scam. On our pages “Safety instructions when buying construction machinery on the Internet” you will find information on what to look out for.
What is the best way to get rid of surplus heavy machinery and equipment?
Sell It: If the machinery and equipment are in good condition and still have value, consider selling them. You can use online platforms such as eBay, Craigslist, or specialized machinery marketplaces to reach potential buyers. Alternatively, you can work with industrial equipment dealers or auction houses to sell them at market value.
Trade-In: Some equipment dealers may accept trade-ins when you’re purchasing new machinery or equipment. This can help offset the cost of the new purchase while getting rid of the old equipment.
Online Auctions: Participate in online auctions dedicated to industrial equipment. Websites like IronPlanet or Machinery Trader host auctions where you can sell your excess machinery to interested buyers worldwide.
Consignment: You can also consider consigning your machinery and equipment with a reputable dealer who will sell it on your behalf for a commission.
Scrap or Recycling: If the machinery is no longer functional or too outdated to sell, consider selling it for scrap metal or recycling. You might not get as much money as you would by selling it as usable equipment, but it’s a way to recoup some value and dispose of the machinery responsibly.
Donation: In some cases, donating excess machinery to vocational schools, training centers, or non-profit organizations might be a viable option. They may be able to use the equipment for training purposes or repurpose it for other projects.
Hire a Removal Service: If you’re unable to sell or donate the machinery, you might need to hire a professional removal service to handle the dismantling and disposal of the equipment. Make sure to choose a licensed and insured company to ensure proper disposal and compliance with environmental regulations.
