Statutory and Safety Inspections

If you came along our website because you are looking for safety or statutory inspections we are sorry. This is not our business. Mevas only provides quality inspections, appraisal and valuation for used cranes and other lifting equipment.

Crane inspection report

Our crane inspection means we would agree with the supplier a test procedure with an operational test. The crane operator from seller would operate the crane as requested by our inspector. Boom will be fully extended and checked for damages, slider wear and if straight. Lift rope and winches are approved for condition and functionality. Swing bearing play will be measured. Engines are checked for leaks and operational condition. Same with brakes and transmission. The technician inspects the crane underside for leaks, steering and brake components, axles and suspensions.

All this comes along with a detailed crane inspection checklist, a set of 50-70 photos and a video if required by customer. Report and photos are provided online to give various recipients access without sending large e-mails.

We check the general condition, we can measure if the chains are elongated and estimate the cost of necessary repairs. Our experience can help to select the best equipment for the money you pay.

Don't pay good money for a bad crane
