SGS Crane Inspections

A better service for used crane inspections

Are you looking for an inspector for a used crane? Did you come across or did you hear from SGS or TÜV? If you are looking for statutory or safety inspections for cranes SGS is a good solution. Well trained staff and available in many countries.

Does SGS understand used cranes?

There is a difference between inspection of a used crane for a buyer and a safety or statutory inspection. An inspector who is trained for Loler or OSHA inspections does not necessarily understand what a purchaser of a used crane wants. This is the situation when MEVAS comes on stage.

Crane inspections by our experts

MEVAS inspectors understand, how to prepare a reasonable inspection report for buyers of used cranes. A detailed report focuses on machine details such as leaks, maintenance status, wear in ropes, wear on tires and other details which are influencing the remaining value of a crane. Our technicians know how to take reasonable pictures and videos. They crawl under the crane to search for cracks and leaks. Rust on chassis is estimated as well as condition of tool boxes, swing bearing and telescopic cylinder condition. Our engineers use a specific checklist for each type of crane. We have inspected mobile cranes up to 500 to lifting capacity and large crawler cranes for windmills.

Free Crane Inspection checklist

I guess they came to this website because they are looking for a free inspection form for cranes. A good checklist for inspecting a used crane is based on the procedure of a crane inspection. The form is designed in such a way that a crane inspector can carry out all the tests during the inspection and the test procedure is completed in a certain amount of time. The form is therefore not intended to hinder the crane inspector, but to guide him. All assemblies are listed in the order in which they will be tested during the inspection. Checklists for cranes must of course also be based on the type of construction of the crane. So there cannot be a single checklist for any given type of crane, but separate checklists must be drawn up for each type of crane.
