Everything you need to know about finding an Excavation Business

There are many reasons for needing excavation on your property, whether it’s for leveling the ground, putting in a swimming pool, landscaping, adding service trenches such as those required for drainage and plumbing – the list goes on.  Whatever your reason, it is a good idea to gain at least three different quotes from professionals, such as residential or commercial builders, and also to see their licenses and references.

Choosing an Excavation Professional

Consider the size of your job – will a bobcat with operator suffice or will you need larger machinery?  Ensure that the machinery can access the area to be excavated.  If your ground is soft or uneven, this may affect what type of machinery can be used in excavations.  Not only are there traditional excavation methods using earthmoving equipment, there is now also vacuum excavation, which is particularly suited to service trenches and the like and causes much less disruption to your property.

Additional Services

Also consider if your chosen professional will remove excess material such as soil, rocks and concrete or if you need to hire another professional for this.  Similarly consider if your professional will bring in any additional fill needed. Your professional should be able to detect any underground pipes or cables before work is commenced.  If necessary, you can also ring the Dial Before You Dig service to find out where pipes and cables are located on your property.

Use the search feature on this page to find a local excavation service - and make sure you get at least three quotes to ensure you get the best deal.

How Much Does Excavation Cost?

Excavation costs can vary widely, largely dependent on the nature of the job involved. Sites with difficult access will carry a premium, as will larger jobs such as excavating a pool. Hourly rates for excavation can start in the region of $70 per hour - a figure that can vary depending on your location and project. Generally, the more equipment required the more you pay.
