We have about 1 cubic meter of soil and bark waste. About half already excavated, but the remainder will need digging up. We also have about 1 cubic meter of general waste from the garden.

We are looking for someone to get rid of all this stuff for us. Some digging is required but most stuff is ready to be lugged around...Read more
Will only suit smaller dingo style machine. Ground shaping works at front of property and prep for new lawn. Spoils will stay on site or go in hardfill bin. Easy access. Hand excavation needed for various hardscaping works. It is not hard digging, probably a day for two . Boxing work for some paths on the property is also required. Fair price with good refs is all i ask. Can add more pics. Cheers and thanks SteveRead more

Auckland rocks! Built on the Auckland volcanic field, with One Tree Hill and Mt Wellington being popular volcanic summits and Mt Eden being the highest volcanic cone in the area, earthworks projects are continually evolving to accommodate the latest trends in landscaping architecture.
Have you just bought a block and need to bulldoze the current structures before building your dream house? Are you planning on putting in a gorgeous new swimming pool for when the days are warmer? Maybe you’re removing the darn swimming pool and having the hole filled in because it’s too much work to look after.
All of these property works involve using the services of an Auckland excavation expert. From Epsom to Kingsland to Mission Bay to Lynfield, use Builderscrack to find the right man or woman for the job.
Type of works that excavation contractors do
Machines that excavators work with
Qualifications that earthmovers may hold
Earthmovers and earthworks contractors will hold a licence to drive one or more machines. This includes their heavy vehicle licenses – class 2, class 3, class 4 and class 5, with tracks (T), wheels (W) and rollers (R) endorsements. Some experts have obtained a National Certificate in Civil Plant Operation (Bulk Earthmoving Level 3), though this is not necessary to work in the field.
Price of conducting earthworks
The cost of your excavation project can vary widely depending on the size of the area that needs to be worked on, what machines will be needed to do the job, the cost of soil or other material disposal (should that be involved), extra material cost if filling in landscaping, the contractor cost, as well as the cost for their offsider.
Excavation jobs may not be cheap, so ensure you have your potential contractor come around to survey your space and draw up a written quote before agreeing to anything. A good rule of thumb is to try three different earthworks professionals and then choose which one you like best from there.
Hiring a professional excavator
To hire a professional excavator, you can use Builderscrack to make the process easy and quick. Instead of hunting through classifieds or asking everyone you know for a recommendation, you can post a job up on Builderscrack and have the earthworkers apply to help you complete your project.
