Efficient Excavation Services in Auckland

Need excavation services in Auckland? Save time and connect with expert excavation pros for your project today. Builderscrack.

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

  • General property excavation
  • Hole filling
  • Large scale landscaping
  • Earth compacting for laying house foundations
  • Soil or rock removal
  • Digging bores
  • Help build retaining walls

Machines that excavators work with

  • Diggers
  • Compactors
  • Back hoes
  • Bulldozers
  • Graders
  • Loaders
  • Excavators
  • Other heavy machinery

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.

Things to include in an advertisement

  • A full description of the works you need done
  • The approximate square meterage of the area
  • A timeframe if it is an urgent job
  • Your suburb
  • The size of the access routes to the area (important in which machines are used)
  • A picture of the area in its current state
  • A picture of what you would like the area to look like afterwards if necessary
