Excavation Experts: Heavy Duty Earth Works In Wellington

Are you building a new house in Mt Cook? Maybe you’re completely remodelling your tiered garden in Oriental Bay and installing a new below ground swimming pool. Perhaps you’re thinking about installing a mini-replica Beehive in your front yard and need your soil compacted for the foundations.

With any earthworks that you’re thinking about doing on your property, it is in your best interests to hire an excavation expert to do the work for you. So if you live in Wellington and have a job that may require excavation services then read on.

Excavation contractors work with a wide variety of machines to help you to achieve your earthworks projects. You may think that you could just hire a small bobcat and use it to complete your earthmoving project yourself, but it is always better to leave it to the professionals: they’ve been trained on how to use various machines from backhoes to compactors and they’re covered for insurance purposes to use the machines.

Work that excavation experts can complete:

  • Soil removal
  • Hole filling
  • Boring work
  • Trenching
  • Work for retaining walls
  • Heavy duty landscaping
  • Site work including soil compacting before slab installation for a new home
  • Digging out a swimming pool area
  • Other earthworks and earthmoving projects

Machines that your tradesman may use:

  • Excavators
  • Bulldozers
  • Graders
  • Dump trucks
  • Backhoes
  • Diggers
  • Loaders
  • Compactors
  • Skidsteers

Excavation cost considerations:

  • Soil/clay/rock disposal costs; this is usually calculated per cubic metre
  • Extra material cost if you’re building a retaining wall
  • Machine rental costs if not done by hand
  • Contractor cost per hour
  • Offsider cost per hour (most projects are at least a two person job)

Estimates of time taken to complete the job:

Generally, excavation jobs will take at least half a day to complete for a small job. If you have a large project with multiple stages or a large property, you’re looking at a timeframe of a week and up. Be sure to get time estimates from a few different tradies to see how they stack up against each other.

Remember you should receive a full written quote to look over from your trained excavator operator which will include estimates of the time, cost of materials removal and installation, machine hire and man hours required.

How to find an excavator for your job:

When placing your ad for an excavating professional in Wellington, make sure to flesh out the details of your job. Include where possible the measurements of your area/s to be worked on and what you require for them to do. Taking pictures of the area can also be helpful for the contractor to see the sort of space that they will be working with.

When you place a job on Builderscrack, the contractors will find you and bid for your job. Check their reputation on the website and don’t be afraid to ask them for other references.
