What our clients say...



First and foremost Gavin is a really genuine guy who will work with you to achieve your goal. His work is immaculate and his approach is methodical ensuring there are no surprises when digging. Having said that he is also very fast. He completed some back filling and new trench work, for our Edwardian property where no one really know where all the pipes, electric are and Gavin was excellent at ensuring the work was completed without any damage what so ever. I have had incidents in the past where old drains have been smashed etc so the careful approach is worth its weight in gold. His day rate is very good value for the service and quality of work he achieves. I will definitely work with Gavin again on future projects and will be sure to recommend him to family and friends.

Gavin is a very experienced operator. Very clean and tidy and his machines are new and reliable. Turned up on time every day and got straight to work. He also saved me a lot of money due to knowing the right people to use for grab lorries and working directly with suppliers for materials. A very enjoyable experience and great value.
