Excavation Companies

There are an innumerable number of new excavation projects begun every year in any given location around the world. Who is it that completes these multitudinous feats of labor and skill? Most people, after all, don't have a backhoe sitting in their garage. The answer, of course, is that excavation companies do all the work! Excavation companies are quite plentiful, and are as easy to find as hopping on your PC and running a quick Google search. Of course, if you're somewhat of a traditionalist, you can always use your phone book!

Before we get too far in, perhaps it's best to explain, for those who may not know, exactly what excavation companies do, what they are, and so forth. Excavation companies, obviously, are companies whose owners & staff specialize in excavation & related tasks. They are (assuming you've gone with a reputable firm, rather than "some guy with a backhoe") all highly-trained professionals who will turn your excavation horror stories into glowing customer reviews - that is to say, they'll get the job done, and done well. Most excavation companies provide a general framework of services. They often include the following:

  • Demolition. This is an integral part of the excavation process. While certainly not a universal part of every excavation project, demolition is part of most of them simply due to the fact that many excavation sites involve the presence (and need to remove) one or more pre-existing obstacles before the "real work" can begin. Most reputable excavation companies will offer this service, whether separately or as part of a package.
  • Pre-Demolition Consulting. You're an intelligent person, so it stands to reason that you won't let anyone, even someone working as part of an excavation company, loose on your property with demolition materials. After all, some demolition is done with the use of dynamite! Excavation companies respect this restraint and foresight on the part of their customers, and so any of them that happen to offer demolition services will also offer a pre-demolition consulting session. This session simply ensures that all risk to both parties is minimized, while keeping the overall goal(s) of the project in mind. Surveying services may also be offered in conjunction with this service.
  • Hazardous Waste / Materials Disposal. Depending on the nature of your specific excavation project, you may wish to contact an excavation company which offers the option to remove any hazardous materials which might accumulate as a result of the excavation itself. Due to the nature of the work, this is often a rather pricey undertaking - but this isn't something you should scrimp on, so if you have dangerous or hazardous waste materials sitting around after your project is completed, and a few extra pounds will see them magically whisked away, pony up! You'll be glad you did. Plus, it's illegal, more often than not, to have random piles of dangerous or toxic matter sitting on your property.
  • Excavation. While this should be a given, excavation companies specialize in the performance of services related to excavation. As such, their primary focus is on providing expeditious and thorough methods of completing any excavation projects you might have.

If you find yourself in need of the services of an excavation company, Google is perhaps your best source of information, with your phone book a close second. Remember to conduct thorough research before picking an excavation company to work with, and good luck!
