How to select the right Earthmoving Contractor

Need to hire an earthmoving contractor in Brisbane and you’ve typed ‘Earthmoving Contractors Brisbane’ into google. Now you’ve got pages of contractors in front of you so how do you choose?

Do you need to hire a bobcat or an excavator with an operator to move the earth for your project?

You want the best and you need an earthmoving expert but how do you choose the right contractor? 

Alterations, Additions and Renovations can all be a big investment and it’s important to feel that you are getting not only good value in terms of price, but good value in terms of the actual contractor you hire.
A good contractor will want to meet you on site to discuss your project.  This meeting is an important factor in hiring the right contractor. During the meeting you can get a feel for whether they will be a good fit. Ask yourself; are they easy to communicate with? Do they have good suggestions to save you time or money or to make the most of your space? Has the contractor got a good track record and have they done similar work before? Has the business been around for a while? Is the contractor professional, keeping appointments and providing written quotations?

It’s important to do your research and nowadays it’s so easy to do. Check them out online. Social media is your ally here. You’ve already typed in ‘Earthmoving Contractors Brisbane’ scan the results and  look for a website,  Facebook page or Instagram account where you can view photos of their work. Look for examples of jobs they have done similar to your project. See if they have good google reviews. You want to be comfortable dealing with the contractor and confident they can do the job for you at a fair price so seeing examples of completed jobs similar to yours can help with that.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions.  A good contractor likes dealing with a client who makes the effort to understand the process. You may be surprised at how many steps are required to achieve your desired result. While you want to get the best price, the last thing you want is a contractor who takes shortcuts that could impact the finished project and cost you much more to rectify a short time down the track.

Sadly, we get called in too often by clients to rectify work that has been poorly done, incorrect fill material used or insufficient compaction. The cowboy contractor is long gone off to the next unsuspecting client with no intention of fixing up his mistakes. So it is imperative that you do your research when it comes to hiring an earthmoving contractor, type in your ‘Earthmoving Contractors Brisbane’ search and start researching the results!
