Types of earthmoving and excavation services

Topsoil excavation

This type of excavation involves removing the exposed layer of the earth's surface, including any decaying matter that could make the soil compressible and therefore unsuitable for handling structural loads.

Earth excavation

Earth excavation moves one layer deeper - it involves removing the layer of soil directly beneath the topsoil.

Rock excavation

This involves using special excavation methods such as drilling or blasting with explosives.

Earthmoving and excavation services are needed in many important applications; including exploration, environmental restoration, mining and construction - where construction is the most common purpose. The service can create building foundations, reservoirs and roads and a professional is needed to ensure that the job is done right.

How to hire the right earthmoving and excavation expert


With a large scale job like this, it is important you only consider businesses that are qualified and licensed to undertake work of this nature. This is to ensure the quality of work is high and that it's safe too.


Again, with a heavy duty job such as this, checking that the business has the relevant insurance will assure you that if anything goes unplanned, yourself and the workers are protected appropriately.


Hiring a business with a good reputation can be beneficial to getting the job done correctly and without any hassle. Whether it's asking friends or colleagues, or reading reviews on a business's Oneflare profile, you have a better chance of getting the job done right if you know they've done it right before.
