Leading Contractors In Excavation & Retaining Walls Bangalow

When you’re hunting for excavation, earthmoving, or retaining wall contractors in Bangalow, look no further than Southern Excavations.

Maybe you’re looking to undertake a project at home. Many jobs, from driveways through to shed pads, call for excavation.

Are You Looking For An Excavator Near You?

Here at Southern Excavations, we can help, whatever type of excavation you need. We’ve got a thorough knowledge of the Bangalow area, and we’ve been helping people just like you for more than three decades.

We consider no job too big or too small. With small to mid-sized jobs, we can also help with the project management side of things. If you’re struggling to find the best tradespeople or the most cost-effective suppliers, take advantage of our deep expertise and hard-won connections throughout the Bangalow area.

How about the equipment itself?

We’re proud to offer both 5-tonne and 8-tonne excavators, along with a powerful Posi Track, and a nimble Bobcat. With rock breakers and pallet forks, we’ve got all the extras you need.

Not all excavation, earthmoving, and retaining walls contractors operate in the same way, and we like to start with a chat and a free estimation, so you’ve got a foundation as solid to operate from as the foundations we help you excavate. Once you’ve decided the estimation meshes with your budget, we’ll make sure your project comes in on time, on budget, and is executed to the highest of standards.

What if you’re looking to undertake more than a quick and easy excavating job, though? At Southern Excavations, we can assist with far more than just basic excavation.

Looking For Earthmoving Experts For Help With Retaining Walls Or Other Excavation Projects?

Not all excavation contractors in Bangalow can cope with every project you have in mind, certainly not when the scope of work extends to earthmoving, and building retaining walls. Luckily for you, at Southern Excavations, we take all this in our stride.

Whether you need retaining walls on a construction site or a new driveway at home, we can bring out the larger excavators to get more work done in less time.
