Frequently Asked Questions

Do what you can to make the area accessible as possible. If that's beyond your capabilities, make sure you let the excavating company know ahead of time what obstacles they may face. You should also move anything on the property that will be in the way, if at all possible.

We handle calling Dig Safe to mark out the utilities. Any private utilities (dog fences, private electric lines, etc.) should be marked by the homeowner if possible. Communicate with your excavation company ahead of time to determine who will arrange having the utilities marked.

We strive to do same day site visits for emergency jobs. Depending on the time of season will affect how quickly we are able to schedule a site visit.

We are ready to do demo work and take the mess with us when we leave.

Every worker at Dumper Express Trucking & Excavating Service is trained to recognize wet weather hazards and stage excavation sites to mitigate problems as much as possible. Rain is of course one of the bigger problems we deal with, and in many cases, we’ll simply cover the area well with tarp and weights or stakes to keep the tarp down so no serious damage is done.

With smaller excavation jobs it is simple to prevent cave-ins but when we’re working with trenches deeper than five feet, trench boxes, shoring, sloping, or benching are mandatory installations to prevent cave-ins. By accounting for all underground utilities and soil conditions before digging, we know what we’re dealing with and how to avoid dangerous incidents.

Old foundations can exhibit cracks and crumbling which means they’re compromised and any excavation company should proceed with caution when working around them. During new foundation installation, a high water table makes for lots of trouble. But with the right equipment we can work to fill and dry your foundation.

The prime vehicle associated with excavating is the excavator itself—a large piece of machinery with a long bucket arm used for handling material, digging, and demolition. We also use backhoes, bulldozers, graders, trenchers, dump trucks, and a wide variety of general construction equipment. When it comes to excavation and demolition, you can never have too many options. Right down to the common sledge or jackhammer, if it’s right for the job it’s right for the job.
