How to Choose an Excavator

When it comes to choosing a reliable excavator, you need to know a few things to do. It may seem like an easy choice to make, but there really is quite a bit that goes into this kind of decision. Here is a list of tips to help you in making the right choice!

How to Choose an Excavator

Plan It Out

Know what you want before jumping into a large excavation project. Try to do a lot of pre-planning before getting an estimate. The more you know about materials, and exactly what you want done, the more accurate the estimate will be.

Background Checks

Make sure you do your research on the company you are considering. History, complaints, reviews, licenses, etc. Although they could come off as the best, their history with BBB and past clients could prove otherwise.

Busy Is Good

Finding the best excavator means being patient. The best will be busy with other projects and may not be able to jump right into a project with you. That is okay though! That shows how in demand they are – meaning they are good!


You should probably interview at least three excavators before making a final decision. This will give you a good idea of who you will want to do your project and who will be easiest for you to work with.


Make sure that you have a very detailed contract that you both agree on and have them sign it. Keep a copy close to you as the project goes on so that you have it to fall back on in case of any discrepancies. A contract will also help to know exactly what will be done, materials to be used, deadlines and payments.
