iseekplant is the leading reputed construction hire marketplace in Australia, with over 450 earthworks suppliers who have registered their business information and service capabilities in our database. We provide one of the best platforms for finding quality earthwork companies to efficiently meet the needs of your construction projects.
Below we cover the rough costs of general earthworks services, along with descriptions defining what these services include, in the case that you're not sure what work you need completed.
Below are some general rates of earthworks tasks for common residential earthworks projects. We haven’t included rates for civil or commercial jobs, because these need to be priced properly (and we also don’t expect that engineers will read this and be building their estimates from this information).
This is very general guidance - and we encourage you to get accurate rates for your projects using the iseekplant Get A Quote Tool.
