March 3rd 2021

The founder of Sparrow Excavation and Fencing, Andrew of Lillooet British Columbia, provides the highest quality of excavation and fencing services to all their clients within Lillooet and the surrounding areas.


Andrew has over 25 years of knowledge and experience in commercial, industrial, and residential carpentry and as of 2011, Andrew has become certified as a heavy equipment operator which has allowed him to expand his horizons into the excavation and heavy machinery industry.


By having extensive knowledge in the field of excavation, the team at Sparrow Excavation knows just how important it is to have such services done by professionals for multiple reasons. Here are a few benefits of hiring a professional excavation company rather than doing it on your own.


Benefits of Hiring a Professional Excavation Company

1: Reduced Risk of Property Damages


It seems that nowadays more and more people are turning to DIY methods to save money from hiring others to perform the work for them. When it comes to excavating property though, hiring a professional excavation company to perform the work will not only save you from the dangers that unknown buried gas and electrical lines pose but with the company being experienced in locating buried lines and potential hazards, you will be sure not to endure possible unforeseen costly expenses by digging into the unknown. If gas or electric lines are damaged, the cost of repair will be undoubtedly quite expensive and will also leave you without those services until repaired.


2: Professionals are Licensed and Insured


Excavation Contractors carry licenses and insurances that cover any possible damages that may occur while performing services and are extensively trained and have the experience that is required to perform excavation services safely and efficiently. This will ensure coverage of all losses and costs if, by chance, damages do occur during the excavation process, which most homeowner’s insurance will not cover.

This alone will save you the unnecessary stress of possible damages occurring and the unforeseen costs of such damages.


3: The Right Equipment for the Job


Most of us don't have backhoes, trenchers, bulldozers, or laser systems sitting in the yard to be used at our disposal, and even if that is indeed an option, operating such equipment should be left to professionals for several reasons.

Heavy machinery, if not operated in a safe and controlled manner, poses a very high risk of injury. Not only to the inexperienced operator but to surrounding people as well as to the property.

Excavation equipment operators are trained to use such equipment and can execute the work with the machinery in a safe and timely manner.


4: Unknown Earth Elements


What’s on the surface of the site of excavation, may not be the case for what’s underneath.

A professional excavation company knows all too well that digging through the surface can expose a variety of unexpected earthly terrain.

For example, the visible ground content may be dirt, grass, or gravel but the underground contents may be mud, rock, or even sand.

Excavation contractors are equipped to deal with all degrees of terrain and know exactly how to work with each type of terrain that may be presented as the dig progresses.


5: Productivity & Efficiency


Although tackling projects yourself may seem like a great way to save a few bucks, if all goes flawlessly that is, the fact is that most DIY projects tend to last much longer than anticipated and are likely to be much more costly than originally planned.

By hiring the right professionals to do a job you will make certain that your project is done promptly along with being done efficiently.

From the first step of excavation to the last, the excavation team is aware of the proper steps to take to ensure the job is done correctly and in a timely fashion.


The advantages of hiring a professional excavating company go beyond the examples listed above and Sparrow Excavation and Fencing in Lillooet is dedicated to assisting clients in the area with all excavation services that are required.
