3 Questions to Ask Potential Excavating Contractors, Ogema, Wisconsin

Once you make the decision to hire an excavating contractor for your site development or land-clearing project, make sure that you work with the right excavator for the job. Here are three questions to pose to prospective contractors when you interview them about their skills and capabilities.

What Should You Ask a Prospective Contractor?

1. What Experience Do You Have?

A contractor’s experience level should be your principal concern. Do some research before you contact an excavator. Confirm that they’re licensed and certified, and assess their industry experience. Get a sense of what sets them apart from other companies, and take note of verifiable testimonials from past clients and trade association memberships. When ready, ask about the excavating contractor’s work history and their approach to quality and service.

2. Who Manages the Site?

Some have full crews of experienced professionals who are on site each day. Others may employ subcontractors. Determine who is in charge and what channels of communication will be open to you as questions and concerns arise.

3. Are Written Estimates Provided?

A reliable excavating contractor will provide a thorough estimate in writing that outlines the work they plan to perform, the fees for each service, and potential unknowns that may drive up costs. Before you commission a contractor, you should be confident that they’ll work diligently to stay on budget and on schedule.
