Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I have a tight access job with both machines fit down the side of my house?

Q: Do you need to see the job before you come and do the job?

A: Quite often we can discuss your job over the phone and I can give you a rough price based on how long we think the job should take. But as our franchisee is local to your area he will be more than happy to come out and take a look to provide you with a written price and lend some advise if required.

Q: If your Combo Unit comes with a truck do I have to pay for rubbish removal?

A: Quite often your job would be quoted to include all dump fees and the time taken to travel to the closest dumpsite. If the job is quoted on an hourly rate the dump fees will also be added to the costs at the end of the job.

Q: Can your machines break up and remove my driveway.

A: Absolutely, having both machines on site are perfect for all aspects of pulling up or breaking the driveway.
