How much do excavation services cost?

How much does it cost?

In Australia, residents and businesses use various excavation methods to prepare the ground for crops, farms, plumbing and septic systems, basements, roadways, and pathways. You may also require excavation if you're landscaping, building retaining walls, constructing a pool, building on a sloping block, upgrading your house, and for other construction projects.

However, excavation projects frequently need the use of heavy machinery such as bulldozers, excavators, dump trucks, rollers and loaders with an operator. Hence, it is important that you include this into your total budget when planning for new projects.

Average Excavation Costs:

On average, excavation costs range from $70 to $150 per hour. However, professional excavation companies may charge between $800 and $6,500 on average. Different factors such as the type of project, equipment needed to complete the project, amount of labour, type of soil, and the season during which the excavation project is completed may affect the overall land excavation cost and duration of the project.

Factors That Determine Excavations Costs:

The project's size:

Smaller excavation operations requiring the use of small two-tonne excavators or bobcats can cost as little as $95 per hour. The hourly rate for larger tasks needing 6-tonne excavators begins at $105 per hour. Excavation jobs that need excavators and tip trucks can cost up to $140 and above per hour.

Site accessibility:

If access to the job site is difficult for employees and equipment, excavation expenses will be higher than if access is easier.

The nature of the project:

The cost of site excavation varies according to the scope of the project. The cost of a basic pool excavation might begin at $500. However, pool excavation prices can range from $3,000 to more than $3,000, depending on the size, shape, and kind of soil to be dug. The average cost of excavation for a house foundation is between $800 and $15,000. Basement excavation costs between $2,000 and $13,000. The typical cost of excavating a driveway or pathway space in Australia is between $500 and $900.

Equipment employed:

The equipment utilised affects the excavator cost per hour. Excavator and operator rental fees may skyrocket when specialised equipment such as 2 or 8-ton excavators, bulldozers, compactors, and tip trucks is used. Mini dumpers, augurs, diamond drills, and other equipment mounted on a truck can cost an extra $200 to $800 per day.

The soil type:

The kind of soil removed affects the cost of the project. The cost of excavating regular sandy high bulk density soil is between $30 and $50 per cubic metre. However, if vegetation, trees, roots, logs, rocks, boulders, concrete, asbestos and other waste must be removed, the cost per cubic metre of excavation can increase to between $40 and $150. The cost of rock extraction per cubic metre and excavator wet hiring are on the high side.
