Just finished excavating the footings fir an extension project on my house.I used DAD Haulage for my muck away needs. 4 grab lorry loads so far and one to go at the week. Excellent professional service. Friendly drivers / grab operators.I was impressed with the quantity they managed to take for each load and also negotiating the overhead cables directly overhead. Thanks guys. Good job!
