Do you need an excavator licence?
The short answer is no, but it's not that easy. While you no longer need to possess an excavator licence to operate an excavator for typical excavation jobs, you will need to prove competency in way of certification. (DIY use of an excavator on private property is an exception to this).
How do I get the Excavator?
We have bespoke vehicles and can deliver the excavator to site for you. It will have been thoroughly checked over, ready for use.
