Earthmoving Contractors

Earthmoving is an essential part of any new building or construction project whether domestic or commercial. We take the risk management and safety very seriously to ensure the job is completed in a professional and timely manner.

Inexperience in this industry can result in costly mistakes such as puncturing water or gas pipes. This may cause delays to the project before it has even started. Avoid these complications by using a reliable and reputable company like ours that has local experience in Geelong and the surrounding areas.

Underground infrastructure needs to be identified before the site is ready for earthmoving and we have the contacts and resources to know exactly what is in the ground no matter the site location. We work with other home excavation contractors like Driveway Geelong to keep business within the community.

Why Emerich?

We are highly skilled and licensed excavators that operate a wide range of machines. Our fleet can tackle any project regardless of the size, accessibility or soil type. We are proud to be one of the most trusted excavation companies in Geelong and have been building relationships with locals for many years.

Everyone of our staff members that do excavation Geelong, operate machinery have been through rigorous training and are certified and insured to ensure they understand all aspects of occupational health and safety associated with excavations. This line of work is unforgiving to mistakes which is why we take every job very seriously and do all necessary due diligence before the actual earthmoving begins. This includes calls or meetings with Dial before you Dig and the asset owner or project manager.

Even after receiving confirmations our site supervisors do a manual site inspection to make sure there is no unregistered infrastructure below the surface. When a delicate subterranean object is identified on site, we proceed through that area with non-destructive excavation methods such as potholing by hand. All underground assets are then recorded digitally and submitted to archives for future contractors and property owners.

The Process



Contact is the first step of our earth and the civil services process in which a customer contacts us and provides us with details about what he needs. The customer may contact us by phone, email, online form, or in person. We use this information to assess the customer’s needs and determine the best way to serve them. We may also ask for additional information, such as a mailing address or phone number, to help us reach the customer. Contact is an important part of our process because it allows us to establish a relationship with the customer and assess their needs.



After we obtain information from the customer in the first step, the second step is ‘Quote’ in which we provide a detailed quote for the services that our customer needs. This quote includes the price of materials, the labor required, and any other relevant costs. Once the quote is accepted, we move on to the next step.



After our quote is accepted, we start the final step of our process which is delivering the services we mentioned in our quote to achieve customer satisfaction.

Versatile Earthmoving Machinery

The versatility of our fleet gives us the flexibility to take on a wider range of jobs from trenching and footing to highway and industrial earthmoving.

We have mini excavators that are not only able to navigate tight properties with ease but also perform more delicate/small scale digging tasks. We also use backhoe hire or excavator hire services if needed for a big project.

As footing provides the meeting point between building and earth for structural loads, it’s is essential to create an even and solid hole for your foundations. Our light weight diggers can take away the headache of manual stump holes and post holes which can save you both time and money.

Our mini excavators are also great for backyard and home improvement projects such as spa installation, in-ground trampoline holes, and swimming pool excavations.

Such projects are often at the back of existing residential properties and have tight spaces to navigate.

In any case we are fully insured and can guarantee the completion of your project will be completely stress free.

How do you calculate excavation cost?
Can I operate an excavator myself?
Can I operate an excavator myself?
Yes, you can operate an excavator yourself. However, it is not recommended that you do so unless you have experience operating heavy equipment. If you are not familiar with how to safely operate an excavator, it is best to hire a professional to do so for you.
Do I need council approval for excavation?
You may need council approval for excavation if you are excavating on a site that is considered to be heritage-listed or if the excavation will disturb any underground infrastructure, like water or power lines. You should always check with your local council to see what regulations apply to your specific situation.
What is trenching excavation?
Trenching excavation is a type of excavation where a long, narrow hole is dug in the ground. It is often used for installing or repairing underground utilities, such as water and sewage lines. The hole is called a trench, and the process of digging it is called trenching.
What's the difference between excavation and earthmoving?
Excavation refers to the selective removal of earth from an area, while earthmoving generally refers to the movement of the earth from one place to another, regardless of whether or not any earth is removed in the process.

Excavation is often used when creating a foundation for a structure or when digging a trench. It is also used to remove soil that has been contaminated with hazardous materials. Earthmoving, on the other hand, is commonly used in construction projects and land reclamation projects.
