"I hired Peter for a retaining wall building job last week, and I have to say it's really a great experience overall. Peter is a nice person to deal with, patient and deal in every detail with his expertise. I'm extremely happy with the work, and would recommend to anybody who need relevant services!:)"

"Peter was excellent. His quote was easily half that of other quotes we received and he even offered options for us to save further on materials, tipping of waste etc. He was flexible, reliable, punctual, and (most importantly to me) honest. Our site was extremely difficult to access and others had flat out refused the work but Peter managed to get his machine in and out. 100% would recommend Peter for anyone needing excavations or retaining walls done. He seems to have a tool for every job and the skills to suit. I honestly can't speak highly enough of Peter both professionally and personally. "

"I had a difficult task trying to find someone to install my 280kg steel beam in an existing brick wall which needed to be opened up and supported at the same time. Three builders had passed on this job before Peter told me exactly how it would be done, how long it works take & also a good approximation of costings. He was onsite a week later with his team of 2 extra tradies, and had the whole job done in 1.5 days! (I had been quoted as much as 4 days work by other builders). Very happy with the result and I honestly couldn't recommend Peter & his team highly enough. I wouldn't hesitate to have them back & hopefully I will be able to. Thanks Peter & Co."

"Peter was very professional, from quote through to finishing the job. We needed a small log retaining wall replaced and all work was completed in 2.5 days. All rubbish removed and the finished job, in H channels and sleepers, looks very good. Punctual and good workmanship. No hesitation in recommending him."
from Epping, NSW posted a job for Retaining Wall Construction on 21 December 2015

"Peter did an urgent job for me. We agreed the excavation job over the phone and start time. He arrived early and we ran into a couple of hurdles which meant the job took longer than expected (at no fault of Peter) as there were lots of services in the ground. Peter was a gentleman despite a few challenges, he kept working with little direction from me and he also has a lot more knowledge and experience in general construction than operating an excavator. Will definitely use Peter again and will be recommending to friends."
from Rydalmere, NSW posted a job for Earthmoving Contractors on 14 December 2015

"Recently used Peter to excavate and concrete an area for a home extension. Selected Peter due to the number of positive reviews he had received which proved well deserved. Peter turned up on time every day come rain or shine and each morning would spend 10 minutes talking me through what he was doing that day and nothing was to much trouble no matter how silly the question. As an owner builder his expertise and experience was invaluable as I feel that the result I achieved was far better than if i had used someone else. Peter went about his work as if it he was working on his own home a true perfectionist and have used him on another job since and will continue to use him in the future. highly recommend. "
from Denistone West, NSW posted a job for Concrete Slab on 24 November 2015

"I have used Pete for on a few occasions now and he has never failed to impress me. His dependability, punctuality, standard of work and knowledge of all things building. I started out with excavation and I can assure you his time spent on that machine shows, Peter has since completed concreting (including forming), block work and framing for my build. Thanks Pete. Will use again and I recommend Thornleigh Excavations. Its sometimes hard to get trades to even turn up. I found one that will and knows what they're doing. Phil."

"Peter was prompt, timely and extremely knowledgeable. Peter worked with us providing advice every step of the way, even on matters unrelated to the job. Peter's communication during the whole job made dealing with him a pleasure."

from Thornleigh, NSW posted a job for Demolition Experts on 7 August 2015

"Peter had advised and provided consultation to resolve problem with our hydraulic engineer. Although Peter's speciality is excavation & earthmoving, Peter has extensive experiences and knowledge in general building work and service. Peter is also very prompt and reliable that we do not hesitate to recommend Peter's services to anyone. Adrian and Rose H."
