About Alpha Heavy Equipment Services

We're a small family-run business established in 2013 and based in southwest Burnaby, serving the Lower Mainland of beautiful British Columbia. We are type-A folks who pride ourselves on the quality of the work that we do, hence our company's name!

My name is Lucas, and I started Alpha by offering equipment operation and site management services. I ran full-size excavators owned by an environmental services company operating in remote locations throughout BC and Alberta until 2015, when I decided that I'd had enough of life on the road.

I settled down in Burnaby and began offering those same services to excavation and construction companies in the Lower Mainland. In 2016, I bought my own excavator, truck and trailer, transforming Alpha into a full-service company specializing in high-quality and value-focused mini excavation and light hauling services.

My wife Melanie and I got married in 2017, and that's when my small company became a family business. She began helping me with administrative tasks like bookkeeping and invoicing, as well as occasionally running our dump truck and rental track loaders.

In 2018, our son Colton was born, so while Mel is no longer running equipment, she is still an integral part of our business in her administrative role. She also runs our home and looks after Colton, making it possible for me to concentrate on my job as Alpha's lead operator and business manager. In time, I hope that Colton will want to eventually take over our business. When he was born, I half-joked that I'll finally be able to retire in 25 to 30 years!

Since then, we've expanded our range of services to include temporary fence rentals, and we plan to acquire a bobcat as our next major investment. We love what we do and we treat every customer's property like it's our own.

We're grateful for the opportunity to serve you and we thank you for your continued support!
