Truck services refers to service calls where only our dump truck (or truck and trailer) is required. Except for Zone 1, rates include our 16 foot lowdeck trailer when needed. Truck services requiring our trailer in Zone 1 are subject to a 1.5 hour minimum charge. More information about minimum charges is available here.

Tasks requiring our hydraulic breaker incur both our excavator and breaker rates concurrently, as both pieces of equipment are operating simultaneously. Therefore, concrete breaking costs $145/hour ($85 + $60, assuming payment within a week of invoicing) with a 2 hour minimum.


General information

GST applies to all services. PST applies to delivery services when you require us to purchase goods on your behalf, without installation contracting through our excavator service. In such cases, PST on delivery services can be avoided by arranging payment with the vendor in advance. PST also applies to fence rentals.

Our hourly rates are billed to-the-minute to ensure you get maximum value for your money. Past due accounts are assessed at the 30 day rate.


Purchases surcharge

We assess a surcharge of 10-20% for purchases made on your behalf, such as building materials and dump fees, according to the table above. We provide proof of purchases from the vendor or dump site for all such costs.

When booking our delivery service, this fee can also be avoided by arranging payment with the vendor in advance.


Credit card payments

For customers paying by Visa or Mastercard, a 3% charge is assessed to offset the cost of processing credit card payments. Fence rentals are exempt from this surcharge.
