Honest and efficient and on schedule.. Scott's and his team did an amazing job on my addition excavation. His team was able to complete a 3 day job within 2 days of work. Having a whole team doing the excavation really makes a difference. I highly recommend Scott's excavation.

I have used Scott's for many projects over the years. From small jobs that are only a day to big ones that are two weeks or more. The team is reliable and efficient. I would recommend them for any sized excavation job.

When a routine hydro upgrade went awry, I called Scott. Having never used excavation services, Scott was responsive, patient and reassuring. He rearranged his schedule so he could show up at my house as quickly as possible. He very carefully excavated my yard in search of a buried damaged hydro line. At one point he literally climbed down into an extremely deep, wet trench to hand dig out the area. His low key confidence, professionalism and smile totally put my mind at ease during an extremely stressful situation. Scott was attentive - he followed up several times to get status updates and find out when he was needed on the job site next. This is the only call you need to make should you need excavation services, emergency or otherwise. I will recommend him to anyone who asks, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again should we need excavation services again (though I hope we have no further emergency digs in our future 😆).

They have done work for me twice now - each time the work was estimated, promptly completed, and left me with NO unexpected surprises. His "crew" is polite, and workmanship is above and beyond. I would highly recommend Scott's services.

We hired Scott’s Mini Excavation & Breaking for our backyard renovation and are very pleased with the results!! Scott and his son Mitch went above and beyond to accommodate our schedule and over the summer helped us create our “dream” backyard-istry!• We had their breaker remove old patio, walkway and the excavator to remove a large tree, clearing the site for new concrete.• They also trenched for installation of 4” pvc piping for 2 existing catch basins and added a 3rd one to greatly improve a previous driveway drainage issue.• Mitch is very skilled and detail-oriented and was exceptionally talented at assisting in the construction of a large terraced blast rock wall and basalt rock stairs.• Mitch also prepared another area onsite for a flagstone patio installation. He trucked in and assisted in installation of ¾ crush for patio base as well as 3 rock pits on the project.• We also had Scott and Mitch truck out green waste and old sod, truck in road base to prepare for concrete; truck in garden soil for lawns and garden beds and assist in placing soil and grading site.We would not hesitate to hire Scott and Mitch again and would highly recommend Scott’s Mini Excavation & Breaking! They had the right equipment for our project, and a good broad range of equipment available including two tandem dump trucks.Thank-you Scott & Mitch! We'll be calling on you next Spring!!

Scott and his son Mitchelle are so accomadating and flexible. What looked to be a straight forward excavation became more difficult has the days went by and they did anything I asked for. I would not esitate to hire them again and recommend them to anyone.

Had Scott’s team come early June of 2021 to put in a trailer pad for us. They came at the designated date and time. They were very courteous and helpfull with me in laying down the weed fabric and 4x6 border I wanted. It turned out awesome. Will be recommending them to family and friends

We had a large cedar tree removed and stump ground by another company. Unfortunately the area was still unusable. We hired Scott to dig out the area so we could extend our paver patio. Took a little extra work than we expected. The very large root was removed, road base filled, leveled and the area was done right making a solid base to install a new patio. We also had Scott remove our old sod, dirt and level our yard with great top soil. The next day we installed new sod. We now have a beautiful backyard !! Scott handled everything professionally and in a very timely manner!

Our strata complex had to remove about 120 linear feet of cedar hedging. Scott and Mitch rolled up in their brand new tandem dump truck with a mini excavator in tow. After minimal instruction they got to work. Mitch made the job look effortless and was even kind enough to do some additional breaking and trenching at NO ADDITONAL CHARGE. They finished the job in great time, loaded and disposed of all the old hedging and left the effected areas clean and neat.I deal with a lot of contractors and I have to tell you that dealing with this company was one of the most positive, easy, well priced experiences I have had in some time. Congratulations Scott! You should be very proud.

Scott and his crew were fantastic. They worked hard and were easy to talk too. The price was very reasonable, I had quotes for the same project over $2000 more. Would recommend Scott’s Mini Excavation to all my friends and neighbours. Very excited to have them back for my next project. Thank you Scott!

Scott's was the most resonable price out there for a gravel parking pad, he did a quick phone estimate and then a vist to confirm the estimate. They comunicated well with the timeframes and check with me in multiple stages of the contract. I would recommend them to everyone.

I called Scott to come take care of my back yard. It had turned into a swamp over the last few years, and we needed it all removed to start fresh. I called Scott to come give a quote. I was surprised to find out how affordable his service was, so we decided to ahead. The job ended up going over quote, but Scott communicated with me all the way, and we only went over quote because after we started it was apparent that the dig out needed to go deeper then originally planned. Scott was very accommodating and professional. His team got the job done very quickly, and they are very good operators. I was a bit worried they might bump the house, or something, but never once did they touch anything despite digging right up against the house and garden shed. Fantastic! I will be calling him back to do the rest of the property later!

Can't say enough about Scott and his crew. I had a 9 ft. solid cement swimming pool that had to be filled in and top soiled to plant a back yard. Scott & his son Mitch tackled the job and did an excellent job. I added more jobs to the mix before completion and Scott kindly took care of all of them for me. I will certainly contact Scott again for future business.Thank you again Scott & Mitch.MA-Coquitlam

Spoke with Scott a few times to discuss the project (removal of numerous hedges at our house and at our neighbour's). Mitch arrived on time and finished the job in less than half of the expected time. Very professional and extremely skilled at operating the mini-excavator in tight spots. Surprisingly, he was able to pull out my hedges without damaging the underground sprinkler system. An outstanding job indeed.

If I could give 6 stars, I would!We engaged Scott’s Mini Excavation & Breaking to remove several large blackberry bushes growing around 3 large pine tree trunks peppered with large rocks and random chunks of concrete and iron in the ground. I initially reached out to a number of companies, but Scott was the only one who responded to me within a few hours and constantly kept in touch with me thereafter. The original extent of the job was just removing the blackberry bushes, but once we discovered the three large hidden tree trunks and decided to get those removed at the last minute, Scott was accommodating, patient, and thorough to remove them for us. These trunks were no small feat! The roots themselves could have been trunks on their own – they were huge, tangled up with the roots of the adjacent trees, and were deeply rooted in the soil.The commitment and tactile approach Scott demonstrated to remove the bushes and the tree trunks, displayed his high level of professionalism, dedication, and years of expertise in the industry. With every scope creep that came up, Scott kept us apprised of any time and cost implications prior to proceeding. Scott never tried to up sell us, or add more money or time to the job than what he had quoted. He arrived on time, and completed the job at the time and amount he said he would. His prices are extremely reasonable, and the service is fantastic. I was more than happy with the results of the job and even happier with the service provided. I look forward to hiring Scott again for future jobs, and would undoubtedly recommend him to others!

Excellent service, spectacular work, and very reliable. I had a large pool in my back yard which was built in 1979. It was 18' wide x 36' long by 10.5' deep pool that needed over $10,000 in repairs to be able to be used. I made the decision to fill it in, but knew it would be a very large job as there was only a 6' wide gap to access the back yard. I had several contractors come by for quotes, which ranged from $10,000 - $30,000. These contractors just showed up, looked and quoted. Made me feel uneasy. So the search continued. My wife located Scott on Google. Scott came by, spent about an hour at my house, measuring, writing down and fully examining the job. He quoted me $6300 plus tax. I was surprised at the low price. So I had Scott come and do the job. Once finished, the job was completed only a little above the quote due to some unforeseen things that happened beyond Scott's control. Now my back yard looks amazing, and I could not be happier.NOTE: Scott obtained free fill for the pool. It would have been very easy for him to tell me he had to pay for the dirt, and I would never have known. But he didn't. He was honest and told me he got the dirt for free, and I did not need to pay a penny for any dirt.Scott is honest, reliable, and does amazing work. You will not be disappointed by hiring Scott. Do not get ripped off by larger contractors. Use Scott!!I will update this post with more pictures soon!

Had another company come in to do some landscaping for us and ended up getting Mitch to come in after and clean up their mess! Great job, great service, great price. We will be calling again for our next project.

Scott was awesome! I was super impressed he called a week before start date to ensure I had everything on my end ready prior to their arrival. Showed up on time and kept me apprised of any issues. Very fair price quote and kept me informed on number of trucks used to haul dirt, boulders and a huge stump uncovered during leveling of my yard. Turned out much better than I pictured in my mind. Highly recommend him

Scott came by our house and spoke to us about his schedule and how he or his son Mitch were willing to accommodate with a grading project so we could prepare for a new stamped concrete patio and walkway.Scott was out of town and had Mitch manage the entire job in 5 hours. He worked closely with our concrete guy (Eduardo from Just Quality Concrete) and leveled the yard, trenched the perimeter in preparation for drain tile and helped clean up at the end. Overall, Scott's Mini Excavation was a pleasure to deal with as they are professional, timely and full of great insights which make it great for the do-it-yourself'er! Thanks Mitch/Scott and you guys are awesome and totally deserve our respect for running a stand-up operation!

I cannot recommend Scott and his son enough. They have just completed clearing work in the back of our property. There were blackberry bushes, tree roots, broken concrete and any other "junk" you could imagine. It looks like a new place after they cleared, levelled and filled with crush gravel. They were professional. communicative and kept me informed all throughout the day. A sincere thank you!

I called Scott to come and take a look at my back yard as it was becoming a mulch pit. Scott gave me a clear breakdown of what was required, very fair price and came within the week to complete the work. Very professional and an outstanding job well done. Definitely a number I'll be saving in my contacts list.

Scott is an excellent contractor. We hired him for a pool demolition and fill-in and we were impressed by his expertise, professionalism and customer service. He always showed up for appointments and was easily reachable. The job was completed on time without any complications, thanks to his expertise. He offers reasonable prices, works hard and seems to really enjoy his job. I would highly recommend him.

I Googled excavation companies who serviced Coquitlam and found Scott. We are very happy with the work he preformed at our house. He showed up when he said he would, and was always a Text away. He also made some suggestions which saved us money. Thanks Scott for all of the work you did in excavating our back yard. He did a great job and I highly recommended him if you have any excavation needs.

Scott demolished my wood/composite patio and concrete pathway, located in a very tight area and also surrounded by two septic tanks. He did a fantastic job. Site was left nicely levelled and clear of debris. Everything was done on time and within budget. I highly recommend this company for any demolishing or excavation work.

This five star review is not one bit exaggerated. Scott and his son Mitch went above and beyond through the process of building us a 60 foot by 5 foot retaining wall. From bringing the proper ideas to the table, sourcing out gorgeous large natural rock, hand picking and delivering them and then breaking ground and turning a devastated yard into a master piece with great coordination and professionalism. Every bit of this job went very smooth, time efficient, and the final product is immaculate. Working with Scott was a great experience as he really works with the homeowner and creates a friendly environment. To top this all off I would have to say the price was more then just competitive. Great work. Highly recommend.

Decommissioned our swimming pool was a daunting process as access was very tight. Scott’s problem solving won the day and we are pleased with the result. Scott was very easy to work with and willing to go out of his way. His estimate of how long the project would take was on the money, and his was by far the lowest priced quote for the contract. We can highly recommend him.
