Auckland Excavation Specialists

Earthworks, digger hire and civil services to the greater Auckland area.


North Shore Earthmoving and Civil is an Auckland based Earthmoving Company that services the greater Auckland region and specializes in residential and light commercial earthworks, excavation, earthmoving and other civil services. With over 10 years of experience in earthmoving and earthworks, you can rely on us to be professional and reliable. Our team is capable of working on varying terrains and surfaces and are excellent problem solvers, so you can count on us to get the job done no matter what.

Do you need a contractor?

Excavation work involves the removal of soil and rock to create an open face, hole or cavity. Depending on the scale of your project, the size of excavators and tools we use will vary. Projects like open excavation, digging trenches, site cutting, under house excavation and house foundation preparation are just some examples that require earthwork and excavation services.

If you’re unsure, feel free to contact us to discuss your project.

It is always in your best interests to conduct some research and see if your project requires consent for any excavation work. Some projects like simple household gardening, archaeological excavation, and pile driving, do not require consent.

Safety is our priority

We always make sure that our work meets New Zealand compliance standards. We meet these standards across all stages of the project. Each member of our team is trained in the necessary health and safety procedures for operating our equipment and managing the site projects.

Project safety requirements can vary depending on the scale of your project. For example, if your project requires excavation work on an unstable surface, we would advise you and the surrounding residents to stay clear of the area during the excavation to guarantee everyone’s health and safety.

Before any project commences, we will identify the possible hazards and risks that could occur. If it affects your work or living space, we will come up with the best solution to minimize disruption.
