    "Unfortunately we were let down on multiple fronts .1) the job was difficult so we were promised that the owner will do it but instead it was subcontracted to two teen agers who needed baby sitting throughout . They dug out edges very untidy and removed a portion of my Ashphalt driveway 2) was promised that a chain saw will be used to cut out roots but half way during the job declined to use the saw and instead proposed to get a stump grinder at $1200. We had to say no because of the obvious cost and all the metal that was laid would have been contaminated 3) was promised a layer of gap 20 over gap 40 but was told in the end that there was no allowance made for gap 20 .4) no allowance for compacting the driveway .5) in the end left the job unfinished . The cost has now gone up by 60% of original quote . It’s extremely stressful to hunt for a contractor now to finish the job when commercial tenants are moving in a few days time . Stressful to raise funds. I am happy to remove this review if the owner takes some responsibility and finishes the rest of the job - at cost . ( I am not asking for a freebie ) . I have already paid all the amount that was quoted plus a few hundred extra . Not holding back a cent as others would do."

    "We engaged Leigh and his team to remove an existing driveway and path and also to remove another area out the back of our property ready for concrete. We had over 100m2 of concrete put into the new driveway, paths and back area. We are extremely happy with the finish. The boys were fantastic to deal with and even with us changing a few things along the way Leigh was very accommodating. Very very pleased with the job done! "

    "Contacted Kiwi Excavate with a small job to remove a raised garden and smooth area for lawn, then to use some soil to fill and smooth an uneven piece of lawn.
    Leigh came and gave a quote for the job and fitted it into his schedule within 3 weeks, the job was done quickly and very efficiently and then the final invoice came well under the original quote. Very pleased with the outcome.

    "Leigh and his team were great to work with. Any changes in scope were disussed and agreed before commencing the work, and issues were sorted ASAP. All the team were very genuine and I would recommend them. I love the retaining wall, it has completely transformed my property. Can't wait to see what they do to the drive this week. A++++++"

    "After a great experience the first time (removing a 12m retaining wall) Leigh was the first person we called when we decided to replace our driveway. Although we had an unexpected problem with groundwater Leigh and his team were able to quickly rectify and keep the job on track. The finished driveway looks amazing"

    "Really impressed with the service we got, ours was one of those small annoying not worth doing kinda jobs but these guys were so good, fast, tidy and super polite treated the job just like they would a much larger project. As a trade business owner I was really impressed with their health and safety awareness. Will use and recommend kiwi excavate again without a second thought."

    "We used Kiwi Excavate to remove 12m of block retaining wall from the front of our house. We found Leigh and his team very professional and friendly. They turned up on time, finished early and left the site clean & tidy. His quote was very reasonable and we're planning to replace our driveway with him. I would recommend Kiwi Excavate to anyone considering earthworks"

    "I highly recommend Leigh's work at Kiwi Excavate. Completed the job at short notice following his return from the Christmas break. The backyard is ready to rock and roll now after an amazing job done which has made a huge difference to my property. Very competitive price and great communication to coordinate the job.
    Thanks Leigh for your work.

    "I met Leigh when he was fixing a slip for our neighbour. We were so impressed with the work that was done we asked him to undertake the same for us as we had also had a slip. He did this work and it looks great.
    We then found another slip so had to get Leigh back again. This time it was a bit more of a challenge and involved him sourcing some product for us. Leigh did another amazing job in what was at times, difficult and dangerous.
    He made us feel comfortable with his skill and ability, and his can do attitude, he kept us informed at all times, was on site when he said he would be, and always professional. He also took away left over rubble.

    I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Leigh to anyone, he is an outstanding digger driver and person, who goes the extra mile.

    "Kiwi Excavate was recommended by a friend.
    I called Leigh and organised a meet. I found Leigh to be down to earth and friendly.
    Leigh and I discussed my vision and he gave me a clear idea of time, cost and potential issues.
    Leigh made it easy to understand the process and gave me his expert advice. Leigh also gave me the option to work in stages to confirm progress and to ensure that we stayed within budget.
    The end job was great and was done very quickly and well within budget.
    We are about to kick off the next phase of the project and I am more then happy to use and recommend Leigh and the team at Kiwi Excavate.
