Supporting our local community. Together, we’re doing good things
Chris, a builder and Matakana local, found it just a bit too hard to find a quality digger to hire for the building jobs he was doing in the area. So he got himself a Little Digger and in doing so made building jobs, DIY jobs and landscaping jobs a lot easier. Now our range of equipment and experienced drivers are available to you too!
We are passionate about making your job simple from the ground up. We genuinely love to help customers achieve a great outcome when they undertake their landscaping, drainage or building projects. Would you like a site visit to chat about your requirements? Not sure what you need?
Being locals we understand that for a lot of you, tight access can be a problem. That’s why we are the Little digger people. For others on larger lifestyle properties, drainage can be a nightmare. We have the equipment and the know-how to help! Need landscaping supplies? We can arrange and deliver. What about dumping? We can do that for you too.
As an experienced rural builder, Chris comes with years of knowledge that he’s happy to pass on to help make your project as simple and successful as possible. Always happy to have a chat, give us a call today.
