We also proudly serve as the region’s favoured topsoil suppliers and crushed concrete suppliers. With over three decades’ experience, we know how important it is to find the right company from the outset of your project – we’ve seen other companies come and go in our time, often due to a failure to perform and deliver on targets. The types of work we deliver involve a hefty amount of planning and organisation in addition to the actual hands-on work itself, and it’s time-served professionals like our own who best understand that.
If you’re weighing up options for a groundworks, plant hire or demolition company in Maidstone, we’d like to throw our hat in the ring. And below, we’ve highlighted some of the key factors involved in making the right selection. Note that we apply the same exacting standards to our work as topsoil suppliers and crushed concrete suppliers, as we do the aforementioned structural services.
The most vitally important factor in demolition is safety. As such, a demolition company should be able to prove it has a consistent track record delivering projects that meet meticulous safety standards. If you’re in communication with a prospective demolition company, ask them how their team and machinery comply with UK regulatory standards. It’s of the utmost importance to know how they will approach their work, dismantling a structure while protecting themselves, the public and surrounding property. They should also be insured and accredited with reputable industry schemes. Other considerations should include references, whether quotes are free and no obligation, and projected timescales for completion.

Groundworks is a wide catch-all term that covers a wide variety of services. So when first sounding out a groundworks company covering Maidstone, the first question to ask is if they can deliver the particular service you require, and to check how much experience they have in that particular area. Going further and requesting see examples work in a portfolio is also always a wise idea.
With more significant undertakings, remember to ask if it will be solely company staff working on the project, or whether sub-contractors will be hired. In the case of the latter, it might be worth seeking a guarantee that only qualified workers will be used. Maidstone residents can tell a lot from a company’s approach to communication, and poor communication with you, a prospective customer, could imply below-par communications on the groundworks themselves.
Plant Hire Company
Most construction projects require some sort of plant, and there’s a good chance that you won’t have it simply lying around in good knick. That’s one of the core benefits of using plant hire. Nevertheless, some plant hire companies covering Maidstone are less stringent in their approach to plant maintenance to others, and some invest in new kit more regularly than others, too.
This makes it worth requesting information on the age and maintenance of available trucks and machinery. Older equipment is more likely to let you down than equipment that has been recently purchased. However, if you’re looking to save on costs, older plant may be available cheaper and then it’s just a case of ensuring it’s been subject to regular checks and maintenance.
You should also find out if your plant hire company offers 24/7 support, and if not, what their availability is. It makes all the difference if, for example, your plant were to breakdown or stop working. Ask them how they might manage this kind of situation. If you experience an issue during the plant hire term, you don’t want to be left stranded and without support.
