What We Do

Hydro Excavation

As the innovators of Hydro Excavation in New Zealand, Southeys Group have amassed considerable experience in this exciting evolution in safe digging. By using pressurised water to cut through the substrate with high capacity vacuum suction, our hydro excavators offer a far safer and faster way to dig than by hand.

Vacuum Loading

Whether you need to remove 200 cbm from your site pond, or 3 cbm from your retaining wall post holes, Southeys Group can offer you a cost-effective solution.

Our modern fleet of vacuum loading trucks and high volume trailers (3000 – 25000 litres) are designed to meet your needs efficiently and cost-effectively.

Health & Safety

Southeys Group has first rate health and safety programmes for its operations and the practice of hydro excavation can be safer for workers on site than mechanical excavating.

Hydro Excavation
We have engaged Southey’s trucks on several occasions over the past 6 months. We often ring at very short notice and require 2-3 truckloads of water removal minimum and sometimes more. 
Their professionalism and can do attitude always ensures we get the service we ask for.  Their ability to shift things around to ensure we get assistance, generally within a very short period, is outstanding.

I have met a number of your drivers and each of them are obliging, competent and a real pleasure to work with.

As a Main Contractor we will most certainly be continuing with your service and recommending you to others.”
