Demolition and slab removal in a residential area is delicate and difficult work, as we need to take care of the safety of the neighbourhood and people living in the vicinity.

Challenges of Residential Concrete Removal

There are several challenges that concrete removal poses which we look out for:


Concrete is a heavy and hazardous material that can cause injury, if not handled carefully. As an experienced service contractor, we know the frequency of removal, the proper procedure for loading and transporting, in addition to demolishing and breaking the concrete slabs into manageable pieces. Our experienced staff follows all safety regulations strictly.


It is not easy to transport bulky and heavy pieces of concrete pulled out of a demolished building. You will need heavy lifting equipment and heavy-duty trucks to do the job. Hiring such equipment is costly as they come at a steep hourly price. Also, you would need to know the right amount to load the concrete – less than the capacity, you will need to make several trips; on the other hand, more than the capacity, you will be putting pressure on the engine. When you hire us, we will have the right equipment and know the capacity of each truck.

Council approvals and regulations:

You need government and council approvals and to follow all regulations and rules governing the demolition and removal of concrete. These include public safety, pollution, environmental impact, and safe transport & disposal of concrete rubble. As a licensed concrete removal service contractor, we follow all regulations obtain the required approvals.

Landfilling site & costs:
