About Richard Nero Backhoe Services, Inc.: Excavation Company in Cleveland

Do you need your driveway removed? Looking to have your backyard excavated to install a pool? Do you own a structure that you need demolished? Does your business need its underground utilities dug up for repair or maintenance? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are on the right website.

Richard Nero Backhoe Service provides these services and much more for the people in the Cleveland area. We take great pride in our experience in the execution of a wide variety of excavation projects. Not only because it gives us a reputation which is hard to beat but because it shows us that our clients appreciate the work we do for them. We would not have gotten where we are today if we did not make customer satisfaction an equal priority with efficiency and safety.

Sometimes it may be tempting to attempt a ‘do it yourself’ excavation project because it will save you a few extra dollars. However, there are some factors you need to consider to properly weigh the possibilities. First, how large is your project and how much time can you personally spend on it?. We can get the job done fast not only because we have the right equipment but also because we have the experience to handle any problem which may arise. Second, are you insured in the case of injury? Richard Nero Backhoe Service is a fully insured and certified company so our customers have peace of mind with our service. Third, do you know where your pipes and utilities are located and what the protocol is in the case that they are damaged? We are expertly trained to make sure that we never breach the surface of a pipe or utility line and have the know-how to dig them up with as minimal risk as possible.

For these reasons and more it may be time to call Richard Nero Backhoe Service to aid you in your excavating project.

Great work in our patio.

I had an 18×25 deck supported on concrete piers over a pond. The deck was deteriorating and needed to be removed. I had a lot of trouble finding someone who could do the work. Many I contacted just didn’t know how to deal with it since it was over a pond. I called Rich and he came out within a couple of days to look at. He knew exactly how to remove it, and gave me a quote a few days later. I also needed some other minor excavation work done and Rich quoted that as well. Rich is an artist with his big backhoe. He had the deck, concrete piers and all, out of the pond about an hour after arriving at the site. He made it look easy. He then cut it up and loaded the pieces into a dumpster for disposal. Rich had planned to finish in one day but the dumpster company failed to deliver the dumpster until late afternoon (dumpster company’s fault, not Rich’s) so Rich had to return the next day to finish the work. I would not hesitate to recommend Rich for any kind of excavation work. He is experienced and professional. He calls when he says he will, and shows up when he says he will. He gave me a lot of useful advice about my other excavation work and things he noticed about my property. People who know how hard it is to find good contractors should call Rich when they need excavation work done.
