Demolition and excavation is a big industry. Every demolition project is unique and that can make demolition a complicated task. Because of the uniqueness and complexities involved in demolition, you likely have a lot of questions about demolition in the Melbourne area. Let’s take a look at some of the most commonly asked questions.
Are all demolition projects in Melbourne the same?
No. No one demolition project is the same, even if the buildings are very similar. Each project needs to be approached with a unique lens and that is one of the reasons quotes are custom tailored to each client. Take a look at some of the aspects that make demolition projects unique:
- The number of buildings involved

- The proximity of other buildings
- The surroundings
- Partial demolition
- Laws, regulations and rules of the area
How do you charge for demolition services in Melbourne?
Demolition is a unique industry, in part because every project is unique. Giving a quote without knowing the details of a project is quite difficult so we do not like to do that. What we do is ask a series of questions and see your property in order to provide a custom tailored quote. Each of the questions helps to take into account the amount of time, workers, and the equipment needed for your project.
What are the different types of demolition services out there?

The two most common types of demolition out there are residential demolition and commercial demolition. Some of the other types of demolition you will find are farm demolition, garage demolition, and partial demolition.
Who does the hauling and cleanup after a demolition project?
Some demolition contractors handle the hauling and cleanup while others want you to hire a cleanup and hauling company to do the job. In our experience it is far easier to work with a company that does everything for you so that you are not left with more to do than you can handle. However, some cleanup may need specialized cleanup services and the demolition company should mention that to you beforehand.
What kind of demolition company should I hire?
Some companies specialize in specific kinds of demolition and there are certain circumstances you may want to hire such a company, like if you are demolishing a hazardous site. In most cases though you will want to reach out to a demolition company with experience in a wide variety of demolition projects. All of this experience means that they are ready to work with you no matter what problems arise.
Make sure that the demolition company you hire also does the cleanup and hauling away of the debris. It is a pain to have to coordinate with yet another contractor to ensure that everything is taken care of.
In the Melbourne area it is also essential to hire a company that is both insured and licensed. These help to protect you, the company and the employees should something go wrong. The last thing you want is to be on the hook for something that happens on the site. There is a lot that goes into demolition.
