"We work for you as if we were doing it for ourselves."


About Us:

With over 20 years experience Gill Excavating is a professional business specializing in excavation and brush work. Gill Excavating is a family owned business that was started by father and son, Robert and Michael Gill, in 1990.

Since then, sons Nathan and Jason joined the Gill business while Nathan became a partner and operator of GMN inc., a brush mowing business, and Jason filled the co-owner position when Robert retired.

Today, Brothers Michael and Jason work side by side in making sure their customers are provided with dependable and high quality service. “We work for you the way we want someone to work for us, and make decisions the way we would do it if it were on our own land.” You will not find a business team who cares more about making their customers happy than Gill Excavating.

From a project estimate to completion, not only will the job get done, you can count on the job getting done Right!

If there is work to be done with a large machine, we can handle it.
