Utilities Locators, Underground utilities locating companies, Excavators, Electricians, Plumbers, Planners, Developers, Farmers, Land Surveyors, Builders Contractors, Home Owners and Landscapers all over the country are taking advantage of this convenient referral service.

No matter the size of your project, you can be doing landscaping in your backyard or heavy work such as directional boring or directional drilling. Just tell “Dial Before You Dig” when and where you plan to dig, they pass that information on to the underground utility owners and then they will respond directly to you with the cable and pipe location information.

David Kimber, Senior Insurance Adviser at AustBrokers Comsure says:

“From an Insurance Adviser’s perspective, Dial Before You Dig is an essential process for all occupations that perform this type of work. With a greater understanding of what cables and pipes are in specific areas, this limits the possibility of claims arising and is therefore a beneficial risk management process for all clients. Supporting documentation for these searches can protect the business from not only claims arising but also damage to the business’s branding and reputation.”

Tradies, an essential first step, to taking the right step. Be prepared!
