Bulk earthworks, excavations and muck shifts have been an integral part of the services that J.W. Crowther & Son Ltd offer for over 70 years.

Having been in the industry for well over 70 years, we are proud to have worked with a vast array of clients to carry out a range of services which include, spoil removal, contaminated spoil removal, site remediation, site clearance and bulk earthworks. Bulk excavations can involve a variety of materials- we can help remove and move most of them!

 Our clients include many local and nationally known house building, construction, reclamation and civil engineering companies. As clients are starting to need deeper excavations and more of them due to land prices and the scale of projects, we are able to supply a fully operated team of excavators and tipper vehicles for as long as required.

 We have built long standing working relationships with a number of these clients and we feel that this repeat business highlights the quality of service that we offer. To assist our customers and offer a more complete service in addition to our plant, tipper and excavator hire we also provide add on services such as delivery of topsoil and aggregates. We are also able to offer more specialist solutions such as knotweed removal and root removal. Everything we transport or remove from a site where bulk excavations are taking place is transported for use elsewhere or disposed of appropriately whether that be at a recycling centre or licensed waste tip.

Throughout our 159-year history as a family business, we have experienced significant changes with the development of technology and working practices.  During this time, we have moved from the use of steam with our Fowler traction engines to the latest Volvo Euro 6 tippers. We were one of the first Companies in the area to offer pivot steer loading shovels such as the Matbro Mastiff and Chaseside Loadmaster. We can also provide the latest CAT and JCB excavators.

Health and safety has always played a very important part in our history and we are holders of CHAS, SafeContractor and Altius certification. We are also proud to have achieved UKAS accredited and BSI audited ISO9001, 18001 and health and safety ISO14001.

Our vehicles also have safety camera systems and our operators all hold CSCS or CPCS cards.

From our ideally situated Head Office location right by the M62, M621 and M1 we can deliver a reliable, quality and good value service throughout the Yorkshire and Humberside regions.
