Vacuum excavation reduces the risks when exposing or digging around utilities. There are two methods of doing this: either by water or air.
SEQ Vacuum Excavation is the leading provider of hydro vacuum excavating services. Using vac trucks as opposed to conventional excavators/diggers ensures there is no unnecessary damage to underground utilities and services – this practice is also known as non-destructive digging (NDD).
There are multiple benefits to using vacuum excavation, including that it is a non-destructive, non-evasive, cost-effective, and accurate form of digging. This excavation method implements technology that is far more advanced than traditional excavators.
Hydro Vacuum Excavation is a non-destructive digging (NDD) technique that offers a safe, accurate and cost-effective way to excavate. This process is non-evasive, meaning it doesn’t cause any damage to the surrounding area. With the use of vacuum hydro excavators, it has become a more affordable and efficient method for excavation projects. We provide a complete range of professional hydro excavation and Vac truck services across the Gold Coast, Brisbane, South East Queensland and beyond.
We do safe, non-destructive hydro excavation for civil, industrial, commercial, and residential projects at SEQ Vacuum Excavation Brisbane (SEQ VAC). From North Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, including Caboolture and Moreton Bay, our services are available.

Vacuum excavation trucks are highly versatile machines that can perform a wide range of excavation and cleaning tasks in various industries. Here are some ways in which vacuum excavation can be used:
Our vacuum trucks break up dirt with pressurised water before removing it with the help of a vacuum system and depositing it in a debris holding tank where it can be disposed of safely.
A truck with a pump and a tank is known as a vacuum truck or vacuum tanker. The pump is made to pneumatically suction liquids, sludges, and slurries into the truck’s tank from a place (frequently underground) through suction lines with a diameter of typically 2-4″.
The least amount of damage to existing and subsurface fixtures of pipes, cabling, and electricity or other lines is one of the key advantages of employing a vacuum excavator. There is less need for backfilling because the work done from a vacuum excavator is likewise more exact and accurate. Because vacuum excavation is more modern and controlled than traditional digging techniques, it is also significantly safer.
Since the materials are excavated but kept inside the storage unit by the suction mechanisms, the workstation is made cleaner. Vacuum hydro excavation is a more economical option because of how quickly materials can be removed. Because there are no chemicals used, utilising a vacuum excavator is also a more environmentally friendly way.
The size of the area that has to be excavated and the difficulty of the task will both affect how much it will cost and how long it will take. We provide free estimates and hourly rates over the phone and these can change depending on the difficulty of your project.
It may occasionally be quicker, simpler, and safer to excavate with a hydro excavation vacuum truck, depending on the job’s scale. The time it takes to dig with a vacuum truck can also be influenced by the type of ground. For instance, it can be significantly faster to dig through sand than it is to dig through a rocky subsoil.

When subterranean utility services are present in the digging area, it is highly advised to dig with a vacuum truck, as it’s a safer method of excavation. Always call SEQ VAC to find and map the area if you are unsure of what is below the surface.
We provide a variety of modern vacuum excavation trucks and excavation equipment at SEQ VAC, ranging in size from small 1000L trailer-mounted machines to large 12,000L truck-mounted units. Our most often utilised truck sizes fall into the 5,000L to 8,000L range.
One of our vacuum trucks is normally capable of excavating up to 3.5 metres deep, depending on the type of soil you are working with. For the safety of our operators, on some projects our vacuum trucks are utilised to dig in holes that have been manually dug and adequately shored and benched.
Simply put, it is a technique and form of digging that uses a strong vacuum system’s high-velocity suction. In comparison to traditional excavation methods like jack hammering and machine excavation, it is frequently utilised to aid in visually locating underground utilities and service lines. High-pressure water jets are used to break up the dirt on a surface while a mobile vacuum device removes the loose soil.
Hydro excavation uses pressurized water to create a vacuum inside their buckets which sucks up soil and rocks from the bottom of the hole they’re digging.
A vacuum excavation unit has a wide range of applications and is only constrained by your imagination. It excels at trenching and open-hole excavations. For additional details, or to book an estimate, contact our team today!
Hydro excavation is a process of digging using high-pressure water jets and vacuum suction to break up and remove soil or other materials. It is a safe and precise method of excavation that minimizes damage to underground utilities and other structures. The water jet loosens the soil, while the vacuum system removes the slurry and debris from the excavation site.
Hydro excavation offers several benefits over traditional excavation methods, including increased safety, reduced damage to underground utilities, minimized environmental impact, and improved efficiency. It is also more precise and can be used in a wide range of applications, such as digging trenches, potholing, exposing underground utilities, and cleaning out catch basins.
When choosing a hydro excavation service provider, it is important to consider factors such as experience, equipment, safety record, and cost. Look for a provider with a proven track record of delivering high-quality work and who uses state-of-the-art equipment that meets safety standards. It is also important to ensure that the provider has appropriate insurance coverage and is licensed and certified to operate in your area. Finally, consider the cost of the service and compare it with other providers to ensure you are getting the best value for your money.
The Gold Coast is a coastal city and a region in the state of Queensland, Australia, approximately 66 kilometres (41 mi) south-southeast of the centre of the state capital Brisbane. With a population over 600,000, the Gold Coast is the sixth-largest city in Australia, the nation's largest non-capital city, and Queensland's second-largest city after Brisbane. The city's Central Business District is located roughly in the centre of the Gold Coast in the suburb of Southport, with the suburb holding more corporate office space than anywhere else in the city. The urban area of the Gold Coast is concentrated along the coast sprawling almost 60 kilometers, joining up with the Greater Brisbane Metropolitan Area to the north and to the state border with New South Wales to the south.Prior to European settlement the area was occupied by the Yugambeh people. The demonym for the Gold Coast is Gold Coaster. The Gold Coast is a major tourist destination with a sunny, subtropical climate and has become widely known for its world-class surfing beaches, high-rise dominated skyline, theme parks, nightlife, and rainforest hinterland. The city is part of the nation's entertainment industry with television productions and a major film industry. == History == The Gold Coast is the ancestral home of a number of Indigenous clans of the Yugambeh people, including the Kombumerri, Mununjali, and Wangerriburra clans. Europeans arrived in 1823 when explorer John Oxley landed at Mermaid Beach. The hinterland's red cedar supply attracted people to the area in the mid-19th century.
