About Us

Professional Excavation, Earthmoving & Cartage

Operating out of Fernside, North Canterbury is a family business catering to a diverse clientele.

Operating out of Fernside, North Canterbury is a family business catering to a diverse clientele requiring professional excavation, earthmoving and cartage services. Hurley Excavation and Cartage was founded in 2007 by Cliff and Jill Hurley. Dean worked hard and helped to manage the business from the onset of it. In 2014 Dean and his wife Victoria purchased the business and took over the family firm. To this day Cliff and Jill are still very much involved with their wisdom and knowledge which is why it is still regarded as a family business. As a business though we value all our staff and their families as well. For these reasons we pride ourselves as a family business. Dean and Victoria both have had rural upbringings, so understand the rural requirements that most clients are looking for. Victoria is a qualified primary school teacher, who also works in the business as much as possible.

  • We have a can do attitude!
  • We`re happy to listen to the client and what they want.
  • We listen to them and hear what outcome they want to achieve.
