Digsafe NQ are the underground utility locating, safe digging and hydrovac excavation specialists, for North Queensland.

Based in Cairns, this locally owned and operated company services clients across the region, from Cardwell to Gordonvale, Atherton to Kuranda and Palm Cove to Mossman, as well as remote locations on request.

How do we do it? Firstly, we locate any underground utilities, using the latest ground and concrete penetrating radar equipment. We’re accredited with Telstra, Ergon and Dial Before You Dig. We know what we’re looking for and we know where to find it.

Once we know where to dig (or not to dig), we get to work, providing non-destructive excavation services with our 4,000 Litre High CFM Vac Excavator. It features a High Pressure Water pump, lockable hose reel and flexible spray wand, allowing us to access pretty much any site and location.

What can we penetrate? Almost all soil surfaces, from tight clay and hard compacted earth, to sandy riverbeds and alluvial sediment. We work in all weather conditions and our combination of blast and suck will leave you with a clean site, ready to go.
