Can you undertake groundworks, or dig a trench?

Unfortunately it is not possible for us to complete significant groundworks (i.e. digging a trench) to install an EV charger. On a case by case basis, we are able to complete simple jobs such as lifting of a paving slab. Please show your home surveyor. 

The reason we are unable to offer groundworks is because it requires specialist equipment and there is the risk of interfering with drains, tree roots, and other unknown issues that do not become apparant until starting the job. 

If you believe you need groundworks, we recommend the following: 

  • Firstly, be absolutely certain you cannot install the charger onto the side of your property. This is the simplest way to avoid complex and potentially expensive groundworks.
  • Get in touch with a local groundworks specialist for a quote. 
  • Complete the groundworks yourself - bear in mind that for us to proceed, the trench needs to be 450mm deep and 200mm wide.
