Get Directed are the first choice for vac truck Gold Coast hire for vacuum excavation.

Hydro excavation using a vac truck is an efficient, non-destructive method of digging and taking unwanted material off site. This process can remove material from difficult to reach areas and is especially effective for digging around underground assets.

Vacuum excavation uses a highly pressurized water gurney in conjunction with an industrial vacuum to remove all debris safely and effectively. The vacuum truck has a large tank with a high pressure pump that can pneumatically suck liquids into the tank.

Our VTI and Vermeer vacuum trucks can also blast streams of water for cleaning and excavation. The water breaks up dirt and material to form a sludge or slurry. Then, using vacuum pumps, the liquid waste is removed for disposal or transported to another location for treatment.

Vacuum excavation ensures your job is completed, or prepared for further stages, with minimal damage.

Vacuum Excavation Gold Coast


Get Directed specialise in the locating and clean exposure of a variety of services using the new and innovative technique of vacuum excavation, sometimes referred to as vacuum digging or hydro excavation.

This form of non destructive digging uses a vacuum and pressurised water to remove material from the ground. The high pressure water cuts through and liquefies soil and other material. Since it is an accurate and non destructive way to excavate, vacuum excavation is ideal for service locating and avoidance of underground utilities that may be harmed using heavy mechanical machinery.

A fully Australian owned and operated company, we pride ourselves on our professional, dynamic and contemporary approach to business. We always aim to provide a fast, safe and thorough vacuum excavation job.

The Advantages of Nondestructive Digging (NDD).
Vacuum Excavation Services

Using a vacuum to break material apart and liquefy it, non destructive digging is commonly accepted as a method far safer than manual digging.

Vacuum excavation allows people to stay completely safe on the service, while the machine does all the work. Moreover, underground utilities and the surrounding ground are preserved in the NDD digging process, reducing the incidences of mishaps like trench cave-ins or accidental line damage.

In addition to damage prevention, the main goal of hydro excavation is to keep operating costs low and efficiencies high. The Gold Coast vac truck can be positioned at a distance from the operating site to avoid congestion and traffic in the suction excavation area.
