How do I find a Directional Drilling (HDD) contractor in my area?
So… you’ve got a project coming up that requires directional drill services and aren’t sure who to turn to? Don’t fret, you’re not alone. We receive several calls a week from customers asking the same question. As much as we’d love to service everyone in the country... logistics just don’t make it possible.
Most directional drilling companies cover a wide territory, but unfortunately most only travel for larger projects. It isn’t cheap or very feasible to haul a large machine and crew around from state to state. Finding someone local is going to be your best option. But just how do you do that? A quick google search can help, sure, but often you’ll see the big-name companies will pop up first in those search results.
Our tip to you, whether you be a homeowner just trying to have a new line installed underneath your driveway, a public service company just hoping to stick to the budget on a small project, or someone just plain wanting a horizontal bore done is this:
***********Ask the sales reps.***********
Turn to the manufacturers of directional drill equipment. Odds are, you will have one relatively close to where your project is. They are making and selling the machines & they will be able to point you to the direction of someone who can help you with the work. These companies will have a good idea or list of who performs directional drilling or HDD services around your desired location.
