How to hire a vacuum truck operator
When you need to hire a vacuum truck with an operator there are a few things you can look out for to ensure you hire the best vac truck operator for your job. First, you need to roughly know the size of your excavation as this impacts the size of the vac truck that you will need to hire. This will, in turn, narrow your options for vac truck operators as well. Next, what is the clearance and accessibility to the excavation job? Some vac trucks have boom lifts and can only work within a small perimeter, whereas other vac trucks have extension hoses that allow them to work up to 100 metres from the vac truck.
When you are discussing the size and access of the excavation project with your potential vacuum truck operator don’t be afraid to ask about their previous experience. A vac truck operator that has the experience and skills is always a safer bet than someone who doesn’t. Adding to this, ask them where they are taking the waste spoil after your job and whether there are any added costs involved with the dumping. If you hire an experienced vac truck operator who is transparent about any additional costs you’re guaranteed a good experience completing your excavation project.
