Netpro as a company deals with hundreds of contracting companies every year, you can imagine not everything runs smoothly and to plan.

So imagine my surprise when our dealings with Red Dirt Haulage were concluded and there was not one problem to speak of.

Ben was punctual, courteous, professional and always made sure we were kept up to date with any issues on site or during travel. Ben also saw a way to speed up our job by supplying a different piece of equipment, so he promptly did so and helped to ensure a continuous flow to the work. His paperwork, including safety and site forms were done as required and done correctly. All in all, we were very pleased with our dealings with Ben and Red Dirt Haulage.

I will be using Red Dirt Haulage again in the future and have mo hesitation in recommending his company and services to any other business.
