Fantastic!"Alani did a fantastic job clearing two areas on the property. He had really helpful suggestions and was a great communicator before and throughout the project. He is highly skilled and it was amazing to see what he could do with the D9 in a short amount of time. He was kind and professional and I am very grateful for all he did to transform the land into usable space. Thanks so much Alani!"

Simply the best!"Alani was amazing. He made our vision for our property development become a reality. Our property was not an easy one and had lave contours that made leveling difficult but to look at it today you would have thought it was flat as a pancake. He made the difficult look easy. He also installed our septic tank and knowing the difficulty of our property that was not an easy job as well. He was very professional and did a lot of extras that were not his responsibility to take care of. I honestly wish I had more money to give because I would have given him more. He was well worth every penny. Thanks for your hard work! You rock! Mahalo "

"Mr. Alani possesses great listening skills. That's the single most important quality I look for in a contractor. He also happens to be a highly skilled, heavy equipment operator. He intuitively understood what I was trying to accomplish on our property and gave suggestions that made the end result even nicer.Maybe one wouldn't think bulldozing requires nuance but that absolutely is the case. He "sculpted" my property creating the foundation for the foundation of my future home. He preserved natural features that will enhance the aesthetic of my property and increase the property value. Apparently the rock beneath my "lava-lot" was particularly challenging. According to my neighbors, Mr. Alani worked half a day more than he estimated, but Mr. Alani didn't revise his estimate and in fact never mentioned it to me at all. The price he quoted was the price I paid. (I was not present to observe the work. I only heard from my neighbors how long he worked.)No trash was left at the worksite. Not a bit. This has not always been my experience with contractors on my other properties.Mr. Alani even took the time to explain some Hawaiian customs and family traditions to me. It truly was a pleasure working with him.Highly skilled workers are always in demand. If Mr. Alani can get you into his schedule, my recommendation is to hire him while you can."

"I first contacted Mr. Alani before moving to the Big Island, via his website and using the Contact Us form. His response back was prompt, the next day… and he called me. He took the time to chat with me for quite a while, answering all my questions and providing valuable input regarding how much an excavation could be; depending on the property.Once I finally moved to the Big Island and bought property, I inquired again; but this time I was unsure if I wanted all of my property excavated. I had spent a lot of time manually clearing paths throughout it and I thought I wanted to keep some of my “jungle”. Again, he was very responsive to all my questions and was willing to come and look at my property.Because of his input and knowledge of the environment, climate, etc. and my small parcel of land, the best decision was to clear most of my property.He did such a great job listening to what I wanted, by shaping the gradually sloped terrain and leaving trees around my lot; that were left to maintain a barrier for privacy.Mr. Alani is pleasant, a great communicator, quick to respond, does great work, and also has contacts for referrals for other services, which I’ve already used for fencing.I will use his services again as he also does septic system work. I highly recommend him."

"Alani got back to us right away and was quickly able to fit our lot into his busy schedule. We worked with our budget and was so skilled he was able to spare some amazing trees and features on our little lot while also flattening the rest. Super professional and skilled! We would highly recommend him for any job!"
