Perry Cruce

After trying to find multiple excavators in the area, being promised one company would do the work and then delaying and delaying we thought we would never get someone to repair our leaking pond overflow! We saw a Coal Creek Excavation post on Facebook and messaged them. Sam came out within a couple of days, said he would do the work, and we had a written estimate the next day!! He started the job the next week and completed it in 1 1/2 days! They did an excellent job, cleaned the job site and now we have… Read more “Perry Cruce”

Jacob Freeman

We needed help with the excavation, backfill and leveling of one of our projects and Isaac and Liberty Excavating helped us out a ton. Even with rain and weather conditions not cooperating in the least bit Isaac kept at it and made it work for us. I greatly appreciate their help and would definitely recommend them for your next… Read more “Jacob Freeman”

Josh Turner

Sam is very thorough and does his job well. I had him out for a 5 hour run and was very happy with his work. What meant the most to me was that he arrived early and was ready to work at the time he said he was going to start. I didn’t have to wait around for people to show up on their time. Overall very happy and would use service… Read more “Josh Turner”

Sam impressed us from his response to a request for a quote to the completion of the job. We had Sam come out to replace a culvert and regrade and rock our driveway.

If you need excavation work done call Sam at Coal Creek… Read more “Angie Ginzel”

Fawn B

Highly recommend Isaac for your excavating needs! I had a smaller space in town that needed drainage, a fence torn out, and gravel. There was not a lot of room for them to work and they nailed it. They got the job done quickly, easy to work with, and very… Read more “Fawn B”

I am VERY pleased with the work we had done by Nellinger! Great communication, price, service! It would have taken my husband and I way too long to clear this. Sam has the equipment, skill and knowledge to meet your needs! Super… Read more “Diana Smith”

Brad Venzon

We had been having trouble with flooding in our horse walkouts and a local, well known company had been stringing us along for over a year. I heard of Nellinger Excavation, so I sent them a message. I received a call back in less than a day, and Sam came to look at our job within a few days. He saw what our issue was and he came up with a plan, which was extremely similar to what the other company said they would do. We scheduled our job, but had to postpone it a few times,… Read more “Brad Venzon”

Dawn Edwards

We highly recommend Sam! Professional, honest, courteous, reasonable pricing and great communication. He was early both days he was out on our property, checked in with us throughout the day to make sure we were satisfied with his progress and open to any adjustments we asked of him. This young man is as hard-working as they come. If he says he’s going to do something, he’s guaranteed to follow through. Thank you, Sam! We will definitely be hiring you again for additional work we need… Read more “Dawn Edwards”

Patrick Lazoen

We took a chance and hired someone to redo our driveway and expand it more. If people knew our driveway before knows how much grass mixture there was and how run down it was getting due to driving and rain. We love how this turned out from Liberty Excavating! He did a great job from the fast assessment at the house to getting us the estimate to turn around time of completing it the next week. We are planning on having him do more projects in the… Read more “Patrick Lazoen”

Emily Fussner

We recently had Sam help us with a few residential projects for us, taking down a few dead trees and helping us make room for new ones. He was always prompt, professional, and the price just can’t be beat. I appreciate how careful he was with our existing landscaping and yard, too. Highly recommend Nellinger Excavation for your big or small… Read more “Emily Fussner”


We recently had Sam clear a little over an acre for our future home. He was definitely the most responsive and reasonable on the price. He was very professional at all times, and did a beautiful job despite having some unexpected equipment issues. He completed the job a full day ahead of schedule and communicated with us continually to ensure he was meeting expectations. I can not say enough about his work ethic and professionalism. We highly recommend Nellinger… Read more “J&J”

Randy Scoon

Issac was great to work with. Having to replace a septic field discharge tile in Feb. was a challenge in itself. We called and had an estimate the same day. He was there to start digging the next day. Between snowy, wet weather and not exactly knowing where the problem was he got us up and going in no time. He backfield and leveled the yard with great care to make it perfect. We would highly recommend MC Excavating to anyone needing this type of… Read more “Randy Scoon”
