Our Key Staff
Anne & Phil
Anna was always extremely courteous in our email and phone communications; and Tony was just the best when it came to the care and efficiency of his expert demolition process. First time we have demolished a house and it went so much smoother and more rapidly than we had imagined. We would recommend Ballards to anyone.

We are extremely happy with the end result and wish to thank you, Tony and the team for everything – we now have a blank canvas to work with! Considering the junk attached to the old shed I was very happy with how tidy the site was left. Very impressed and appreciative!
Ballard’s are by far the best demolition company I have come across. Tony took the time to quote our job properly (not just factor in extra charges for things that weren’t necessary).
Tony stayed in touch with us while we had some issues with other work being done on our site and he is extremely patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Tony always made time to take my calls as well which was really appreciated. Once demo day came, Tony and the team arrived exactly when they said they would.
Our site was in a high density area with a lot of apartments surrounding the site and Tony and the team were professional in every sense, and kept all the neighbours happy by managing the works extremely well. He has all the right equipment for an efficient demolition. He kept everything watered down (to minimise dust), and best of all they were able to complete our whole job in 3 days, which was far quicker than I ever expected considering the amount of materials and buildings they had to remove.
I can honestly say that I believe Tony treated our block of land like it was his own. They worked extremely hard to remove all the rubble, and left the site immaculate, flat, clean and ready to build on. They also did a great job with getting building approvals and organising sewer capping for our job also. And as a great bonus they delivered a google drive full of photos of the job from start to finish which shows everything they did in a lot of detail.
Finally Anna was so nice and pleasant to deal with in the office. She was responsive, polite, and extremely quick to get back to us on any questions. So overall, I can honestly say I would definitely recommend Ballard’s to anyone considering any demolition work, and if I demolish another house again I’ll definitely be using Ballards.
Tony and Anna were fantastic! They were incredibly responsive, answering any question as soon as we asked, they gave the most comprehensive quote of the 5 quotes we received, and they stuck to it, even after the job went a bit pear shaped. Tony called me every night while on the job to keep me up to date with all the details of the job I felt like I was onsite. The work was done quickly, and well. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you guys.
Did a terrific job on the demolition of our small house riddled with asbestos. Were on site ahead of when we expected and done within a few short days – highly recommended.
Tony and Anna have been absolutely amazing. They are so genuine, kind and understanding (with the patience of saints). We had an awful situation to deal with (our property was riddled with asbestos and we hit a few surprises that were very unexpected along the way). We couldn’t have picked a better company to take care of it all for us. I would have no hesitation recommending them again and again and have already done so! Go with Ballard’s, you won’t regret it.
I approached Tony and Anna from Ballard’s Earthmoving & Demolition as I had removed an overgrown mass of trees and growth from the back yard of my property at Donnybrook and I was left with a numerous large root balls, tree stumps, unlevel surfaces and an old shed that needed to be removed. I needed multiple types of services to bring my back yard in order. This is when I found Ballard’s Earthmoving & Demolition that could provide me with all the necessary services that I required. Tony and Anna came out onsite, assess my job and discussed my requirements and different options, sharing their valuable industry experience with me, to ensure that we moved forward to meet my final needs and how to achieve this in the most cost-effective manner. Tony’s wealth of knowledge ensured that all aspects were considered from drainage through to my future plans for the space. During the earthworks and demolition, Tony and his team work tirelessly to ensure that the vision I had for my backyard was achieved. Having 25 year’s experience in the construction industry myself, I had great expectations of what I wanted to achieve. From my first initial phone call to Anna through to the final finish of my yard, Ballard’s Earthmoving & Demolition were able to meet my expectations and beyond to achieve the ultimate outcome. I can highly recommend the services of Ballard’s Earthmoving & Demolition. Their communication, attention to detail and wealth of knowledge in the industry is exceptional.
Anna, Thank You – never have we experienced a contractor being so professional in providing these photos for end of project info. Thank you very much.
Tony & Anna were a pleasure to deal with, very professional and friendly, I would highly recommended Ballards.
Recently demolished our 3 bedroom house. Didn’t try to rip us off like the two other quotes we got. Sent sample of cladding off for asbestos testing which the others didn’t. The others just said they’d factor in asbestos to the cost. Ended up Ballards came in at HALF the price of the other two. They sifted the ground to get debris out and smoothed off the site. Tony was great to deal with and I highly recommend them. Now to show I wasn’t asked to give a review at all, I had two kind of negatives: the water line got hit twice. Once before I told them where it was and once after but in hindsight I should have marked it out on the ground. And there is still bits of concrete and tile in the sand. HOWEVER, unless Tony had a collender he’d never get these bits out and I’m being pedantic.
Ballard’s Earthmoving & demolition is prompt with me on all documentation work and nicely executes the whole demolition process. They can’t be easily beat on price too.Tony took only three days to knock down our three-bedroom house. Site has a fair bit of asbestos and Tony was following all protocols and procedures prior to knocking the building to make sure the site is free of asbestos. They move earth and give a good finish look to the site before leaving. We will highly recommend Ballard’s for your demolition job.
Everything went extremely well, and huge thank you to the whole team. The team on site did a terrific job, everything went smoothly and their attention to detail in leaving the site spotless was greatly appreciated. Communication with Anna & Anthony through the process and with the team when they were here was clear and easy.
If we need further work done in the future we will definitely be giving you a call and we would definitely recommend you to anyone we know who needs work done.

Great business to work with – professional and reliable! Thanks Tony and Anna for making the process of demolishing our home an easy one!
Tony rescued us from a pool job that went wrong. He was initially brought in to remove a tree stump with his excavator as the original excavator proved to be too small. The pool company made the mistake of installing the pool to high – this caused a lot of issues. Tony stayed to help us with the earthworks – levelling out the area, drainage etc. I’m very grateful for the work he did – he recognised we were in trouble and was professional in his approach. I would happily recommend him.
