“Competitive Quote”

Eden Husband

We wanted to use a local contractor and have had good service from Peter in the past. We found his quote to be very competitive and we like how organised Peter and his team are. The work was completed on the dates agreed. If you want good communication and a well organised team, I would recommend Peter Hansen Drainage.

“Highly Recommended”

Ben Giesen

We had to find a company to design and install new septic tanks and sand trench effluent fields for several new houses we were building. The new systems are now in place as per our request and Peter Hansen Drainage did a good job. We found they deliver projects on time, offer a professional service that is easy to use, and work in well with other contractors. Highly recommended.
