“A big THANK YOU for a “job well done” on the work you and your assistant did on our septic system in Charlotte on Tuesday June 26, 2012. As you recall I reside in Indiana and my sister lives in Battle Creek and we appreciated the professional way the job was handled. There was no reason for us to even be there.

In the future if someone asks for a reference, please feel free to give them my name and phone number.”

– Thanks again for your help, Terry L. Moore

“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you have done for us building our lagoon. Your ability to complete the lagoon within the projected time and budget is greatly appreciated.

You evidently have made quite an impression with the local and state authorities. Ken said he recently received a call from one of our competitors to tell him that the facility you built is the talk of the State!

Through the years of being in business we have rarely encountered anyone that works as long and hard and has the work ethic that you have.

Thanks again for an outstanding job.”

– Sincerely, Terry & Nancy Fielder

“A special thanks to Mike Bell & his excavating company for going the “Extra Mile”. You might not have the shiniest trucks around, but you sure have the shiniest work ethic.”

– God bless you, John & Pat Payne
