I got four bids - four bids and Austin came in far less than the other three by far and offered to remove my small tree, stump and all for free. How was the quality of his work ? Amazing! My neighbor would not let them blow the dirt off the street and of course we then had heavy rains. I called Austin to tell him we now had mud on the street that was messy and after his low bid he sent out a PROFESSIONAL cleaning service the next day to clean our street. Keep in mind it all would of been avoided if my neighbor would of let them clean the way they normally do clean up. I would be happy to talk or email with anyone regarding my referral as well as show photos. I asked Austin how he could come in so much lower then the other companies and he explained they are building their business that makes me want to see him succeed. Thank you, Austin!

Review by in Ballwin, MO
Can't say enough good about Starnes Skid Loader. Austin is the owner/operator and he did a GREAT job on our backyard building a retaining wall and bringing in truck loads of dirt and grading. He had his own equipment nice John Deere excavators etc. We had nine other companies come by to look at the project we wanted done and none of them came through with even a formal quote when they said they would, and many wanted a lot of money upfront to even provide a quote and they wanted to nickel and dime us for some other items we said we'd like done saying it would cost extra for this and that. Austin gave a quote on the spot and he did not want a lot of money upfront like the others. When asked him to do a few extras his reply was, :no problem that's not a big deal I'll go ahead and do that", and he got the job done. He was very interested in the project and had some great suggestions to improve the vision of what we wanted for the yard. I would highly recommend Austin and his company for any landscaping or retaining wall job you'd like to have done.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
