made of plastic or utilize plastic couplings.

all liabilities, damages, losses, claims, suits or judgments, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees incurred by PUL) brought
by third parties against PUL as a result of PUL’s failure to locate underground services for any reason whatsoever or as a result of

Feel free to contact us for any of your needs!  We stand ready to assist and will respond as soon as possible.




We are serious about our work.  You should be, too.  Therefore, we have a minimum charge of $300 for any utility locating project, no matter the size.  This fee covers the first two hours after we arrive on site.  Each additional hour performing on site services will be billed per hour.  Keep in mind, we can cover significant ground in the first two hours, so additional time for completion may not be required.  Call for pricing on larger projects.


Please be as descriptive as possible when outlining project details.  List the utilities to be located, and the extents of the locate.  For example, "Locate from meter at SW corner of property to metal barn 500' East".  This will allow us to perform the job much more quickly, thus saving you money.
