Dan read the CPA model conditions. Then write your own. You don't need to buy anything. Set out your conditions for each job and then get the client to sign before commencement of works.

would that work?

eg. when hired on day rate, man and machine are a tool under the hirers direction and responsibilty. ie if a service is damaged in the ground the responsiblity is on the hirer to pay for any damage.

we basically had a job recently when client told us to dig in x and told us there are no services, we damaged a gas main and he started to take me to court for payment, i forked out in the end but its a big loss for me. fair dinkum if i quote for a job and im earning a profit for taking responsibilty of all works but i dont want responsibility in the case of cheap days hire of digger and driver.

Dan they either sign a damage waver or you don't do the job mate ..... simple. It would be sensible for you to get your own scanner and a good operator that dug as if services are present if you think they are regardless of what you were told. I would not have given in to your client that said there was no services. His word against yours. Never assume there is nothing underground even if you are in the middle of a wood or field.
