Growing up in the excavation business, Linhares Excavating's owner Frank Linhares, Jr. literally learned from the ground up. As the son, grandson, great-grandson, and nephew of local excavating contractors he spent weekends and summers during childhood laboring with a shovel and first drove a bulldozer at the age of 13. After High School Frank went to work full time for his father's company, F. J. Linhares Co., Inc. (a Mattapoisett & Southcoast excavation contractor), and has worked in the excavating and trucking businesses ever since. He has had his CDL Class A license since he was old enough to apply for it and has driven all manner of trucks throughout the U.S. including flat beds with over-sized loads, hazmat, reefer trailers and 10-car carriers not to mention the numerous 10 wheeler and tri-axle dump trucks and dump trailers through the years. Frank takes pride in his work and enjoys planning each new job.

Our small, family-oriented company enjoys working with local home owners as well as commercial businesses to provide just the right service for any excavation or trucking need.

Having worked in all aspects of the excavation industry for over 30 years as well as driving over-the-road during the winters and down time, has enabled Frank to know what works and what does not both in the excavating business and the trucking industry.
