“Please accept our deepest appreciation and sincere thanks for the job you and your employees did at the sixth grade center.  The driveway to load our buses has increased both the safety of our students and the efficiency with which we can dismiss school.  The set-up works perfectly and none of it would have been possible without the efforts of Miles Excavating and its employees.  It is the effort of dedicated people like you that continues to make the Basehor-Linwood School District a great place to be and a great place for our children to be educated.” – Jill Hackett & Don Swartz, Basehor Linwood School District

“I want to congratulate you for the high quality work you did on the County Road 2 project.  It looks great and is a much needed improvement to the area.  I also wanted to thank you for keeping the corner of 24/40 and 158th Street open for as long as you did while construction was under way.  I really appreciate your efforts and forethought in allowing access to the bank until the final phases.  It was a big help to us.” – Ronald C. Johnson, President & CEO, Community National Bank

“Steve, The City of Lee’s Summit Public Works wish to inform you and your company of the professional way your personnel conducted business on Longview, Pryor and Shearer Street projects.  You and your staff completed the projects with quality and promptness.  Furthermore, Superintendent John Conrad expected this from his crews, while not forgetting the respect and courtesy shown to the residents in the project areas.  His leadership was evident on a daily basis and all three of these qualities were given priority.  John’s special night trips in storms to check on flooding concerns, his Sunday monitoring of job sites and addressing after hour problems did not go unnoticed by our staff.  Also, we would like to thank him for a positive attitude throughout the three projects.”  The City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri

“I wanted to let your company know how pleased I am with the quality of work and professionalism of your employees.  Every one of the guys I communicated with was pleasant and helpful.  They seemed genuinely interested in my questions and concerns, and were all very helpful and friendly.  They are good ambassadors for your company.  The customer service provided by all of your crews was exceptional.  I have also told the Overland Park city representatives how pleased I am with Miles Excavating.  Please let your crews know they are doing a great job.  A pleased customer.” – resident, Overland Park, Kansas

“…We have observed their team work, professionalism, friendliness and consideration of residents, and, remarkably, their excellent planning so as to maximize effort and results.  It has been truly enjoyable for us.  This crew is incredible.  We hope you share this letter with them.  They deserve to know how much they are appreciated.  Thank you.” – resident, Olathe, Kansas

“I am one of the residents who lives on 65th Terrace.  I wanted to let you know how much my family appreciates how friendly and considerate your workmen are!  They have done a wonderful job making this process as painless as possible.  Thank you!” – resident, Overland Park, Kansas

“Your timely and quality execution of the work involved in this high visibility project is something in which you and your company should take great pride.  Again, congratulations on another job well done!” – William D. Brown, Director of Public Works, The City of Overland Park
