Superb Service

“Superb service by Chris.  He responded on-site in one business day.  He exceeded our requirements – covered a wide range of power, water, and telephone lines, some of which were buried quite deep.  Chris combines unwavering focus on the task with very personable client relationships.”

Marked and ready to go!

“We needed a private well marked at our new home in Leicester, NC and we were having a very tough time finding anyone to do this. I found Target Locating online in a google search and what a GREAT find! We made an appointment and Chris showed up on time and was able to locate our water lines very quickly! We are marked and ready to go!!! Thanks Target Locating Environmental!!!”

Highly Recommended

“I needed a fairly quick mapping of the electrical lines from my house to the barn before demolition and reconstruction of the barn could begin, and I had forgotten all about finding the lines. Chris responded with a needed fast date, arrived as scheduled and flagged the lines. The service was professional, Chris was friendly and I could not be happier with his work. I’m in Tryon in Polk County, and being relatively local, Target was considerably less expensive than the firms out of Charlotte, who were also too busy to meet my schedule. I highly recommend Target Locating if you need location services.”
