Join us at the forefront of the world of locating and explore sides of the profession that many are unfamiliar with. When it comes to locating, it’s important to know how to properly assess your surroundings, communicate with everyone around you, understand the type of property you’re working on, and follow a reliable routine with known success. Most importantly, you have to be prepared for unexpected variables.
