Long tradition & passion

The business was handed down to Colin’s dad from his father in 1956 when it really started to establish itself as the driveway company to trust throughout Dorset and Hampshire.

Thank you for all your help – you and the team have delivered a perfect result & it was a pleasure to do business with you.”

The work was completed in the time stated and everyone was polite and thoughtful. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your Company. Excellent in every way!”

What a very pleasant experience it was

“What a very pleasant experience it was, to deal with C W Stanley. We had our front garden cleared and paved with blocks. Initially we were given lots of help and advice to help decide exactly what we required. When they arrived, it was planned and carried out with great efficiency and exactly within the time scale they had quoted. Which was amazingly quick and a very high standard. They consulted with us throughout the process to make sure we were happy. All members of the team were friendly, courteous and hardworking throughout. We were delighted with the finished job. It was exactly what we wanted. We could not recommend highly enough. Superb.”

We have had CW Stanley in the past and…

“We have had CW Stanley in the past and when we had some further groundworks needed, there was no question about getting CW Stanley back in for the next project. I cannot recommend CW Stanley highly enough, and would give them top marks on every aspect, from communication, promptness, cleanliness, professionalism and most importantly their standard of work – the whole team take pride in their work and nothing is too much trouble. Go with CW Stanley – you won’t be disappointed! Thank you CW Stanley!”

The best in the business

“CW Stanley have completed a couple of driveway jobs for me. The most professional, courteous and hardworking company I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I cannot recommend them enough, from initial call to quote, to visit to works – they are exemplary in every way. Great value and nothing at all is too much hassle for them, the best in the business by a very long way.”

We used C W Stanley 11 years ago to…

“We used C W Stanley 11 years ago to originally re vamp our driveway and due to their work ethic then we had them back to extend our driveway due to my new business venture. All personnel pleasant & polite. They worked efficiently and completed the job as planned. Definitely recommend for all your driveway and landscaping needs.”

Exceptional work

“C W Stanley were delightful to deal with from the first time I contacted them. They; and in particular Colin were hugely supportive during a long period of time while we deliberated design options and prepared multiple quotes for me with several site visits. They were very patient with us! The work completed is exceptional and the team; including multiple family members were all hugely professional. CW Stanley have the skills, equipment and desire to complete exceptional work.

I cannot recommend them more highly. I would not go anywhere else for similar work. A massive thank you to the C W Stanley team.”


“CW Stanley were highly recommended by a friend in the building trade, and they totally lived up to expectations. Two drives re-laid over four days at two locations. Delighted with finished results, but it’s the whole customer-focussed approach that make them an outstanding company to deal with. The business consists of family members and long-serving employees, which is surely a factor. Thank you CW Stanley from a very happy customer.”


Colin Stanley and his smartly turned out team arrived on programme, prepared the area to be resurfaced and laid the new blacktop, with the minimum of disturbance to the residents. All in all a thoroughly professional job from an hard working and extremely competent organisation.”
