How We Help People Like You

We started 2M Locating because we recognize the critical importance of accurate locating. Lives depend on the results. That’s why we do the job right with full attention to detail on every job we do. No shortcuts. No distractions. Our sister company, Morrow Surveying, relied for years on the services of subcontracted private utility locators. We realized that by creating 2M Locating, we could execute much better utility locating ourselves while also providing top-notch service to others in our industry and related fields.

How does 2M Locating locate and identify utility lines?

2ML uses several methods for locating utility lines and services


We know the serious nature of locating work. Accidents can result in costly damage, delays and injuries. For this reason, we ensure that all of our technicians are fully trained and approach their work professionally. You can be assured of receiving quality results every time. We know that matters so you can proceed smoothly with your project, assured that you have the right information and data.

We Respect You as A Valued Customer

As mentioned above, we started 2M Locating because, like you, we were frustrated at the slowness, lack of communication, poor quality of work and general feeling of not being cared about that we experienced as a customer. Now, we wake up every day remembering how that felt and how we want our customers to feel.

We guarantee that, regardless of the size of your project, you will receive an unmatched customer experience. That is the level of service that you deserve. Discover for yourself why our competitors’ customers are jumping ship and coming over to 2M Locating. We treat you right!


Unmatched Quality of Work & Deliverables

Unfortunately, many utility locators give our industry a bad reputation by inaccurately locating and marking utilities. Our use of cutting-edge technology and highly accurate external GPS units allows us to capture images of underground structures that our competitors’ old-school technology misses. Building on this very precise input, our Digital Mapping Division can present your data in a number of unique ways that our competitors cannot.


Companies like Radiodetection and Sensors & Software make the best utility locating equipment on the market. With the complex network of infrastructure underground, it’s vital that locators use the latest technology to obtain accurate and thorough results. Many companies use older equipment with less accurate technology and more limitations. 2M Locating uses the best state-of-the-art models.

The 2M Locating Story

Sacramento natives and high school friends Matt Morrow and Chris Post took different paths in their early business lives. After graduating from college, Matt went into land surveying while Chris went into sales and digital marketing.

Flash-forward 25 years… After life taking some wild turns, Matt and Chris reconnected in early 2020 and began reflecting on their complementary skills and passions and brainstorming potential collaborative opportunities.

Matt had always been fascinated by the work done by the utility locators he subcontracted for his land surveying jobs. He appreciated that they helped prevent damage and accidents from occurring on job sites.

After thoroughly researching the industry, Matt proposed the two friends start an underground utility locating business that would allow them to leverage their mapping, marketing and technological know-how to help keep building industry workers safe and keep construction jobs on schedule.

Chris loved the mission from the start and after doing more research, he felt that Matt was really onto something as a lot of the existing utility locating companies were either using outdated technologies, charging lots of money for really small amounts of work, or both!

2M Locating was born out of these conversations.

As our business and team grow, we wake up every morning focused on one goal: preventing damage and accidents on job sites by accurately locating, mapping and documenting underground utilities.
