Cost of trucking


I have an area behind the house where I could use a bunch of fill....A neighbour a mile or so away is building a new barn and called asking if I want some. I would have to pay the trucking, he will load it. He is asking the trucker how much that will be. What is a reasonable cost for this...anyone know?

The way I look at it, he needs to get rid of this fill anyways, so I am sort of doing him a favor. I just dont want to get ripped off here and no idea about trucking costs.......

 

Any ideas?

This is when you could use some of our "imported" dump truck drivers but since you don't have any - - - - - I would get at least 3 or 4 bids and then you'll have a better feel for the project.

Good Luck,

meller

 The sign has been up for 2 years now......I have had a little response, but this is the first withn a decent amount of fill......

 

As for the imported drivers, we have lots too....most have towels on their heads....lol

The farmer has the trucker all lined up already, he either dumps it in a big pile on his property or somewhere close by (me).....Thats why I am hoping to get it cheap.....

You Know how to drive a truck don't you? you could rent a dump truck MUCH cheaper that hiring some one to haul it ,  I would think..

 This is what it runs in this Area, depends on how much you have to haul and what size ya need,  a trucker would probably charge 2-3 time this much.

 Dont know...I could take all he has....Thing is, I have no money to spend  on something like this...I was hoping that truckers would see the sign and just dump the stuff in my swamp......over time it would get filled in.I dont have to do this, it would just improve my land. I have 1 1/2 acres......1/2 acre of it is swamp

The land around here is full of rocks...there are gravel pits everywhere.....the top coat is worthless.

 

If its not free or next thing to it, I wont be bothering.....

A half-acre is 2500 sq. yds and a foot deep would be over 800 cu. yds. Holy chit. . .which, BTW, is what comes out of Holy Cows. biggrin
