Ok heres a good question. How much should I charge to put down 40yds of shredded top soil at 2in depth for turf? I will be using a mini skid loader for $140 a day and charging the customer $60 per man hour. The top soil will cost $760 and delivery will be $80 after I marked it up. I guess the real question is how many hours will it take? Any help will help! Thanks in advance!

IMO....you should charge 1 day (8 hrs) + all cost with your markup. By the time you get loader and carry it back you will have used a whole day.

Loader 140.00
Labor 480.00
Delivery loader 75.00
Shredded (:confused:) top soil 760.00
Mark up $100.00
Fuel 20.00

total 1575.00 + tax on material.
