Why no replies?

...because it is a ridiculous question.

lets just start with your overhead ..how much is your advertising,interest and bank charges, down time, your labor burden downtime,office supplies, rent,tax's telephone,radios uniforms etc etc!!

Think its the same as ours?

estimate your own job ...cost your materials , labor & equipment ... how about general conditions ...should I estimate the job on drivng 4 days to get there or are you 5 minutes away?

Never let your competition bid your work.

Your costs are your costs... you may decide to take a lower profit but your costs will never change.

What might get some responses ..

...how long using abc type of equipment with easy access would it take to rip out x amount of old sod ...add x amount of soil and relay new sod.

Cool million sounds good to me. Then retire, go on a nice vacation to Austraila for a couple weeks, buy a new truck, then in a month when you get board start up a LCO because it feels like the right thing to do.

st augustin $56 a pallet 500 sft

getting the sod for $1316 for all 16 pallets with deviery included $82.25 pallet delivered

1) so what are you actually paying?
2)If they are 500 sq ft pallets, why are you getting 16? 13.5 pallets needed for 6700 sq ft
3)have you seen this sod that your getting for $56/pallet? When the going rate picked up at the farm is 80-100/pallet?
4) find out what the farm would charge to install, if they are charging 56 and they charge you $50 to install you could just sit their and watch. you would only have to worry about prep work. If I sub it out to the farm, sod,delivered, and installed $195....and I charge $250-$275/pallet plus prep work.

Need Cheap Supplier For St. Augustine
Are There Any Reasonable Sod Farms That Deliver To Tampa Bay Areas

I would be thinking $5963.

BTW: that sod is almost double the price I am paying.

If you get it for that price that would be great.
That is a pretty straight forward job that should take no more than 2 days for a crew of 2.

Good money in my book.
