I am going to bid a job for a wall approx. 3foot high by 25 foot long ,it is along a driveway that they are going to get paved eventually . They have a sandstone wall there now that is falling apart ,they want the new wall moved back a couple of feet so they can pull two cars down side by side. What do you guys think I should bid this at using average price interlock block . The wall is more for looks and is really not holding soil back ,I am going to put in drainage. Thanks

sq ft x 1,00000000000000.00 should get you close

We need a new category called "Dude, what should I charge?" so all of these posts will be in one place.
Not to pick on you, Mags, but this type of question always has the same answer: only you can decide what you should charge.

I at least double my materials cost and play it by ear. If I want the job real bad if I'm slow, I'll take a little less then 40%-50%. If it's a hard job and I need to hire somebody for the day, then I'll try to get 50%-60% over materials.

Most likely, If you can't figure out how to estimate a project you might think about passing on the project.

We use a JD retaining wall placer so we'll knocked out a couple of a day. Its a costly machine but with Igor running it we've the world by the tail.
