Got a call to remove this small slab in a back yard. No haul off(dumpster already on site). I measured it to approx 350sqft for circle pad and lil pathway. Ill have to break it into smaller pieces due to only have 6' pathway to travel into yard from side of house. I came up with a price of $430.00. Am i in the ball park? http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy40/onekrayzeekajun/42E300FB-2BD3-4549-B0C9-A5406A1DADBF-978-000000723F9F6D18.jpg http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy40/onekrayzeekajun/1F7EF264-04F2-4F83-AD5D-9E833F96162A-978-0000007233A229DC.jpg http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/yy40/onekrayzeekajun/902F227E-1F50-4E46-BC15-6BAD85461F5D-978-0000007226EF65A7.jpg

I would say its a fair price. But then again I'm sure you'll get a lot of different responses. But I personally say its a fair price.

I would have bid 100 an hour. Your dumping onsite so no hauling. No hired help. Shouldn't take more then four hours.

Heck ya that's good. I would have probably done it for that with a sledge as busted and cracked up as it is already. Looks like a quick $430 for you with your skid..

You have to break that up by hand, load it out by hand, and clean up by hand.

Your price is very good. I would say no less than $500 and no more than $1200. You have about 1/2 day two to three guys.

How thick is it? To me, as cracked up as it is it does'nt look that thick. I think you'll knock it out in no time at all..

I thought your skid steer wouldn't fit back there.

I think thats fair. If you hustle you could knock that out in ~2 hours.

As much as you want to make in 2 hours! My minimum for skid work is 450 since you will spend more time driving there and back and chaining it down then actually moving concrete.

make sure you put a clause in there about the unknown of concrete.

Had a job very similar I got bit on, 8x16 pad. Maybe not quite 16ft long. Dug down on the edge was roughly 4inches thick. Showed up with the bobcat, couldn't get it to break into a manageable piece. So I went and got a saw. Cut as deep as I could, still wouldn't break.. Then I got my electric Bosch jackhammer on it.. Broke the edge off.. That took all day. Turned out about 2ft in they turned down and made it close to 8inches thick.

I didn't know and neither did the customer. I am just saying always expect the worse with concrete..

That slab is all cracked . It will just break up .
I would just stack the concrete cubes 5 pieces high and then drive them out on the forks .
If you break it in small pieces you will have to load buy hand .
I would charge 550 1/2 day charge.
Most of the time i could get the day out of it buy dumping the creek my self and dropping some fill and grading the yard . 1050 +- John

IMHO your price is good with a skid steer. Money you didn't have, very little to do.

I don't remove any concrete for less than $2 a square foot, and its still not a money maker for me. It seems like when I do have jobs like this, there is always something that goes wrong. Wire mesh in the concrete, rebar in the concrete, footing under the concrete, ect. Concrete is hard on everything, buckets, machines, tires/tracks, blowen hoses on breaker, ect and im not about to beat on my machine to give someone a good deal.

I passed on this job due to all the rain, i would have spent more time playing in the mud than getting the concrete out. I went back to look at it again, the ground was so soft i couldnt walk on it.

It's amazing how fast a persons perspective of doing a job changes when the rain and mud moves in to stay,even when you have a track machine.

plus it was for a buddy of mine and he is "always on a budget". he had the dumpster hauled off and said if you can break it up and haul off for $400 the job is yurs. thts the main reason i passed on this job. plus it was a 20min drive each way.:nono:

I would have bid atleast $500 with the understanding that if it is thicker than normal, 4-6", that the job goes to hourly.
