Looking for some input on how you guys charge for hauling material such as bulk mulch, stone, dirt is my question. The big guys are getting like $80/load for a hauling charge but they are getting what 5-6 tons? So it would not be fair for me to charge $80/load for the 2 tons ill have in my dump insert. So I am thinking charge an $80 hauling fee for 8 tons regardless of # of trips. This means for one 2 ton load there would but a $27 hauling fee, two loads would be a $54 hauling fee and so on. They would be getting a discount compared to the big guys charging $80 no matter if its a full or half load. This would cover my expenses and not screw the customers. Any thoughts?
