I'd shop around a few trucking company you should be able to get that price down. Most tri axles only bring in 75 an hour here the centipedes is where the money at. Theban run over a 100 an hour. Also a f450/550 size would be miserable moving that much tonage your looking at maybe 4 ton max. Best bet is find a owner operator and go from there never let the quary delver they make money on the stone and always over charge the delivery.
