Please help on price

I had a mulch job I finished today where I moved 3 very large piles of composted leaf mulch. The customer had this delivered from someone who works for the local parks dept. where it is free. Usually I charge $75 /yd. to pick-up, deliver and spread, but it is a little different with this job. It took me about seven hrs to move all this stuff, and the beds are quite a way away from the piles as well.

I 'm not sure exactly howmany yards it was , but my guess would be around 10-12. What do I charge? I counted about 33 wheelbarrows per pile. As we all know, mulching the most fun, but it it very profitable, so I want to maximize my profits on this one. Any ideas. The customer is an A+ and they trust my pricing, so I didn't bid on it beforehand. Thanks

I'd charge them $40.00 per hour, per man. If you did this yourself, which I am assuming and used nothing more than a pitchfork and a wheelbarrow they should be looking at at least $280.00-$300.00. I'd go for the higher end.
