Due to the efforts of the Ohio Landscape Association, its members, members of the Ohio Congress, and other state associations, the new rules and regulations for private commercial motor vehicles with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) between 10,001 and 26,000 pounds operating in intrastate commerce has been rescinded.

Looking for some input on how you guys charge for hauling material such as bulk mulch, stone, dirt etc...here 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?

i charge the same as the supply yards sometimes more. your a contractor not a hauling company. what i do is if i need more than i can haul in one or two loads i just get it delivered, unless it needs to be dumped in a couple different places like at some condos i do. its really not worthit for me to make 3-4+ trips to get materials.

I usually do the same as Clark, same as my supplier would charge. Never hauled anything that I didn't get paid to put down as well. If I were just hauling something, the charge would be more. Might consider a per mile kind of thing?

Ok well here is my situation. I got a bunch of calls early on about hauling stone and now I have almost 40 ton to haul. Most are small 2-3 ton jobs but I have a couple 10 ton jobs. Obviously this would be 5 + trips in my dump insert so I need to charge accordingly. My supplier can haul 8 ton in one load and charges a $80 hauling charge per load. With me hauling 2-3 ton I can not charge the same as him so I was thinking of breaking that down. I also have a couple large mulch hauls lined up with some local landscapers. I am in no way wanting back in the lawn side of things, but if I can keep my truck and helper busy all spring and summer im in,

You should try Uniontown Topsoil & Mulch. Last year it was 24/yd for black. The landscapers brown is chit but the dyed is great mulch.
