bush removal price help, picture

Give me a guesstimate what you would charge to remove these 7 bushes, i can not take and peice of eqiupment in to the grass that may leave marks, so no truck, no skidsteer. There is 7 of them with a max trunk width of about 3 inches, he doesn't want the stumps ground but wants them taken down as flat as possible, and dispose of everything. Im doing some price checking this year. Name:  BUSHES.jpg

Seems pretty easy with leaving the stumps there. Personally I'd recommend pulling them because it's gonna be hard to plant anything else with the stumps and roots still there..but if all he wants is them cut down and hauled....if it's nearby and all I'd probably come in around $300 with hauling and disposal. Should all fit in my dump trailer in one load and only costs me $10 for disposal. I'd budget 4 hours including mob/demob from the shop.

You have to look at a couple of things:
1st will u pay to dump it or can u get rid of it for free.
2nd how long will it take to you by yourself or with a helper plus helpers cost
3rd how many trips? fuel cost to you?
4th will u need a chain for your saw/tool cost

just some guidelines so you get your price down hope that helps bud.

Around 300 is what i was thinking, getting rid of them isn't a problem i have a dump bed and around here i only pay 5.00 per load, its probably 2 loads. I was thinking chain from the drive+street, but my chain is only 25ft long so i would have to get another one, i dunno, i just don't want to have to do it by hand.... ugggg..... that big plate glass window behind them makes me nervous with that much chain. Thanks for the input.
