Do you guys not use big rolls? We lay 40 yard rolls and then order a couple pallets to fill in the bare spots with.

Not really in Florida. Seen them a few times on highway projects. 99% of the time its 16" x 24" pieces. Would definately be overkill in the residential setting as most lot sizes are around 10k.

The most common sods here are SA and Bahaia varieties. In those sizes they would weigh over 50lbs a piece.

I'll chime in here. That is 80 pallets and 5 semi loads.
Truckers give a certain amount of time to unload. After that they charge by the hour for sitting there.
I have a Bobcat and can unload it for you its, $350 the first hour and each hour after that is 150 per hour.

You might be a tad high on your price. I believe people can rent a Skid Steer all day for less than you charge.

Yep, little high it is $150 per day w/trailer. At-least in our part of the woods.
What kills me is a sod cutter is $105 per day! Probably will pay for it's self if I just break down and buy one. Wish I could find a good use one at a fair price!

That's why I bought my BG sodcutter last year. No more rental fees and aggravation. No more rental equipment falling apart in the middle of a job. No more GD Ryan sodcutters. Forget about finding a clean used one, they are almost always hashed out.
