Shed demo price?

Got a call from my cousin, his uncle want to have this shed torn down and hauled off. He wants to keep the concrete slab. Its 18' x 20'. Im thinking it would be easy to just have a 30yd dumpster delivered instead of hauling with my dump trailer. Here is a pic.

I don't see needing that many yards unless its full of junk. Run one load of scrap metal in the trailer. Then use the skid and rip the rest down. I bet you could get it in 1 load. I've put a 1 car garage in a 10 yarder and that was with siding and roofing
2 men plus or minus you
Daily rate for skid and or mini ex
2 dump runs
Total price. Should be done around lunch depending on dump distance

I agree with alldayrj you can scrap alot of it. And your trailer should hold it all thats not thatbig. And depending on how its built you could take the wall and lift them into trailer or dumpster to save space and make less of a mess. Or could you burn on site?

with an excavator you can make it fit in one container because you can crunch the material up quite a bit, if you are going to use your skid steer i would price for 2 to be safe . When you are first learning demo it can be a good idea to have the customer pay for disposal and you charge him for machines and labour.This way you wont loose money , and you can learn on there dime how to estimate for disposals.

Well this job is back on track, going look at it 2morrow after my rail road meeting. Thinking of renting a bobcat E50 w/ thumb and have the owner order a 40yd container. Ill stack the sheetmetal on my deckover and haul it back home with me.
Here is the new E50 my buddy added to his rental fleet. He also got a E35.

keep the steel/metal scrap and sell for scrap IMO

There's no reason you shouldn't be able to fit that thing in a 40 yarder unless its full of crap. IMO

Would add an allowance for a second smaller dumpster if needed so he is aware of your concern. If not then on the final bill just cross it off if you didn't end up needing it.

Dumpsters are pretty cheap up here so we always add an extra or two in case depending on the job.

Also depending on the company you use they either won't care if you overload them, we used a different company on a house demo and they bitched even if they were over just a tiny bit. Other company we use now (and only them) get it done lol, they picked up a 40 yarder with a triaxle and the front axle came off the ground as he left shifting through 1st and 2nd and 3rd. Guy didn't really care though so it was awesome!

That E50 looks nice!
