A lil bit of everything at one job!

We looked at job today. Woman wants to clear this lot of everything , so she can start fresh and have a new house built by Christmas. She gave a vague description over the phone. Story behind is this is the property she grew up on. Original house was torn down 15 years ago. Nobody has been in the shed for over 20yrs. Wants all the concrete from the house slab, the shed sits on a slab, shed demolished, all trees removed and the grass bushhogged.

Hope i price this one right. Pretty good amount of concrete. One part of the main house slab is 10" + thick. Most of it is 4". Plan to recycle all the tin off the shed.
Few pics for yalls enjoyment.

If you have this option in your area you've probably already thought of this. Through a local dumpster co we've used, we could get a dumpster only for concrete at a greatly reduced rate ( like just charged for the pull and not the dump) if we ONLY put concrete in it. I guess they had a deal worked with a local concrete plant who recycled it and didn't have to pay like you would at a dump. Worked really well. And saved a lot of hauling labor for us.

That would be hard to price. Never really know what you are getting into.

I say quote everything but the concrete and give a per bin price on that. Swag the amount of concrete and tell her it's hard telling how much there is of something when most of it could be buried.

She decided to leave the concrete. I quoted her at $3500 to demo the shed and clear/bush hog the lot.

sounds a little cheap, for where i am, but you will probably get the job at 3500 and make some decent money doing it too. good luck take lots of pics!
