Hey Florida 5 Star where are you located?
What type of materials will you be using or are you just digging the hole

Orlando area
It would just be providing the excavation and possibly some soil / erosion control around the bank. The property has a "wetlands" area that already has a water flow through the property the person wants to channel the water flow through the property and install a fountain in the pond. The Fountain would be installed only of the water flow through the pond is not sufficient for keeping the algae out

Rented Loader/backhoe (neff rentals gave me a good rate) and 2 employees
The owners still have to get planning permission from SFWMD but that is their ball of wax

with a good loader you should be able to finish it in a day so just figure cost of loader and gas 2 employee's and lunch then add your salary i would suggest at least $200 so your totall should come in around $750

$750 I would not touch that for under $1500 labor and that is cheap

Well where i live people would rather digit themselves than pay $1500
But I do Agree $1500 is a good price if they pay it

But why under cut yourself you charge $750 for the job I can't see how you would make enough to cover cost

Just like Tractor said the people in this part of florida would rather just rent the equipment and attempt to do it them selves
I will give them a price of $1,000 and see how it goes
Will let you know how it ends up
