I had a day care called and asked about a quote for a play ground to be mulch 5700 sf, six inches thick. She asked me to give her an estimate, of how mulch material will cost and how many men I'll have onsite, just a break down of the cost. Option #1 I have a company here said they would blow it in for 22.50 installed. 105 yds total=$2310. To make money on this I would have to mark it up to about $30.00 a yd. Option #2 Delivered and dumped $12.00 per yard plus $70.00 delivery charge=total $1470. Then got to figure to purchase of a couple wheel barrels and hiring on 3 day workers @ $8.00 an hour. I've never installed anywhere near 100 yds? The day care center has to have this mulch installed, I think it's a state requirement. The mulch company is about 2 weeks behind. In this situation what would you guy's do? I'm thinking if I sub it out and tell her I'm going to have the mulch blown in, why would she want to use me, why not get the phone book and call around? Would like a few suggestions on this one.
