    the other day i went to a guy who my dad knows and he had me and my guy load up cut sod and dirt into my truck it took 2 trips to the place where i dump. Took us 3.5 hours to do the job and we drove 30 miles. Do any of you guys have a set hourly rate for trucking material and dumping it?

    $210.00 covers your time...throw in the driving/gas and I would say you did OK.

    Yes. Do you?
    You need to set a price BEFORE you do the job.
    You'll be lucky to get $40 bucks.
