    I placed a bid for this guy, he told me that don't send me a bid just get the job done. I called two days later with the price he asks "when can you start?". Tell him next week, he says fine. Get a message later saying he wanted to cancel.....he found someone else. I didn't think my price was too high. Here's what the job consists of:

    1272sq ft @ 3" crushed asphalt removal ($45/ton)

    12yds of 5/8 chipped rock brought in to replace.

    3 men on site. Next to his garage. Some what of an RV Paking area. I don't have a tractor or skid steer.so this might be where my pricing might of been a little high to him.

    I know that all places are different but, alot of places are pretty close to being the same. Just based off those figures let me hear what you would bid this at. Hope it's enough information.
