Had a 4150 sq foot sod install going on today that by the time I figured what my cost would be, I figured it would be cheaper to sub out to one of my sod suppliers based on the cost he was giving me for install and removal and sod this time of year ($0.63 a sq). I am walking away with 5 beans today for doing nothing but making a phone call and running a wheel to measure, good deal right? Well it gets better. I go to the property today as the guys crew is doing the removal and I want to ensure the quality is what I expected and things were going as planned and to follow up on a measuring question. I meet the removal crew, they are doing a great job. I talk to the boss/owner about using him directly, turns out he is close to my location. He tells me in our area (several cities) he will do the same quality work (again which is very good) for $0.15 a square for removal and installation and I just purchase the sod like I normally would. This is huge for me as I was paying close to that for just removal alone, no sod installation. You guys running into people like this with the economy?
