    Who do I call for such an order? Depending what the customer goes with on my sod job I need anywere from at least 155yrds up to 500yrds of topsoil. I think a dump truck with 20yrd deliveries will be more expensive than a tractor trailer.............I don't know who to call though for such an order.......help?:hammerhead:

    In md, most tri-axles can haul as much as a tr. triler.. And most of them guys dont like hauling dirt in tr. trl. due to it being a pain to dump.

    local supplier is overstocked............told me at that quantity i can have it at $5 yrd + delivery

    JK Ent wanted $48 per yrd delivered and blown over 2 days.....that is crazy, I'll pay the lesser and use a Bobcat and spread it in one day

    Less work sure but you gotta have profit

    ive not delt with JK in a while, but i wasnt ever really happy with them. Try Angler (The old CC Johnson) their prices just went up though 24.50 per yard for screened top soil (picked up) and 11 an yard for "raw" topsoil (picked up). As far as i know springfield topsoil is $20 a yard (picked up though)
