This is kind of a continuation of DFW's "I figured it out." When excavating for a hardscape project, in the past, I hauled everything myself. While attending an industry event, an instructor mentioned to me that he used containers whenever he could. I hadn't even thought about it before speaking with him. Now, like the instructor, whenever I can get a container on a job, I do. This is assuming that there is a certain amount of debris to be removed. This works for me because I get a 20yd container for $350.00. I can get it with 24 hours notice and I can keep it for approx. two weeks. When I consider all of the costs involved for MY business to haul the debris, it just isn't worth hauling. Also, with the container, my costs for removing the soil from the site and disposing of it are known, before I start the job. There are no variables like the truck breaking down, driver doesn't show, etc. I make more money laying pavers and block than I do hauling debris. Anybody else use containers?
