    Ok heres a good question. How much should I charge to put down 40yds of shredded top soil at 2in depth for turf? I will be using a mini skid loader for $140 a day and charging the customer $60 per man hour. The top soil will cost $760 and delivery will be $80 after I marked it up. I guess the real question is how many hours will it take? Any help will help! Thanks in advance!

    IMO....you should charge 1 day (8 hrs) + all cost with your markup. By the time you get loader and carry it back you will have used a whole day.

    Loader 140.00
    Labor 480.00
    Delivery loader 75.00
    Shredded :)confused:) top soil 760.00
    Mark up $100.00
    Fuel 20.00

    total 1575.00 + tax on material.
