    Everyone is always asking how much to charge per yard. I wanna know what dollar amount of your price per yard is profit. Example 1yd cost 20.00 and cost of travel and labor is 20 total overhead per yard is 40.00 you charge 65 so your profit in dollar amount is 25 per yard. These numbers are obviously made up but this to explain profit or net not gross but net per yard. What do you got guys?

    We get between $70 and $80 depending on how many CY & which product the customer wants. Don't like to install less than a 4 CY job either.

    not what you charge but what is the amount in dollars of profit of your per yard price. Heck we stop at 60 and goes up from there! Out of your per yard price how much is profit?
