    Well your first problem is you are hauling it off? Why not dumpster??? By the time you factor in dumb fees,gas wear and tear on vehicle,trailer is a $400 dumpster not worth it? Im looking at a job and fiquring in paying 2 guys and me cutting if I haul off it would cost more to pay them to ride,put on and take off the trailer, and gas its a nobrainer

    Whatever you charge, better to be high $ than to low. If I could back trailer up to it, I'd charge a lower price. If you have to carry it out, then charge more.
