    I have a contractor friend of mine here in central NJ that wants to hire my mason dump and my driver to haul away some dirt from a new foundation he is digging.
    I have a place to dump it for free.
    Whats the going rate here for that?

    50 an hour. charge from the time you put the keys in the truck until you park it.

    i would charge 50 per hour and make sure they dont overload you and the guy loading you isnt breaking sideboards etc.i would also try to get them for travel time at the end of day .remember united rental is gonna charge 350 per day for a truck with no driver so be firm on your price and good luck.

    It says mason dump in his ?.Triaxles are getting $65-70 an hr so $50-55 for a 3yrd mason dump is good money

    I consider $50/hr a mininum. If the guy could use a tri-axle in his situation then it would be msot cost efficient. There are a lot of times where those big trucks will not work. Those times are the only times a small truck "for-hire" if prudent.

    dont break your truck....some of those guys in the loaders are crazy :dizzy:

    this one topsoil place you ask for 2 yards and you get a full 5 yard bucket dropped on your truck.

    not good for it especially with topsoil/heavy fill :nono:
