whats a good price on trenching for a main line about 18" deep clean material
$10 per hour
wow...i give you that and free lunch
You have the best price out there
i forgot and i will fly you out here too!
In all seriousness pricing isn't discussed much here, learned that lesson early on.
What flies in one region won't in other regions.
If you are capable of performing a job you should have a pretty good handle on everything, including your pricing.
Best of luck, i'm sure you will well.

what Jim said.
I'll add that there are way to many variables to give even a ball park price. I go on some properties that can be trenched or pulled no problem, then you go two lots down the street and the ground is filled with 12" rocks and the only option is to hand dig.
ya your right!
Triple ditto, there is no way to price a site without being familiar with the area. Even then, you could get stuck in some sort of early "backfill" with boulders and other crap, which I've been into, and had to call for a backloader and dump truck to remove. Explaining that to the client ,and why the price is going up, and getting paid for the "extras" is what real contractors are made of.
What are you thinking when you ask that kind of question?
I wouldn't even think of quoting a price until I see or know how underground utilities are run, how long, size and type of pipe, ground conditions, established lawn or dirt, customer background check, value of property, etc.
