    This is my weekend project I just completed. It took me 2 1/2 hours to complete and cost me 120.00 dollars for materials. Can anyone of you guys or girls tell me how much you would charge for a project of this type? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    By the way the size is 3ft in the front, 4ft in the back and 2ft on the sides.

    $ 1000.00 including custom made mail box post in 6 feet of concrete. I have had to do a few of them because of hoodlums nocking them over.

    $120 in materials - 2.5 man hours = $325

    Hoodlums knocked over my mail box a few months ago so with the help of my mower I pulled up some huge rocks and used the mower to push them around the post. (they ran the mailbox/post over). Now it's still standing but others are having problems with the hoodlums running theirs over. I should bury a thin piece of wood filled with nails/screws for the neighbors.....LoL

    $1,000?!?!?!?!?!? That would take a total of 2 hrs for just 1 guy, I'd probably charge you around $325-350 as well...good job sir

    I can't see anyone charging over $400.


    How much rock is that? Maybe 1/2 ton?

    By the way, I think I live next door to you.

    My time to weld and fabricate the post is the kicker. And digging a six foot hole to put it in takes a little bit.
