trash out

when doing trash outs whats the best way to calculate how many cubic yards total of trash is in the house. The way i do it is use my trailer take pic then unload it and put in dumpster to wear i get the most of my money worth then i can pack the dumpster real good after i take my pic of it in the trailer, must be a easier way of doing it so im not doing the work twice

unless your using the trailer to transport the debris to a dumpster on site somewhere else you are wasting your time and money. Why not just load your trailer and then dump. Who says you can't load it more than once to show cubic yards.

I just walk through the house counting. Proving cy yds... well, from what I've seen it doesn't matter how much is exactly there. Everyone who looks at the pictures, no matter how you measure it, will come to their own numbers from you to the bank itself.

I'm getting pretty good at it too. Better than I thought I would.

Assuming you can look at clothes tossed around the room like a tornado came through and figure out how many 3x3's are there... I've worked for several regionals now and and they always toss in a good number at the end. I modestly add in that it's +-5 yds but I worked for 1 company (that I asked about here last summer) that looked at about 20 yds of crap and told the bank it was 100. I quit within 5 minutes of my first house because my work ethics and their work ethics were wildly different.

Counting/bidding debris in place is

the only acceptable way of getting a count, in my opinion. I'm not going to process debris just to get less money because I spent my labor to compact it. The one exception being bagged leaves or lawn debris. The only reason for a picture of loaded debris is verify you hauled it off site, not to get a count.

One would think truck load / trailer load pics would be just that, verification that you didn't just move the debris from one room to another for the photos. But I have on numerous occasions been forced to defend my cu.yd. billing due to the cube farm reviewer stating loaded debris photos do not justify invoice amount. P&P work seems to be a daily battle for being paid the justified amount for work completed.

3X3X3 or 27 cft you choose ! Belive me the cubicle chongos will let you know if you are over.Compressed or loose ? it is up to you to define how much money is to be made, I used to aLwAyS PUSH THE LIMITS. AND WAS NOT DENIED BUT 10% OF THE TIME. Sorry for the caps i am recovering from torn rotator cuff and bicep tear. So dont do them ANY favors and make some money ! Been there done that and GLAD it's in the rearview mirror !
