My thoughts are it's your company why do you let someone else tell you what to charge?

Well, Bunker sold out to Chronos, so now the rates drop to the new owners' level. If it's too low, bid. No way I'd do debris for $25/cyd., but that's just me. Diversify, diversify, diversify.

That is exactly what some of these members don't understand. For many of these so called contractors they would go broke slower at home on their couch. Instead they choose to go broke out in the field working for someone else.

When I started this business in 2007 I completed a couple of trashouts for Sentinel FS for $20/CY. I realized that it wouldn't take long to go broke at those prices so I notified them that I would need to raise my prices. We negotiated back & forth and eventually agreed on a new pricing structure that worked for both of us for the next couple of years.

Today my pricing is nearly 30% higher than it was in 2009. I have no plans to lower my prices at this point - Existing work is steady & new clients seem to have no problems coming on board.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Same. If your work is good, clients stay. When we were doing preservation work, we had 2 rules on pricing- 1.) never sign a contract or even an application without knowing what the pricing is, and 2.) your pricing is NOT my pricing. I can count on one hand the number of jobs we took at published rates. Never let someone else determine what your rates are.

Other than the volume statement in this Spectrum notification...straight up lie.
How long will the Emplactors continue down the dead end road????
How can anyone accept this bullcrap when the pricing for dumping at the dump is more than $25 per yard...
I did not understand that logic it is ignorant.
All over Nevada & California it is posted at the dump entrance $25.75 per cubic yard.
Sorry but if you accept the pricing you're stupid. You really should not have a business license you should be punching a time clock every day...
But Ya'll already know that....
Then again. ...that's none of my business....



As you know, our industry is facing some significant compression in both volume and price reductions from clients. As you are aware from previous communications, we have made some important changes at Spectrum which we believe will enhance our ability to better compete for new business. We particularly want to position ourselves to add more high volume inspection clients. In order for Spectrum Solutions Acquisitions (SSA) to be competitive in the high-volume marketplace, it follows that we must make some pricing adjustments within our Vendor Network as well.

It's different prices at different dumps. In Charleston, SC for example it's $55/ton. But in Collenton County, SC the landfill is $17.50/ton. They are a 1 hour drive from each other. Or, if you do not have more than 8 cubic yards, the transfer station accept it for free...they do not even check your ID to see if you live in that town.

This is a prime example of what's with the industry...
You just justified the order milks telling youbwhat they will pay you...
What is wrong with everyone....
Just keep allowing the order mills to steal from you and dictate to you...
If you punch a time clock at least you'd be able to get medical insurance..
