Typically hazardous materials are bid separate as everything else that is not considered reg debri and if you have to get any 3rd party estimates you negotiate that bid prior to doing it you will be reimbursed plus a trip charge, believe me i hate 3rd party bids more than anything but success comes at a price

If your getting 20-26 a cyd for debri removal and thats pretty much industry standard bid the stuff high and heres a secret for some odd reason you can take 5 timea the amount of photos of the debri amd to them through pics it works everytime they'll approve it and if your not working for a shady co. They will get your $ i've been doing this 15 years 7 with my own co. And average almost 200,000 a year for 7 straight years through a sub of a sub co. Not even a national

Ive got a 16'x 6" trailer with 4 ft sidewalls. Comes out to about 15 cyds. I'd like to see what you are trailing that holds 25!!

20x8x8 gooseneck dump trailer with a 2001 f450 16 ft flatbed gets the job done relatively easy listen i cam tell you been doing this a while but you still could learn things everyday as i am take the advice and run with it ive used an 87 chevy 3500 14 ft dump truck and actually still use it and do the same, i could do it with your trailer size also 3 more loads costing you only 150. More in landfill fees but still can be done IF YOUR WILLING

$16 to $20 cyd. The $75 is per ton. It does make money, but not like in the early days. I do have a client that pays $30 cyd, so those are pretty worthwhile. You can usually expect 15-20 cyds per ton (depending on what is being removed), so $300-$400 a load less the dump fee, labor, and materials (those bags ain't cheap!). A team of two guys under supervision (voice of experience) can usually load a 15-20 cyd trailer in about 3-4 hours. Establish early what the measurements of your trailer is and stick to them. I use a 7x12 trailer, but measures out to 7x12' 6". Obviously, I use the larger measurement. I hear some banks still pay up to $50 cyd, but I only got on one of those once or twice over the years. Gotta have those connections.

By the way, I do not usually move bricks that are whole. If they are a few broken, I will throw them on the trailer. Stacks of bricks and wet wood get a separate bid with an excess weight fee. I broke one trailer with bricks. Won't do it again. Usually load in the back of the truck.

Taking stuff to other places - donating clothes to Salvation Army (I need at least half dozen bags to make it worthwhile), recycling, and such are all part of the hustle for the small guy. Maybe it is all just one giant hustle.

You need to pass the background check at least. The rest is open to interpretation ....

Yea I was thinking about renting a box truck even if I didn’t profit that much in the beginning, just to build my clientele. Then once I had a steady flow of work I’d buy a box truck.. I think the biggest ones are 26’ ??? My thought is that would lessen the amount of trips I had to take and maximize space for hauling.

Between the 16ft stakebody and that it holds more than 47 cyds but thats what im using and i only bring it for jobs that are 100 cyds or more you really only need a 14 or 16 ft dump truck with at least 6ft sides you can measure and do the numbers all you want but if you know what your doing you'll be able to show 25cyds even on your 16 ft trailer, my advice to you is raise your sides a couple feet easy fabrication very little expense involved i know for a fact you can do it with that trailer and if not than maybe your doing something wrong maybe its your pics or just the company's uour dealing with
