FAS coordinator is a magician....

She can make 36 cubic yds disappear in a single sentence

We are looking at 156 cyd of debris.
interior debris-35 cyd
exterior debris-34 cyd
Railing from rear deck-8 cyd
81 cement blocks/35 bricks-30 cyd
Weights-1 cyd
Outbuilding #1- 12x16 contains 14 cyd debris
Outbuilding #2- 16x20 contains 34 cyd debris


Precount: 120 cyds: includes everything

We would have to turn it down at 120 cyd approved anyway.
I went photo by photo again and there is 34 inside house, 27 in cement blocks, 2 in bricks, 6 in deck railing that has fallen off, 14 in one building, 34 in the other.
That is 117.
All the miscellaneous in yard is going to add way more than 3 cyd.


Iím sorry, I donít completely understand.

120 CYD is only about 20 CYD off from your could of 150. (huh?? new math??)

You would be getting an additional 1,620 on top of the 375.


120 cyd is 36 cyd off from my count of 156 which I am certain of.
Thatís 648.00.
We would be getting an additional 1620, when we should be getting an additional 2268.00.
Accepting the job means I remove and pay labor and dump rates for the full 156 cubic yards, but only get paid for 120.00.
If we remove 156 cubic yards, we get paid for 156 cubic yards.


Please upload additional photos so we can get a 2nd count and see if we could get any closer to your number.

I have gone through photosÖAs stated earlier 117 inside house and buildings without counting yard.
Going through yard photos, there is easily 40 in the yard.
I am being conservative when counting. I see no way someone looked at the same photos I did and came up with 120 cyd total.
I will get photos again tomorrow, but not sure how that helps.
If anything I am low on the 156 and cannot do it for less.

Barefoot - hold to your numbers. No sense in doing a work order that results in a loss. What could be even worse if they talk you into 120 CYD and 60 days later the invoice gets adjusted down even further because "photos don't justify". Screwing with yardages is in the top 3 biggest pet peeves i have with this biz........

It may if they won't budge off the 120 CYD. Then just walk away and tell them to reassign because you're not completing work that isn't your bid.

i pay around $400 for a 40cyrd roll off, so at 156 yards you may have $1600 just in dumpsters?? and i never count large amounts of block or stone as debris i bid those seperate due to weight.

We also bid blocks as 3 blocks=1 cyd.
There is also the hazard fees which, for once, they aren't even arguing.
