Thanks all for your useful comments
Couple things...we live in the county, so we do get to hoard wood and yard debris for burning, the dump is less than 6 miles from the site, so no roll offs this go around, we will be just using our trailer. Expect $600-800 in dump fees, 2 guys labor for 3 days. Ohio is a difficult state, foreclosures in our area are still over 20%, so there is a lot of work, however there are a lot of low ball hacks that hire out craigslist crews for pennies on the dollar. I know of one guy who pays his men $20.00 a day. Also, in the last month we have had to compete with bidders from MI, KY, IN and PA. A crew from MI recently came to Dayton to do an initial, put the winterization posting in the window, but did not winterize at all. Some not all brokers around here have there own crews and will throw at low bids and only accept high bids so they can low ball and get the bid for their own crew. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it. Again I appreciate everyone's input.
