Debris

This subject is a sort one for me. Most companies cap the CY debris amount. Example: a property I just looked at has approximately 30 CY of debris. I'm capped at $22.00 a yard. I can't haul it off for that or even rent a dumster. What's does everyone else do when this situation arises.

If a company is dictating that you complete a job for less money than you need to turn a profit, I would say that particular company would not be a good one to partner with.

Sounds like you have a couple of options here:

1. Submit an overallowable estimate to remove/dispose of the debris
2. Walk away and save some money!

Iíve already told you more than I know.

This one is simple. Don't work for a company if you can't make a profit.

Just had some good ol boy contractors underbid me to remove exterior debris only from a run down piece of property. Went over a few days later to complete a winterization and they had taken all of the debris from the yard and shoved it into the garage.
Maybe I should have worded my bid to say "relocate" instead of "remove" the debris.

Run away

I work in ny and a 20 yard dumpster is $600 alone when I try to explain this to these companies they respond by saying we did studies in Florida and this is the formula that we came up with that's fair across the
I explain the cost of doing business in Florida is much lower but they just don't get it

Are you pairing the debris with other services to be provided at the property? If so, bid higher on the other items and inflate your CYD count slightly to make some profit. Just keep in mind that all your other items need to be approved to make the job a winner. If they try to beat you down on your pricing, then just walk. $22 a yard is not very good. But "you" can find ways to make it pay if you are creative and know how make reps do what you want by how you talk to them.
