That is nothing, I just had a regional we do some work for send us an "approval" that they said another contractor bid but can't complete. It was for 375 CYD of debris and the bid that was approved from the other contractor was for $3500.00. Of course they can't do it after they put in such a stupid bid. Lets do the math -
375 cyd = 30 yd dumpster = 12 bins.
12 dumpster x average of $650.00 = $7800.00.
Plus you have to figure at least 4 days for that much.
So some guy bids $3500.00 THEN realizes how much dumpsters cost.
Told them it would be around $15k and they almost choked.
