LOL been there done that last week.

12 feet wide by 24 feet long above ground pool.Told me bid approval was for $400.00 and I said not by me.

I think HUD pays more than that but not sure I have been getting between $600.00 and $800.00 and still not worth the time and hassle

Amen brothers! No way would I even think about it those prices. Price of dirt and the delivery surcharges anymore are more the $300 alone.

Good luck

We did one a couple winters ago. Still was maybe 6" of water or better in the bottom of the above ground pool, they insisted on removal. Can't remember how much I got approval for. I never thought I'd have to purchase pick axe's for my guys, and it was the first and last time we've ever used them.
