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.

:eek: That sentence right there makes me glad I don't plow snow.
I'll plow over mowing any day. That said i have the proper equipment. Vee plow on my truck, ATV with plow, Multiple walk behind blowers and a 30HP utility tractor with a loader and a 60" PTO powered blower. Unfortunately i am 20K behind on snow removal this winter due to lack of snow!!!

Depending on who the National is, you could just deny it and either "all their other vendors" will jump on it, or they will call you back.
They counter with $325.
You counter with $700.
They counter with $330.
You counter with $725.
They say final offer is $330.
You agree that final offer is $750.
