    How much do you charge to haul snow off a propertie. Never done it before do you go by hourly rate or a flat rate? Please let me know.

    Well U have not what size dump truck U are talking, That area should around 65 to 75 dollars an hour for a 5 yd dump more if bigger, bid by the hour so U know where U are at, U do not have the exp to bid a flat rate, unless U want to take that chance, learn it first then bid a flat rate, don't get rich by the hour but at least U know U are making some and U can learn, best of luck

    Always by the hour. You would have to be darn good at looking at a pile and determining how many loads, and how much time it's gonna take. Specially if you have to wait at the dump site.

    Also if the pile is frozen = extra time, harder on the equipment

    by the hour for sure
