    I have a gas station that requires snow removal OFFSITE. I have 2 dump trucks and may require 4 trips roughly 15km away to dump the snow. ANY ideas on what that may cost. In 5 years, this is a first for me. i normally just place it elsewhere on the property but this one place is firm on REMOVAL.

    i usually go straight t&m (hourly rates) and charge them for both trucks, full time for loader, mobilization for the loader and a private dump site fee.

    its a gas station so they probably want it off site so you have to deal with the gas/oil/antifreeze and whatever else is in the snow. i wouldnt be surprised if there is some form of hazardous material procedure you have to follow.

    I was going with the flat hourly rate of $120 for the bobcat and $85 per for the trucks and $145 per dump.............. hope this sounds about right.

    I read somewhere on here the going rate for a dump fee was about 100/load around T.O.
    As far as environmental procedure there is more crap along side the highways than in
    a gas station parking lot. It all goes down a catch basin or ditch eventually.
