Todays job was all about getting rid of a very old shed and leveling out the site for the owner. The thing to keep in mind about these shed demolition jobs from an expense point of few is the tipping fees. Depending on what your load is made of (i.e. concrete, combined debris, green waste, dirty fill or clean fill) will determine how much per ton you'll have to include in your job budget. So I'm always quick to make the client aware of these additional costs they may not have thought of. And I always provide my best advice to keep costs down, whether that be using an alternative dumping site or using a bit of dirty fill to build the site level up.
Now the actual shed demolition took no time at all, however removing the debris and green waste was the time stealer here and required multiple trips. But if I can, I always aim to get a job complete in a day. I find that way it is much more convenient for the client not to have to move their lives around for a few days or schedule single days a part. I like to get in, play in the dirt for a few hours at top speed, and get out, leaving a fully satisfied client. Overall, this job took a full days work which included five green waste dump trips and one concrete dump trip.
I’m all about efficiency and perfection when I operate my Bobcat, Excavator or Tipper. When I quote a job for a potential client, I also provide my expert advice on how they should get the job done and ensure any other materials that are needed are on site and ready to go to. This avoids wasting unnecessary time and money for us all.
