Hi everyone!  Looking to figure out what a reasonable price is for this....seems like the estimates are all over the place.

Why don't you figure the cost of materials in your local area and post that. Then we can figure and estimate without spending an hour or so computing.

I'm in New York if that helps?  But I'm not sure how to find out what the materials cost.

the obvious first step would be to call concrete suppliers and get their minimum delivery fees and per yard cost. And you need to then figure all the materials needed and then labor costs. Since that's not straightforward for you, and it seems you are trying to check whether an estimate you've been handed is in line with market prices, why not just get a few other quotes from reputable contractors and then figure out what looks typical and what's out of whack?

My DIY cost would be about $2600 .. 


4 days. - say $4000

Assuming no dump fees for the dirt asphalt   say $1300?

No idea what labor and truck rates are in your area.

I have my own trucks and backhoes/dozers.

So, guessing at $10k+ for somebody that has to pay out workers comp, taxes, permits, etc, etc.
