Frequently asked questions
How much do you charge for a job?
Our prices are based on the size pump or conveyor used, the amount of material placed, and travel time. We have a 3 hour minimum charged (travel not included), and travel is charged one way from our closest shop. Day rates are also available, and we provide free estimates/no charge pre-job inspections.
Where are you located?
We have trucks in Evansville, Monroe and LaCrosse Wisconsin
How far in advance do I need to schedule a pump or conveyor?
the more notice you can provide the better we can work with your schedule and get you in whenever you need. However we understand the nature of the business and the endless number of variables that effect each job. Usually a 1-2 day lead time will allow us to get you what you need when you need it. But emergencies happen and we will do our best to fit you in whenever you need a pump or conveyor.
How far do your pumps/conveyors reach?
Our pumps range from a 36 meter (95' horizontal reach) to a 46 meter (129' horizontal reach). Conveyors range from a 100 telebelt (105' horizontal reach) to a 130 telebelt (129' horizontal reach).
Can you pump over powerlines?
NO! We take safety very seriously and will not pump over powerlines, and must maintain at least 20' of clearance around overhead lines. However we can go underneath lines with our conveyors. If you have any questions about a jobsite, please call and we will be happy to do a free pre-job inspection.
How much extra material do I need to order when using a pump?
Pumps require an extra yard of material to prime.
