    Can anyone give me an idea how much I should expect to pay for delivery of a D8 bulldozer rental?

    Say the shipping distance from rental center to project site is 100 miles?

    How about for 15 miles? Is the price much different?

    Just want to get an idea so I don't get ripped off

    Every time I have rented heavy equipment the delivery was either free or already figured into the rental price. Once I got a discount cause I went and picked up the equipment with my bosses truck and trailer.

    Best bet is to contact a local grading company and ask them? They probably already have oversized permits and stuff?

    If you have to pay separately for the haul, don't be surprised to see $10/mile, plus all the permit fees.

    Any idea how much permit fees would cost? I guess at that mileage rate it really makes sense to work with the most local company

    They even figured in the cost of the pickup of the machinery after you were done with the job?

    Yeah... The most recent rental was a large excavator that broke down while I was using due to no fault of my own, and they brought out another and took the first away. All on thier dime.

    I should probably note though that I was always much closer than your 100 miles. And the company I rent from has their own trucks and trailers for delivery.

    If its just for a day likely better off paying contractor for delivery and include operator. I needed a big ho for a hour and "friendly contractor" stopped came by, did the work and few others locally the same day. It was only $300 I recall. He likely spent as much time unloading and loading the ho as he did digging my site.

    I would think that the added in delivery fee is going to come out to way more than $10 a mile...

    I hauled a legal steel load yesterday that went 110 miles and came to $8.17 a mile after my carriers cut...

    From what I see online a D8 is around #80000
