    You’re renting a D8 and they won’t bring it?

    It’s going to vary greatly by region and business.

    Well, like Cattleman mentioned I would think it’d be figured into the cost of renting it.

    Could tell you how much to take it a 1000 miles easier than 100.

    I would be a day rate kinda guy so 15 or 100 miles would be about the same.

    You don’t really do local work but I would expect to pay at least $175-200 an hour. But that Is just a guess.... and most of the complete D8’s are going to go like 85k and be over 12 wide so they may require a pilot car depending on delivery route

    My company would be in the $1000 to $ 2000 range for your 15-100 mile move just guessing of course assuming there are no outrageous routes and anything else out of the ordinary. Like Rontonio stated this type of move would be looked at as a day rate vs a mileage rate. For example the other day we moved a 400 class excavator 3 miles it was $1500

    We rent a lot of equipment. The dealer that we rent from subsidizes the haul and can usually haul it to a job and back to the dealership for less than commercial rates. We haul most of the rented equipment ourselves, mainly for scheduling convenience and moving equipment from one job to another, but don't save much on the haul itself relative to the cost of owning our own transport.

    Having said that, a rate of $200 per hour for the transport would be very reasonable. I would expect to pay at least $1000 for delivery and another $1000 for return if no pilot cars are required if the dealer subsidizes the hauling to get/keep business. $1500 to $2000 each way would be what I would expect to pay an outside trucking company.

    In our state we are able to obtain an annual permit ($128 I think), and then pay a mileage rate for each move depending on axles/weight, which ranges from $.04/mile to $.88/mile depending. Suffice it to say that permits for that 100 mile trip will likely beat at least $100 in most states without adding pilot car rates, and I do not know what pilot cars charge.

    Given all of that and that a newer D8 will rent for around 18K per month (176 hours), 6K per week (44 hours), or 2K per day (10 hours), and considering the productivity of having an experienced operator, it is often far less expensive to hire a good contractor to do the work. Full disclosure here; I am a contractor and may be a touch biased in my opinion!

    I'm in Canada, so different from the USA of course. My minimum fee for low bedding is $600, that would be if you were located 200 feet away and wanted it moved 200 feet on a good road. I charge the time to hook up in my yard, drive to the equipment, load and chain it down, haul it, unload and drive back to my house, $600 min or $350 per hour, plus permits. If the truck can't make it home on the same day it leaves due to driver out of hours, you will be charged an extra $600 for overnight fee.
