How is Excavation Service Cost Calculated?

Prices fluctuate depending on where you live, but the cost of an excavation project is generally determined by the number of cubic yards of dirt a contractor will need to move. The rate will vary depending on factors like the type of terrain being excavated and the particular contractor, but pricing is typically set based on the costs of labor and machine operation.

On average, the price of a small machine and operator is $125 per hour, while a midsize machine and operator will cost around $200 hourly. Trucking in the necessary equipment costs an average of $90 per hour, and labor averages $55 per hour.
