Got a 5th wheel to move tomorrow


Recommended Posts

Got a message over the weekend asking what I would charge to move a 5th wheel for someone ( I do advertise this) 

 

I put a cost in that I thought the guy would say no to..... really busy and lots on so wasn't too bothered really..... guy snaps my arm off

 

It has been used while a house build was done down in the south west, I've got to move it to a film set on a racecourse 325 miles away, hopefully I won't regret this :lmao:

You would have to look at cost of fuel, MPGs you'll have under load, and total miles, then what you time is worth. For me I'm currently starting out at $3.00 a mile. 

I'm at £1.50 per mile rounded up to £500  I figure £200  minus the VAT @20% which I get back for fuel so that's £160, £340 for the day, I'll take that

Well got down to a tiny little village near Evesham yesterday at 10.30am, trailer parked on a nice hard standing but way too low for my truck to get under, trailer batteries flat as blocks of wood luckily the guy had a telehandler so he lifted it onto my 5th wheel

 

Electrical plug was the same as my truck so no messing about with any of that, all lights and brakes working.

 

Had maybe 20 miles of tiny lanes to do before getting onto the A46 which is a decent road then M69 and M1 North finally the A1 to Wetherby racecourse where the buyer is on a film set, he's actually rented it out for 5 weeks accommodation for film people.

Towed nice and is a fair bit lighter than mine

Glad to hear the move went well.  Easy money.

Yes all in all a good day.... guy told me I was the cheapest

 

Used £180 in diesel so I'm more than happy

Probably going to get a call to move it back....👍👍👍

Maybe.... he's already messaged me asking if he can hook up a 24v tow vehicle ... as in HGV    I told him no unless you can drop the voltage to 12v but seeing as the tractor unit would weigh around twice the trailer I doubt he needs the brakes working, just a 24v trailer lightboard would be fine
