Hello all, I have a belt trailer and have been asked to give my trucking rates for potato harvest. I have never hauled potatoes, so I was wondering if anybody here on this forum could give me advice on how to charge, i.e by the ton, by the hour, by the mile. Any input is appreciated, thanks!

When i did it a few years ago i got 7.50 per 100. That may not help but that's the idea

I used a Wilson ultralight 102x78x43 hopper trailer for potatoes. But you need to watch how you load them. Don't just put the belt over the center of the hopper, you'll get severe damage. Start at the tip of the slide until it starts to build up.

At Tappen nd the offer was 1.69 cwt plus fsc

that was 22 cents per mile the loads were to simply in grand forks or cavindish in jamestown.

sometimes 2 hr wait to unload because they are from all over Minnesota and nd.

Only do this by the hour if you are dedicating your truck to them for continuous use.
