We're in Moncure, NC today tearing down what's left of two old buildings and moving the rubble across the property. We've got an excavator with Old Man Roy at the controls and a couple of Bobcats running debris. Demolition is one of those extra service you've got to get into - we'll bring in $10,000 - $12,000 profit on this job!

On this demolition project, Christian will show everybody what we’re going to be doing. You all come along.

We are on a 15-acre property right outside of Raleigh. As you can see behind me there, we got an old building that we’re actually removing. We’re not actually taking anything off site. We’re just moving it about 200 yards to another location on site. He’s knocking that building down. We’ve got a guy running a bobcat back and forth with the material. As we walk further down the property, you will be able to see what we’re going with it. A lot of brick there, there’s a lot of cinder blocks down that way. There’s another building that we’re going to be pushing into a creek bed. We are actually moving about three loads or so of general trash, there’s some tires out here, so we’re only taking about three to four truckloads worth of stuff. Otherwise, we’re just going to be moving material from one spot to another.

Our main cost in this job is the time for the equipment to be on site. The disposal isn’t a huge amount because we’re not disposing any concrete, brick, anything like. This job itself is a $28,000 job. We’re going to complete it in two weeks, a little bit less than two weeks, so it’s a big job. It’s a big hit. You guys need to be doing demolition if possible. Don’t be afraid of it. Don’t let it scare you off because it’s good money. You just got to use some common sense, and everybody can take care of demolition projects.

We’re coming up on this cinder block here. Both of these buildings are actually older than the civil war. They are pre-Civil War, so they’re pretty dilapidated. There’s a lot of overgrowth. With a project like this, you really need to know what type of machines you need to have on site, and that’s something here in Junk Removal Authority we can help you with. The only reason I know how to do this is from experience, otherwise if you get the wrong machine and you can’t do the job, you’re going to be out a bunch of money. Jobs like this you could make a bunch of money, but you can also lose a bunch of money, so you have to be careful with that. You got to get the job done as quickly as possible, because the longer the machines are on site, the more money it’s costing you. If you can knock it out in a week instead of two weeks, you’re going to save that extra money from that second week.

Over that way, we’re actually clearing a lot of the smaller trees that are over there. We’re going to have a machine with a forestry package. It’s going to have some teeth on the end of it that is going to cut up all the smaller trees – not the bigger stuff, but the smaller stuff to create more space and it won’t be so big so people can actually use it. That’s basically the gist of the project, the overall view of the project. If you have any questions with this type of work at all, you can reach us at 919-466-9322.

Behind me is this old bait and tackle shop, probably 30, or 40 years old, we’re going to be tearing this building down.

This is a 15-acre plot, she’s going to build her primary residence here, and she is going to do like four bed and breakfast little homes there.

All this stuff back here, the forestry package on the bobcat is going to clear a lot of this out in the small scale. We’re going to run through and hit different lanes. A lot of the trees that are smaller and about six inches in diameter are going to be gone. They’re going to be mulched up, so this lake can actually be usable. Right now, it’s not because you can’t walk through it. That’s going to take about a week, but it’s got to be done. It’s going to look good once it’s complete.

Lee: What are you doing man, taking a break?

Old Man Roy: No, I am not taking no break.

Lee: I don’t pay you to take a break, man.

Old Man Roy: I’m answering this damn phone. Quit calling it.

Old Man Roy: What the hell do you want, man? You got to get out the damn way so I can get something done here.

Old Man Roy: Hey man, you’re letting all the air out.

Lee: Everything going well?

Old Man Roy: Yeah, there’s a lot of trash. I think the others down there might be a little bit easier since it’s walls. Breaking now and that’s what’s sad. He doesn’t know how far back in here to go. I’ll still clean up here and all.

Lee: He probably need to look at it. He probably needs to look at the thing.

Old Man Roy: Anything that I row will probably end up there too.

Lee: I say none of this has to go anywhere. It’s being moved on the property.

He works hard, but he’s got a damn attitude problem, though.

We’ll be showing you stuff throughout the next couple weeks as we wrap this project up. We’ll show you the final product after all this has been smoothed over, after everything looks nice. This is a high-profit job, because we only have our three truckloads of debris going to the dump which is right down the road. 45 cubic yards is all we have of stuff. There’s maybe 10 tons worth of stuff. Disposal fee here is about $40 a ton, so I have about $400 in disposal for a $30,000 job. Man expenses, rental equipment, and then labor; that’s pretty much it. We’ll make a good $10,000 or $12,000 profit on this job. This kind of stuff right here a lot of you just turned away. This would actually be a good starter job if you could find somebody who knows how to run an excavator. Old Man Roy back there, he’s got an attitude and everything, but the guy is very good on the machine. He could run a machine, he could run the job site. He’s a great asset. He just recently retired. He does work for us a couple times a week whenever we have demolition jobs like this.

Get into demolition, ease your way. You can do as much research as you can. We’ll help you out. If you need us for informational demolition projects, give us a call. Other than that, it’s just a matter of getting out there and trying it out. You figure it out on your own.
