Queensland prices

Recommended Posts

Evening fellas.

Can anyone give me a rough ballpark as to what prices in Queensland are like based on 2/3 man crew, truck and chipper?

A mate has just moved there and needs a number of fairly straightforward looking pine removals.

Just doesn't want to get rinsed on price.

I don't think UK rates would be comparable.

The average pay for personnel out there is about 25 to 35 dollars an hour depending on experience. I can't give you numbers on the rest but I can say they do charge a fair bit more than we do here. He should make sure he gets arborists and not tree loppers.

Thought UK prices might not be comparable.
£1775 - £2367 for a 4 man crew.

Yip, bloody expensive in oz. I worked for a place where I was on 30 dollars an hour starting rate, I regularly did a minimum of 12 hours a day everyday. We had three teams, put that in terms of just staff costs a week not including other overheads and it makes your eyes water. Everyday was a massive takedown, just one after another, the "fun" factor wore off real quick!
