MOBILE SAWMILL RATES
Mobile rates tyipcally run at $800 for a full day and $600 for a half day. This normally eqautes to around 50 cent's a board foot. On most mobile jobs we cut 1600+ a day.
Since each job is different, we like to visit each site prior to mobilization to determine the best set up area with you. We can also make arrangements for dealing with the cut lumber as well as the slabs (waste). After seeing the logs and the site we can give you an estimated quantity and can quote a firm price to you for the specific size lumber you desire.
We can also compliment the sawmill with skid steer services for projects that require logs/slabs to be moved.
The prices above are general. Rates may be less if the timber is straight, soft and cut "dimensionally". Rates may be more if the timber is crooked, hard and "quarter sawn". Mobilization rates also vary according to each location. Whatever your requirements may be, we strive to accommodate your requests.
Please feel free to contact if you have questions.
NEED LOGS MOVED?!?
We're always happy to help handle some of the logistical issues when it comes to transporting logs. Sometimes it's not possible to saw on location, if this is the case we're glad to pick up your logs and saw at our home base location in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
