Default Garage removed or Demolition question

I'm building a new garage in a few weeks. Has anyone used a demolition crew or hauling company? If so, anyone you know in southeast Michigan? Garage size is 20' wide x 33' long with 84" ceilings

Put it on craigslist for free.


Or just post a 'garage sale' sign on your front lawn.

I had a guy come out and quote the demolition and he wants $4000 to knock it down and haul it away. I have so much stuff sitting at the curb now. Co-ops are such cheap labor and they work for food.

Tempting also but I heard if it were to catch fire accidentally I would have to replace the concrete.

I did this year before last, I did it in two days with just me and my 65 year old dad.
We only used a sawz all, sledge and a Jeep. We just cut the roof every 2 trusses, wrapped the winch cable around the section and imploded it into the center of the garage. Then just threw the pieces in the bin, the walls we just sledged down.
Cheapest quote I got was 5 grand to knock down my garage and cart it away. It cost me 2 days and $400 in disposal fees.

Do you happen to be insured and incorporated for any reason? Call labor ready, it's like legalized slavery.

A guy over the phone quoted $1250 cash and i get a 40yd dumpster and he'll do it in one day. That seems more reasonable. I should just have a party and buy Bad Brad's after.
