Quantity - List the most dirt fill you think you can take. Some people start out listing 100 cubic yards (cy), then try to get another 100 cy after that and maybe do that a few times totaling 300 cy. If a contractor has 300 cy, they will most likely want to find a site that can take all of it. So the person listing only 100 cy might have missed several hauls of larger quantities. The same principle applies whether you want 30 cy or 3000 cy. The more you list, the more possibilities you have to match.
Flexibility – The more kinds of fill dirt you can take the more possibilities there are. "Clean Fill" and "Rough Fill" are by far the most common types available. If you think you only want topsoil, read "Why is fill better than topsoil in some cases?"
Price – Contractors incur a lot of expense in loading and hauling dirt fill. If you express a willingness to pay something, even if it is a small amount, a contractor is more likely to call you compared to another looking for free material. Just select “paying” or “negotiable” in the pricing category.
Search – Contractors can do a search to see who has excess dirt in the area. Another contractor may have dirt listed that they don’t need to move right now and are not calling you or anyone else. If contractors get proactive and call other contractors, they may be willing to work out a deal with you.
