How much should I pay?!

Folks, question to those who are using help...

I plan on buying hay this or next week, and I'll ask the seller if he can "designate" couple mexican guys working for him from time to time to help me out. It's going to be 2 trips on my own truck, 1 mile down the road, 65 50 lbs square bales total to load, unload, and put into my little shed (I think probably will take hour - hour & half). I'll be helping out of course with load/unload and stacking.

So my question is how much should I pay them? I never had this experience before because we always did it ourselves, but unfortunately not this time as my "free" helper has been having medical condition for quite a while. :(

Kitten, does the seller have an option to deliver?

I got 100 bales delivered and stacked in my barn this weekend for $5.00 a bale.

If you don't have that option, ask the seller what his helpers get per hour. Even if it doesn't take an hour, pay them that amount.

Thank you, SR! Asking about hour pay is a very good idea!

He delivers only in summer straight from the field (160 bales in hay wagon). Since I can't get all needed hay in summer (too small sheds), I then do couple extra-buys (usually couple loads each) in fall and winter, and unfortunately those can't be delivered. He has very nice hay and good price though (and I buy other stuff from him like firewood and straw), so I just live with delivering myself. :)

Yep, most hay places won't deliver less than 100 bales. It's not worth their time, effort, and gas for less than that.

Since you have a lot of business dealings with this man, I don't see why he wouldn't lend you a couple of his guys to help with your hay, especially since you'll be paying them for their time.
