Good luck Arjay, hope you get a good price for each truck, prices quoted on here are close to the mark for different size trucks. If you know where the house will be built just throw some extra on that house plot and the extra weight of the soil will help compact the house plot more quickly instead of waiting a year. Once you decide to build the house that excess soil can be spread around to other areas to fill sections that may have settled.

Just throw a few extra trucks of soil on the land now for spreading in the future. No need to get it absolutely perfect now, give it at least one wet season to compact.

The cost of the soil depends on 2 main things that is how far it has to travel to your land .
Also the seller , some see farang and $$$$ come to mind .
I.E we built a house and right next door they were digging out a lake maybe 300 yards away we got this for 150 B load .
Right now we are prepping to build a house up north Uttaradit the soil we bought came from 5 K away and cost 550 B a load .
Tip when buying soil ask for top soil, if not somtimes you can end up with clay name in Thai (Din Neo)... this stuff is good for nothing.
It will not drain ,can't plant in it and slippy once it rains .
Hope this helps

Don't forget to count the number of truck loads onto your land by someone you trust

Easiest way to do that is buy a book of raffle tickets, then give one to each driver.

Or let them estimate the amount of trucks needed , set the height and do a fixed price , including levelling of course .
That's the way I like to do buisnes.
