Depends on your area and mileage to nearest suitable topsoil source of course, but I would expect about $250-350 for the delivered load of material, and the spreading could run from about $0-500 depending on whether the contractor uses careful tailgate spreading (direct out of the truck with narrow opening on the tailgate to spread the dirt as it comes out, which requires that it be fairly dry topsoil) or a bobcat - and of course on whether the truck can get right to where it is needed or not, and on whether it can drive to where you need it without causing unacceptable damage to the ground or lawn or such.

For just tailgate spreading (if the truck can get to where you need it) just the trucking and topsoil cost above (Muylch and Topsoil is your Search the List category) if you can rake it out from there (though be sure he knows you intend tailgate spreading and that he needs to bring material suitable for that), otherwise you need a Landscaping category company for this job.
