What size - load - dumptrucks (aside from dumper pickups which carry a yard to so only) commonly run from about 8cy to 24cy capacityi depending on configuration and size - so hopefully you have an actual number of cubic yards in mind.

Depending on your locale and how long a haul it is to your place, a typical 10-14cy dump truck of common (non-structural) fill might run from about $150-250 delivered, whereas a structural graded crushed stone fill might run more like $250-400.


For just deliver and dump, or for dump and rough spreading (additional $200-400 probably for 4 loads worth) an Excavation contractor is probably your best bet.


If the truck cannot get to where you need the fill, or you need it spread and compacted, again an Excavation contractor if just to build a pad - or some driveway contractors who want to keep their truck and bobcat busy while the rest of the crew paves can be cheaper.


If you need it placed and dressed, as in for a base for a lawn or such, then a Landscaping form is more likely what you are after.


Do not forget the compaction if talking a pad - with it, will settle like crazy and get soft with rain or spring thaw.
