Assuming you mean a typical 10-15 CY (cubic yard) dump truck, figure on probably a minimum $50 delivery charge per load, and up to $150 if hauling from 20-30 miles away or if hauling into middle of urban area. Plus the cost of the topsoil - which can run from $5-15/CY in areas where it is readily available from local subdivision developments or cheap farm land being converted to commercial use, on up to as much as $50/cy or even rarely more in areas where true topsoil is rare like in rocky mountain and desert areas.

This presume a simple dump delivery in your drive or somewhere in your yard where he can just back up and dump- does NOT include moving it into a backyard or such.

Your Search the List category is Mulch and Topsoil, or if you want it delivered AND spread (at additional cost), then Landscaping.

Beware of driving a loaded dumptruck in your yard - avoid driving over wet or damp ground, and especially make sure you do not water for at least 3 days beforehand if driving on lawn - and in selecting dump site watch out for overhead trees and powerlines - should not be within 15 feet of any overhead line when dumping.
