Don't "offer" him anything. Tell him what you need done and ASK him how much he wants. Then pay him. If you think he wants too much, negotiate with him (a case of beer might go pretty far or offer to buy lunch, etc). Otherwise buy your own truck/trailer/fuel/insurance and haul it yourself.

Is he a professional hauler, or is the rollback truck just a toy that he has for personal use?

If he's a pro, pay his going rate. That is the fair and honest thing to do. He might give you a discount, but don't begrudge him if he doesn't.

Personal use is a whole other can of worms. Him hauling your tractor for you pushes him into commercial status, even if you pay him under the table, or not at all. Him hauling his own tractor (hint hint) is usually okay, as long as you're not hauling it to a show where it could win an award. Some states consider a trophy compensation, therefore you're hauling for profit, therefore you are commercial.

Depends on what you can or will do for him in the near future. If you don't want to owe him, then the $250 loaded mile or you could buy a trailer and see what it costs to do it yourself. Unless you haul often , paying someone else is a BARGAIN!!

I wouldn't pay him anything. It kinda depends if you are poor or just cheap, going rate or nothing.

Key word is friend.Freindship should have a high value and good friends are hard to come by.I usually do things cheaply for my friends as they usually pay me back more than I would have even asked in the future by repaying the favor.I saw a saying that said a friend in need is a pain in the !!! but I dont feel that way.Fuel alone is close to $1 a loaded mile

Atleast $65 an hour and honestly if I was in his shoes and had a nice rollback, friend thing aside, I'd probably be charging more than that. It's just so expensive to be on the road today (legally). I quoted hourly because to me that is a local trip where you really don't get enough miles to eat the unloading and loading. Most short distance equipment haulers are this way.

With the cost of insurance,fuel,wear and tear your looking at 2-2.50 a mile. That"s going rate ask for a flat rate. Or buy fuel ,lunch,and offer cash to boot.
