Just had a meeting with a foundation contractor, in addition to his labor charge he wants to charge me a "rent " for using his forms. They are his forms, he does not have to rent them from a third party.

Is this normal to rent forms from a foundation co. that has their own forms? If it is, there a sq/ft formula that would help me determine if I'm getting ripped off.

House is 3,300sq/ft on 4' crawlspace, garage is 2,800sq/ft with avg 2' walls, all on 507ft of footer. He said they will pour all footings at once and walls in two separate pours.

They want to charge $6,000 just for form rentals.

Seems kind of steep to me just to rent something, comments would be appreciated... Dennis (in Canada were everything is more expensive than it should be).

Seems to me you would want to take that into account when you compare his bid with other contractor's bids you get for the foundation.  It might not be the usual way a contractor would handle it, but the only thing I would caution you on is the time frame.  You should have in the contract a maximum amount of rental charge in case he disappears on you for a month while he does another job and tries to charge you for the time.  You're kind of at his mercy otherwise.
