    Idunno jp,,, in my quarter i often as not don't do quotes, it;s a case of just please come and do it, don't even ask the hourly rate. Hoover my pal is charging 50p a mile when working on a come and do it base, and another 75p a mile. I usually just travel back and forth in the customers time, which works out much the same.
    So maybe, probably HMS inspect tax 45pee per mile is aboot right

    I charge about 24p per mile X 2 for there & back.    Some of my jobs are not priced so I give a detailed invoice & fuel is one of the items.      The cost is cost of fuel only.    I already make a yearly allowance for fuel on my hourly rate

    I've always included the travelling costs in the price of the job, can't see any point in separating it, after all you can't do the job without travelling to it can you!
