Yeah charging by the day is just an extension of charging by the hour since there are only so many hours in a day. I would even give someone a slight break on my hourly rate if I was going to be at their property for a whole day because that takes out a LOT of down time expense of driving around. So yes if you think it will take you 4.5 days and there are 8 hours a day take your hourly rate and multiply by 36 and there ya go!

Good Luck!
