How far have you traveled for a job?

Man today I traveled 66 miles to do 4 cleanups.One of them was more than a regular cleanup and required moving hunks of cement and wood to where they were having a dumpster dropped. Me and a helper worked for 9 hours.
Do any of you charge a per mile fee for jobs like that. I was thinking 50 cents a mile then charge for the jobs on top of that.

I wouldn't charge the customers for mileage, but you'd have to include it in your price. Know if it's 30 miles away, charge another $15 to get there.. etc.

I am debating buying on if those new Echo Bed Redefiners. Have any of you guys used one, or seen one in action? I am just trying to get some feedback before I spend $650-700
Thanks
