    I am wondering if I should charge for driving time to and from jobs. And should I charge for loading and unloading equipment. At the present time, I am charging $30/hr for weedeating, pushmowing, and blowing. $45/hr for tractor mowing. and $25/hr. for yard cleanup, etc...

    Sure, and why not charge them when you order out for food, and when your getting coffee in the morning as well. LOL just kidding:D

    You can't really charge for driving time. You shouldn't be going so far that it's a factor. If someone wants you to mow beyond a 10 mile radius . You should bid it so high that either they don't want you , or it will be worth it for you.
