    Just wanting to get an idea of the amount of time everyone wastes driving around? How many (approximate) hours per day do you spend driving around? How many hours per week do you spend driving from one place to the next? Thought it would be interesting to see the figures.

    Yesterday was 3.52 manhours (2 guys) which means about 1-3/4 hours drive time in a 10 hour day with 14 accounts serviced - not to bad.

    In a week I'd guess we spend between 5 & 6 hours on the road servicing 40+ accounts plus whatever else pops up during the week. I know it's a lot of non-production hours but it's all figured into the cost of service/cost of doing business.
