    Is anyone adding in fuel surcharges to there weekly maintenance visits?
    If so How are you figuring what to charge?

    my uncles are loggers on the west side of the state and they add on an 18% surcharge to there bill.
    I'm trying not to add the charge on to my weekly clients by the one time jobs I get I've been adding a 10% charge to the total bill and no one has said boo YET.

    I add 3% to total bil and have it stated if fuel goes over $4.25 it's 6% and over $5 its 10%. Plus if I have to double cut or triple cut a yard its another 30% more. Now double cuts if I have to do more then 1/2 of the yard.
