With the out of control price of gas, more companies than ever are charging a fuel surcharge. Are there any flooring installers out there who, because of the rising cost of gas are now forced to charge a fuel or trip charge?

RE: Trip Charge
I have been adding a $10.00 charge to all of my bid jobs for several months now. I put an apology right in the description column of my proposals that says "unfortunate but necessary." I have not had any complaints from customers. Everyone knows it's tough right now. The retailers I work for have not come around yet, so I make even less money working for the shops, but this is just more reason to seek out my own work.
