In an effort to keep my pricing competitive I don’t charge mileage within 35 miles of Pacific, Missouri.
I can get to most locations I’ve photographed over the years with no additional charge.
Mileage greater than 70 miles from Pacific is billed the following rate for 2019
• Additional mileage > 70 miles round trip from Pacific, MO - Each mile is billed .58 per mile
• Additional drive time is billed at $30/hour or $.50/minute - Additional drive time begins at the first 30 minutes traveled each direction.
Example pricing - Pacific, MO to Florissant, MO - Distance - 44.4 miles - 44 minutes
44.4 miles travelled - 35 free miles from Pacific = 9.4 billable miles
44 minutes travelled - 30 minutes free from Pacific = 14 billable minutes
Mileage charge = 9.4 x .58 = $5.45 / Time charge = 14 x .50 = $7.00
Total = $12.45 (each way) or $24.90 RT (this charge is an approximate and may change due to travel conditions)
Time is charged separate from mileage. Some locations in the St. Louis metro are within 35 miles from my location but may take 50 minutes to drive. I find this occurs when traveling to St. Peter’s, St. Charles, O’Fallon, and other locations North of the Missouri River.
