what do you charge for delivery?

what do you charge for delivery? I have been asked to make cupcakes for a wedding that is about 35 km (20 miles?) away. I include local delivery (for orders above $60) but I don't have a rate for further then that.

I think the government amount is 55 cents a mile now, but you have to remember it's a round trip and many people charge $1 mile.

I have free delivery in town, about a 10 mile radius over $25. I block all my deliveries together to save time. After that it's the 55 cents a mile. I may change it with gas prices, but so far that works.

The first ten miles (round trip) are complimentary. After that I charge $2.00 a mile.

The federal allotment for mileage does not take into account the wear and tear and depreciation of my car.

There are times when I think I can help. Other times I think, given an already shallow gene pool, I am doing more for humanity by just letting go...

It also doesn't take into account compensating you for your time.

We charge $1/minute round trip.

thanks. That gives me a better idea. Would you also charge for set up too?

I'm in small town Indiana and I charge $1 per mile each way if venue is not local.

Yes, we charge $30 for the first 30 minutes, then $30 each additional 30 minutes. There have been occasions where the venue was not ready at the agreed upon delivery time, and waiting-around-time counts as setup time.
