Quoted from Borygard:

I used to do a bunch of service calls in the Pittsburgh area, and would be happy to help if I was over that way again. I don't get that way much any more though with not doing Allentown or ReplayFX recently.
I don't understand the drive time thing though. Why would someone pay me to sit on my ass to get to them? Time is money for sure, but the way I work it is to get enough calls (or include with a show trip) in the area to make it worth the trip. Paying me to just sit in the car just doesn't seem right.

Trip charge, minimum charge, drive time, however you wanna call it, if you are driving to a clients to work on something you need to have an assurance of your costs being covered. I used to have drive time charges in my business and now I just have increased rates with one hour minimums and one hour billing increments. Honestly, it works out the same in terms of dollars, but is easier to explain to customers at invoice time.
