To begin configuring your travel fee settings you should first log in to your supplier account. Then navigate to:
My Locations Travel Fees
This option allows you to globally set how far you are willing to travel to the move location.
Method of Calculation
Our system allows you to choose from two calculation methods: flat rate or per mile. You should choose the method that works best for your business and location.
Flat Rate Method
With the flat rate method you can set a fee for mileage ranges, such as 0-15 miles, 15-25 miles and so on. The primary benefit of this method is the predictability of the fee amount.
Per Mile Method
With the per mile method you can set a fee amount that applies per mile. You can also set a threshold for when the fee should begin calculating.
You also have the ability to configure an automatic discount to your travel fee during the off season. Most years the off season is defined in our system as October 15th - March 15th, but you can verify this by hovering over the tooltip icon.
Testing Your Settings
Once you've configured the various settings you can test the results using our travel charge calculator. Simply enter a local zip code and you will see the total travel charge that is being calculated based on your settings.
