I am trying to finalize my prices and paperwork for my new cake business and am wondering what you all charge for delivery, or how to determine what to charge. I see so many different things, and so many that are not listed on other decorator's websites that I have no idea where to price myself.

We charge $1/minute based on the Google Maps estimate.

I charge $.54 per mile round trip. I asked my husband what his company pays him for mileage and just went with that icon_smile.gif

FYI, when companies reimburse for mileage it is to cover only the cost of gas and wear & tear on the vehicle. If delivering products for your business you should also include the cost of your time.

Thank you for your responses! That helps a lot.

Jason_kraft, do you charge $1/minute round-trip, or just to the venue?

$1/minute round trip. Plus an additional premium if the delivery is during a weekday rush hour.

$50 flat fee, unless it is outside of our area, then it is more

I should also say, wedding cake delivery is free within my city and party cakes/cupcakes are $20. The delivery fee I posted before is only for out of town.
