Just curious to know if any of you have a "moving charge"....money charged to the client for "relocating" you after the first set. If you do charge, is it in your contract, or do you just spring it on them?
I have a "moving charge" clearly stated in the contract and am sooooo happy that I do.
It's "made" me money a few times and saved me extra moving at others.
i guess i did use it once also..paid off nicely
I charge a moving fee ( cartage) depending on how far the move is. For example, Some customers rent beach houses and have their ceremonies on the beach and a cocktail hour at the house. That is a an easy move so I do not charge for that. However, If i had to leave the beach and go to a whole new venue as part of the same wedding then I charge accordingly. I ask these question beforehand and include it in my overall fee.
Brad, I charge $25/man/move. It's mainly meant to discourage moving. I try to determine if moving is necessary when negotiating the contract. If they spring the moving requirement on me then I spring the price on them.
