I'm in Canada and I don't use the blue book. I use my own trip charge amount and hourly labour rate based on my competitors in my city. I don't know that I could charge what the blue book says. Are most of you who use the blue book in large cities? The city I'm in is only 17,000. I think my customers would throw me out if I tried to charge the same as the blue book. People are really ok with paying those prices? I do wonder if I should be charging more though. Trip charge $40, Labour $60/hr, mileage .70/km. What do you think? These prices are not a whole lot lower than my competitors though.
