Delivery fee

How much do you charge for delivering flowers to florist shops? Do any of you have any suggestions on what a delivery fee should be if I deliver to a florist shop that is a 60 mile round trip? The nearest cut flower wholesaler is about 50 miles away and I have heard that they charge around $8.00 to deliver. What do you think would be a reasonable fee for me to charge?

Way more than $8. How much are they buying from you? It has to be worth your while.

RE: Delivery fee

I deliver to four florist shops that are all in one city. They pretty much buy everything a have to offer.

RE: Delivery fee

A couple of ways to look at this. Is the florist calling you and requesting you to come? If so, then definately charge at least $8 or more. Or are you driving to them and hoping that they will buy? Also how large of an inventory are you carrying? FLorists will not want to pay a delivery charge just to receive two or three different types of flowers. An easier way to get that money may be to raise your price 50 cents or a dollar per bunch. For the last four or five years, I have charged a five dollar fee during my peak season, usually July thru September.

RE: Delivery fee

ggg, the nearest cut flower wholesaler is only miles from you. It's Cut Flower Wholesale (or er).
