Fuel Surcharges

Background

  • Diesel prices represent a highly significant element of our overall cost base
  • Diesel prices rose heavily between September 2010-2011, but have remained steady since
  • While we seek to offset these cost increases through improved efficiencies, they are such that they must be passed to our customers as a fuel surcharge
  • In establishing this fuel surcharge, we seek to be:
    • Comparable with our competitors and market practise
    • Clear and consistent: surcharges are based on average prices published by the AA and are inclusive of duties and taxes applicable in the UK.

    • Fair and honest: surcharges go up and down in line with published prices


The policy for Speedel SameDay Services

  • All customer contracts will include a base price for diesel
  • As each customer’s invoice is raised the ruling price for diesel published by the AA will be compared to each customer’s base price:
    • For every 1p (or part thereof) upwards movement in published pence per litre diesel prices, Speedel will apply a 0.25% fuel surcharge to each invoice
    • For every 1p (or part thereof) downwards movement in published pence per litre diesel prices, Speedel will apply a 0.25% reduction in your Fuel Surcharge till the Surcharge reaches 0 – at which point there will be no surcharge applied to your invoice
    • At every annual price review, existing fuel surcharges/rebates will be rolled into the delivery tariff and the base price for diesel will be reset to the ruling market price at the time.
