Fuel Surcharge

Fuel Surcharge

June 17th, 2022

On May 9th we implemented our temporary fuel surcharge of $4.00 for each mobile grooming appointment. As you are no doubt painfully aware, fuel prices have continued to climb to all-time highs. PurrFurred Pet Styling had resisted implementing our original fuel surcharge of $4.00 for as long as possible and unfortunately this amount is no longer adequate.

Beginning Monday, June 20th, we will begin using the following chart to calculate the cost of our fuel surcharge on a weekly basis. This will be calculated weekly each Monday morning and will be based on the EIA reported weekly retail gasoline price in the Chicago area for regular grade gasoline: https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/pet_pri_gnd_dcus_yord_w.htm

$6.76 to $7.00$13.00
$7.01 to $7.25$14.00

This surcharge is temporary and will continue to apply to each home  (NOT each pet) and remain separate from our usual charges.

We appreciate your understanding of the dilemma we face as fuel costs increase. We hope that by sharing this burden, we can maintain the high-quality service you have come to expect from PurrFurred Pet Styling.
