- How Meridian Limo Charge and Pay?
Meridian Limo charges users for booking services (STC: Service Transportation Charge), the discounts we offer to a User are on us; we do not apply this discounts to the vehicle Operator.
As an operator you are in control of the price getting paid for each ride. Keep in mind that you are competing in a free market environment with others independent operators as well. The driver that offers the best price and service is more likely to get more and better jobs. You can change the price you charge us. The new price will take effect after we send you a written confirmation of the request.
Driver price depends on how we offer the trip:
Bid Offerings: We offer most of the jobs using a bid system to multiple drivers at the same time. The price you see on the app, is the all inclusive price we pay you. The first driver that accept the BID, is the driver that the trip is dispatched. Before accepting the trip be sure you can do it. Once you accept the bid, likely we confirm trip with passengers. To prevent unfair manipulation of the system to other drivers, there is a penalty fee for Bail-Out. The Minimum Bail-Out fee is $5.00 and can be up to the maximum the value of the trip depending on the recover cost.
Direct Assignment: We will pay you the customer price (not including our STC fee or discounts) less the discount you offer to us in order to get more preferences to get the job (Discount excludes gratuity, that is paid in full). This direct assignment trips are reserved in general for VIP’s or special requirements jobs. Our system use a complicated algorithm to calculate per mile rate, the hourly rate reference we display on this application is just a reference (For an accurate price, use our driver price tool calculator on the website). Select the Priority level that you expect us to paid on an hourly trip and the per mile rate will be related to this. You can request an upgrade later if you want.
Your Own Rates: When you select your own rates you are an affiliate. We will enter your info and rates in the system as an affiliate, means when all of our drivers are busy we will call you to request a trip based on your rate. We will send you a trip by email, you will confirm the trip with your price, then we will send you a link to update status.
The average cost of owning and operating a vehicle, AAA said, is about $8,500 and includes monthly payments, insurance and gas. But the cost, for example, of a new timing belt on average is between $400 and $900, an alternator or starter replacement is $400 to $600, and brakes are around $500.
Here’s what AAA recommends to keep your car — and your bank account — in good health:
- Set aside $50 a month for emergency auto repairs.
- Follow the automaker’s recommended maintenance schedule, which can be found in your owner’s manual or often online.
- Get cozy with a mechanic you trust before you find yourself in need of one.
- Get a written estimate for unanticipated repairs and confirm which repairs need to be done with the mechanic.
- Get a second opinion if you can.
- Take advantage of shop discounts or payment plans that help reduce out-of-pocket expenses, and see if there’s room to negotiate those costs.
