Why do I have to pay $29.00 for a Trip Fee?


We here at CTGutterPro have been in business for over 30+ years now and one question we always get asked is, “What’s the 29.00 trip charge?”.

The Trip Charge is something we don’t bury in the cost of our job itself and is something we never hide from our customers. We specifically itemize it so that you can see exactly what you’re paying for.

A few years ago, we found that with the high cost of gas, plus maintenance on our trucks, that we needed to add this small cost to help us keep our gutter/insulation prices low, so that we can help you. We did not add an actual mileage-based trip charge, which far much more expensive.

Our trucks get 5-6 miles per gallon and we service them every 3, 000 miles. The cost of this expenditure comes to about $1,000.00-$2,500.00, for each service. As you can see from our website, we post our gutter cover prices, as well as our basic and tune-up prices for gutter cleanings. We believe in being honest and upfront with you. We will never gouge you with hidden fees.

The $29.00 is a small charge for us to continue to provide you with outstanding customer service, featuring our own highest-quality products with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty, from a company whom you can rely on to always be there when you need us.
