If I haul for local friends I charge $2/mile and $15/hr. Both.

If you're just doing a short haul I would charge a flat rate, like average mileage now a days is only $0.50 a mile, but since your shipping live horses maybe a fee for handling as well.

A friend of mine has charged $1 per mile the past couple of years. I don't know if he's going to increase that now or not. I've been trying to decide how much to charge when I haul for someone next week as I don't want it to be more than if they hauled themselves, but I need to be sure I'm not shorting myself, either.

I would think that a big hauler might be a little less expensive for long hauls since they can haul a bunch of horses at one time.

I ended up renting a truck that we can haul ourselves. It's a bummer when your own hauling vehicle has issues!
