Charges & Payments

Pickup Charge

Inside Local Zone is Free

Local Zone free pick up area

My local zone is a 12 mile travel distance from West Park Farm that stretches to St Teath in the North, Saint Enoder off the A30 in the South and Bodmin in the East. If either the pick up or destination point falls within this zone then pick up is free.

Outside Local Zone Charge

If both pick up and destination fall outside the zone then the pick up charge is calculated on the closest point in the following way:
Pickup Charge = (Distance of point from White Horse Office – 12) * £1.00 per mile to an accuracy of 1/10 mile and rounded up to nearest 50p.


Pickup: Truro Distance: 21.7 miles from WHO using fastest route.
Destination: Penzance Distance: 43.7 miles from WHO using fastest route.

Pickup Charge = (21.7 – 12) * £1 = £9.70 => £10.00 initial meter charge.
