Fuel Surcharge Notification

Dear Valued Customer:

Since 2004, Great Lakes Power Vac (GLPV) has been committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective, safe, and reliable industrial vacuuming, hydro-excavation, water blasting, and related industrial cleaning and remediation services. As part of this commitment to its clients, GLPV has provided straight-forward pricing without applying fuel or environmental surcharges. GLPV was able to continue this practice even through the challenging times that faced us the last two years by absorbing the extra costs. Unfortunately, those additional costs have now risen to a point where it is not responsible for GLPV to absorb all the costs. Some of these cost factors include:

  • Diesel prices and fuel prices in general are at a record high and are expected to remain at these levels for the foreseeable future.
  • Transportation costs in general continue to increase just as drivers and equipment have become scarce.
  • Our customers have always relied on GLPV to provide Cleaner, Safer, Better Environments. Environmental compliance is at the core of this pledge. Environmental compliance fees have significantly increased in the past couple of years.
  • Vendors and suppliers continue to pass on price increases.
  • Insurance cost increases have approached double-digit hikes.
  • Inflation in general has affected business costs.

Due to the confluence of these factors, GLPV will be instituting a fuel surcharge to cover some of the increased costs. The surcharge will apply solely to the equipment and vehicles used on projects. The fuel surcharge will initially be set at 12.5%. GLPV reserves the right to adjust the surcharge based upon market factors. Any adjustments to the fuel surcharge will be instituted on the first of each month and be published on GLPV’s website.

We at GLPV value your business and remain committed to providing quality solutions to your industrial needs. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We look forward to serving you in the near future.
