I've been using my truck to help the boss out, making a few trips either dropping off crates of equipment for customers or picking up stuff he's bought at auction. This month I've racked up 542 miles and $120 in fuel which I put on the company issued credit card. Now I'm told I'll be paid 50 cents/mile and that is supposed to include cost of fuel and the $120 will be taken out of my reimbursement check. Is that how this really works? Wouldn't a 1 ton diesel truck command a higer mileage rate? I always figured cost of fuel as an expense and mileage rates were towards wear and tear on a personal vehicle ie tires/brakes/oil change ect but not fuel. Then there was the use of my straps and chains (cause he doesn't have any) my knoledge on how to secure a load and get it delivered safely and on time (last load was 4 big crates of precision stages worth half a million bucks and weighing in at 2700lbs.) I just got this feeling like I'm getting screwed over. Am I out of line or does hauling for your employer really pay peanuts?

Standard IRS mileage reimbursement rates for 2009 is 55 cents per mile. However, that's for tax purposes.
After they deduct for fuel, you're getting $151 for using your truck for 542 miles.

My company pays .43 a mile, and no fuel. When it came to them saying they were gonna make me drive my ex for that, I told them no way, they need to get me a rental, or a company van. Month later, I had a company van as I refused to drive the ex. (It also cost me $200+ to fill at that time.)
Personally, your getting ripped off. Think of the freight charge they would have incurred if you didn't have your truck or your knowledge. Does your insurance cover cargo in your truck? Thats also a risk that YOUR taking. I'd be careful.
A company i worked for years ago used to pay us $550.00 a month for your use, a gas card for business use,and $600.00 twice a year for maintenance.only down fall was monthly and biannual payments were taxable, still worked out pretty good. Your getting screwed , also god forbid, you can get yourself into a trick bag hauling any more than "casual" with ins. co.

i get 55 cents per mile. Nothing else, that is the compensation for wear and tear and fuel... they dont give a chit what i drive.
same at my work.
I don't mind it and seems to be a reasonable rate to me specially for just running around, if I had a car it would be more money in my pocket but even at 15mpg and $3 per gallon it still costs me only 20cents a mile in fuel and to me I figure I am gonna wear out my truck and need maintenance all on my own so I figure if it covers my fuel and directly incurred expenses then I am all set.
Now if they were to make a regular habit out of it where you were putting on 500+ (arbitrary number) miles per month or so then might want to look into the compensation a little more, or using a company vehicle/equipment. Plus making sure you have the proper cargo insurance, DOT numbers and possible hauling authority or whatever commercial/federal regulations you might fall under such as a log book and/or health card as some might see the line between machinist and hired driver fading out.
