I would confront them about it. Maybe they have time/mileage minimum?

I agree.  Ask them to justify the per mile fee for more miles than it will be as well as the rental for 5 hours when it will probably only take 3.  JoJo is right, maybe they have minimums or possibly this is a not to exceed (NTE) cost.  All relevant questions to ask them to clarify. 

I hear you though on this.  When Fiance and I have submitted for a few online quotes we have submitted 2, mine requesting it for a wedding and his requesting it for just a party.  We fully plan on argueing if any are different.  So far it hasn’t been an issue but we just getting started contacting vendors.

I agree, breakdowns are RIDICULOUS sometimes. I had this catering proposal where the food cost $25/person, but with all the extra bells and whistles, they got it up to over $100/person. It was crazy.

Hmmmm… that would tick me off too! Is there any way you could try to negotiate? I’m big on that.

Those extras will get you, and they add up fast.  At least you know what it’s going toward though.  I would probably ask if anything can be negotiated or waved though, but that’s just me trying to save even more.
