What's even better is the MSCs who use area code instead of zip code. The entire state of Alaska is on one area code. Here in the Florida keys, the entire 126 mile stretch of islands as well as the mainland through Miami. I get a bunch of emails/calls for shops in the upper keys or Miami with no PAD because they're "in my shopping area" even though Miami is 150 miles and takes 4 hours one way with normal traffic.@FrostyBubbles wrote:
Oh - and another thing to keep in mind that schedulers will use the zip code you are staying in and the zip where the shop is. In rural areas a zip code could be a very large area. I had one scheduler call and ask me to do a shop that was "35 miles" from me, with no bonus. When I googled my address to the shop address it was almost 85 miles, one way.
