The question looks very complicated but when you break it down it's surely just a case of adding up each day's cost. There are 3 things that contribute to the cost each day. 1/ Crew labour cost. 2/ Vehicle standing charge, 3/ Mileage charge. You could draw up a simple chart to help you work it out. Just calculate each bit separately. If it still looks daunting, just concentrate on the first day. When you've done that, you'll feel better about tackling the following day and so on.
