Mover’s Talk

REGULARLY USED TERMINOLOGIES IN THE MOVING INDUSTRY

ORDER FOR SERVICE

This is a paper written and signed by you, giving the moving company the go-ahead to move your domestic items to another location.

GUARANTEED PICKUP AND DELIVERY SERVICE

This service is made applicable where the Mover fails to deliver your goods on the appointed time and date, as such the moving agent pays compensation for any of these failures, but the limitation here is that the agreements are based on a limited weight of the goods.

BILL OF LADDING

This is a detailed list of a ship or trucks cargo including the agreement for its transit. You need to sign this bill, so you must be in tandem with it before appending your signatures on any document especially the bill of lading. Most importantly, keep it safe.

ACCESSORIAL SERVICES

Additional services are areas that you will likely require, and as such need the movers’ services. Issues like packing, unpacking, car service and cleaning can be done for you by the mover. It’s charges are therefore an addition to previously agreed fees.

SHUTTLE CAR SERVICE

Assuming you are relocating to areas where the size of your moving truck can not easily access or is not allowed, therefore you need smaller cars, vans etc to do the final movement. If you also have a large family, your need for a small car shuttle is inevitable.

BINDING/NON-BINDING ESTIMATE

A contract made with the mover prior to moving that states categorically the summary in cost terms of moving based on the estimated quantities of goods and services needed, is a binding estimate. A non-binding estimate is an assumed sum of moving based on the weight of the articles to be moved and the additional services that is envisaged. It is not binding on the carrier and the actual cost depends on the final weight.

STORAGE-IN-TRANSIT (SIT)

This service is needed whereby you need to store some goods for a while due to unforeseen circumstances. A store house can be prepared for you on extra cost.

VALUATION

How much your article is worth in terms of monetary value can be termed valuation. If the mover has to take huge responsibilities for your goods, then you have to pay a higher valuation charge to complement the movers’ liability.

HIGH-VALUE ARTICLE

If you are moving expensive items, artworks, ornaments that are worth more than $100 for each pound, then these goods must be expressly declared to the mover so that he takes extra precaution for its safety. It is also for your own benefit to do so.

ADVANCED CHARGES

In case a carpenter, locksmith or any other third-party artisans does some extra work for you in the course of moving, this charges are taken care of by the mover, but you will have to likewise pay as the charges will be included in the bill of lading for you.

TRANSPORTATION CHARGES

For moving you in person to your new abode, an additional charge will be required from you as transportation.

So, the above listed terminologies are the mostly commonly used in the ever vibrant home moving industry.
