Moving FAQ -

What is a bill of Lading?

A bill of lading is a documented contract between the freight carrier and shipper which describes the receipt of goods for every shipment transported. The driver who loads your shipment will give you a bill of lading with information about the type, condition, amount, and destination of items. The paper also consists of the terms and conditions regarding the valuation of your shipment.

The customers are therefore requested to read the document carefully before you sign it. In case you find any discrepancy in the document, clear it with the driver to avoid any last moment hassle.

Q9 - What is Freight bill and Freight Charges?

A freight charge is a price that a carrier charges for transporting your goods from its source to destination. The amount may be charged on the basis of the weight of the shipment, volume of shipment, mode of shipment, the distance between the source and destination, etc.

A freight bill details the freight charges that are applicable for a shipment. This acts as an invoice for freight charges and proves useful for the purpose of record keeping and bill payment.

A freight invoice contains reference number, date of issue, customer’s/suppliers name and contact details, description of goods, moving quote, payment terms, etc. One must ensure that all such information is available in the freight bill to avoid any discrepancy of information.

Q10 - What is an order for service?

An order for service is a written confirmation of the services that you will be receiving by the interstate movers. The gives you information about the moving date, moving estimate, protection that you had opted for, and the amount to be paid at the time of delivery of your items. It is required to be signed by both the parties involved.

Please note, until the actual time of the move, you would not be asked for any money. In case you are asked, the company may not be legitimate. Further, based on the kind of estimate chosen, you may or may not be asked for an additional amount at the time of delivery.

Q11 - What are the most common payment methods?

The United States follows the concept of a cashless society. The frequently used payment methods in the United States include cash, card, or check. These payment methods may vary between the moving companies. We would, therefore, recommend you to connect with your local movers and ask for the payment methods that they accept.

In case of cancellation, if your mode of payment is digital then the amount would be automatically transferred to the source from which payment was originated. However, in the case of a cash transaction, you may be required to visit the place for a refund.
