Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariff

Do you need help creating or understanding Georgia intrastate moving tariffs? If so, you're in the right spot. Our organization can take care of all your tariff-related needs. From creating moving tariffs on your behalf to providing moving tariff guidance. Let’s go over the basics of Georgia intrastate moving tariffs.

What Are Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariffs?

A Georgia intrastate moving tariff applies only to intrastate traffic. This refers to the following three concepts for household goods movers.

1. The traffic has to originate within Georgia.
2. The address of the destination has to stay within Georgia.
3. The entire transportation of a move must stay within Georgia.

This is a law put in place by the Georgia Department of Public Safety. And it’s enforced as part of the Household Goods Carrier Certificates. Georgia motor carrier regulations are part of MCCD regulation compliance.

What Is a Moving Tariff?

A moving tariff features each carrier’s rates. A tariff also contains a list of rules and charges that govern each shipment. The terms of those rules and charges do not vary. A moving tariff helps reserve a carrier’s right to apply extra charges. This takes place when more moving services get performed. A tariff positions a carrier to apply charges. The tariff charges get based on the specific weight of the transported items.

Is It Against the Law to Move at Night in Georgia?

It is against the law to move at night in most US states. Georgia is no exception. Moving at night's prohibited in the state of Georgia. You could also face fines and penalties if you were to receive a noise complaint and loading or unloading late at night. That alone is a reason to only operate your moving services during daytime hours.

Georgia Local Moving Tariff Changes

Recent changes have taken place for Georgia local moving tariffs. The most recent change took place on March 8, 2018. This was when the state Board of Public Safety created a new maximum rate tariff.

The new tariff rate applies to all intrastate household goods movers within Georgia. After the vote, an Administrative Order put the new tariff into law. The new tariff replaces the previous Georgia Public Service Commission max rate tariff.

Household goods movers can no longer apply policies toward that outdated tariff.

Let’s go over the two important Georgia tariff changes that went into effect in 2018.

1. There is a 15 percent increase in maximum allowable rates.
2. There is a change in the default valuation approach. This applies to items moved by depreciated value up to a max amount for release value.

That rate is set at $0.60 per pound per article. Please call our firm today if you would like to view the new Georgia tariff policy. We can also supply you with a copy of the 2018 Georgia Administrative Order.

My brother and I relied on Moving Authority to obtain all the required permits and start our small moving company here in Augusta. At first, we thought it was very complicated because of all the dot and fees. Within a couple of weeks, we were receiving the Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariff. They were able to do several processes simultaneously and we are about to open. We are very pleased and grateful.

Due to the expansion of my business and the need to constantly move in and out of Atlanta, I hired the services of Moving Authority to obtain the Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariff. The rates are well justified according to the weight of the cargo, and I am pleased with that. I highly recommend this service.

We started a small moving company inside Georgia State, and we needed to put the new tariff into law. A friend informed me that at Moving Authority were experts in building the Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariff; therefore, I called them. They certainly knew everything about it. Now it's all set up.

Gery Wastenage


We are now ready to begin operating within the state of Georgia. Thanks to the specialists at Moving Authority who guided us through the preparation of the Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariffs. It was an excellent job they did to adapt our old tariffs. I will continue to call them for any other requirements.

It's terrific news we received our Georgia household goods tariff. My company couldn't haul in Georgia since we didn't have the Georgia intrastate moving tariffs. Thankfully Moving Authority took our case and solved it in a heartbeat.

We are a small company trying to settle in Georgia State for business. Although starting a moving company in Georgia is not difficult, we needed some legal advice about how to publish a Moving Tariff and being a part of the Georgia movers association. Moving Authority, thanks for your help!

The Motor Carrier Act, passed by Congress in 1935, replace the code of competition. The authorization the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) place was to regulate the trucking industry. Since then the ICC has been long abolished, however, it did quite a lot during its time. Based on the recommendations given by the ICC, Congress enacted the first hours of services regulation in 1938. This limited driving hours of truck and bus drivers. In 1941, the ICC reported that inconsistent weight limitation imposed by the states cause problems to effective interstate truck commerce.

In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

The number one hit on the Billboard chart in 1976 was quite controversial for the trucking industry. "Convoy," is a song about a group of reckless truck drivers bent on evading laws such as toll booths and speed traps. The song went on to inspire the film "Convoy", featuring defiant Kris Kristofferson screaming "piss on your law!" After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike. The participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis. However, similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis.

Popular among campers is the use of lightweight trailers, such as aerodynamic trailers. These can be towed by a small car, such as the BMW Air Camper. They are built with the intent to lower the tow of the vehicle, thus minimizing drag.

The Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula is a mathematical formula used in the United States to determine the appropriate gross weight for a long distance moving vehicle, based on the axle number and spacing. Enforced by the Department of Transportation upon long-haul truck drivers, it is used as a means of preventing heavy vehicles from damaging roads and bridges. This is especially in particular to the total weight of a loaded truck, whether being used for commercial moving services or for long distance moving services in general.   According to the Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula, the total weight of a loaded truck (tractor and trailer, 5-axle rig) cannot exceed 80,000 lbs in the United States. Under ordinary circumstances, long-haul equipment trucks will weight about 15,000 kg (33,069 lbs). This leaves about 20,000 kg (44,092 lbs) of freight capacity. Likewise, a load is limited to the space available in the trailer, normally with dimensions of 48 ft (14.63 m) or 53 ft (16.15 m) long, 2.6 m (102.4 in) wide, 2.7 m (8 ft 10.3 in) high and 13 ft 6 in or 4.11 m high.

Truckload shipping is the movement of large amounts of cargo. In general, they move amounts necessary to fill an entire semi-trailer or inter-modal container. A truckload carrier is a trucking company that generally contracts an entire trailer-load to a single customer. This is quite the opposite of a Less than Truckload (LTL) freight services. Less than Truckload shipping services generally mix freight from several customers in each trailer. An advantage Full Truckload shipping carriers have over Less than Truckload carrier services is that the freight isn't handled during the trip. Yet, in an LTL shipment, goods will generally be transported on several different trailers.

In 1991 the film "Thelma & Louise" premiered, rapidly becoming a well known movie. Throughout the movie, a dirty and abrasive truck driver harasses the two women during chance encounters. Author Michael Dunne describes this minor character as "fat and ignorant" and "a lustful fool blinded by a delusion of male superiority". Thelma and Louise exact their revenge by feigning interest in him and then blowing up his tanker truck full of gas.

The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway that purposely avoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village. Bypasses were created with the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general they are supposed to reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety will greatly improve.   A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise, is called a truck route.

The 1950's were quite different than the years to come. They were more likely to be considered "Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers. In these times truck drivers were envied and were viewed as an opposition to the book "The Organization Man". Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day. He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers". Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Drivers routinely sabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) conducted a series of tests. These tests were extensive field tests of roads and bridges to assess damages to the pavement. In particular they wanted to know how traffic contributes to the deterioration of pavement materials. These tests essentially led to the 1964 recommendation by AASHTO to Congress. The recommendation determined the gross weight limit for trucks to be determined by a bridge formula table. This includes table based on axle lengths, instead of a state upper limit. By the time 1970 came around, there were over 18 million truck on America's roads.

In 1933, as a part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, the National Recovery Administration requested that each industry creates a “code of fair competition”. The American Highway Freight Association and the Federated Trucking Associations of America met in the spring of 1933 to speak for the trucking association and begin discussing a code. By summer of 1933 the code of competition was completed and ready for approval. The two organizations had also merged to form the American Trucking Associations. The code was approved on February 10, 1934. On May 21, 1934, the first president of the ATA, Ted Rogers, became the first truck operator to sign the code. A special "Blue Eagle" license plate was created for truck operators to indicate compliance with the code.

In order to load or unload bots and other cargo to and from a trailer, trailer winches are designed for this purpose. They consist of a ratchet mechanism and cable. The handle on the ratchet mechanism is then turned to tighten or loosen the tension on the winch cable. Trailer winches vary, some are manual while others are motorized. Trailer winches are most typically found on the front of the trailer by towing an A-frame.

The term 'trailer' is commonly used interchangeably with that of a travel trailer or mobile home. There are varieties of trailers and manufactures housing designed for human habitation. Such origins can be found historically with utility trailers built in a similar fashion to horse-drawn wagons. A trailer park is an area where mobile homes are designated for people to live in.   In the United States, trailers ranging in size from single-axle dollies to 6-axle, 13 ft 6 in (4,115 mm) high, 53 ft (16,154 mm) in long semi-trailers is common. Although, when towed as part of a tractor-trailer or "18-wheeler", carries a large percentage of the freight. Specifically, the freight that travels over land in North America.

In today's popular culture, recreational vehicles struggle to find their own niche. Travel trailers or mobile home with limited living facilities, or where people can camp or stay have been referred to as trailers. Previously, many would refer to such vehicles as towable trailers.

Moving companies that operate within the borders of a particular state are usually regulated by the state DOT. Sometimes the public utility commission in that state will take care of it. This only applies to some of the U.S. states such as in California (California Public Utilities Commission) or Texas (Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. However, no matter what state you are in it is always best to make sure you are compliant with that state

There are various versions of a moving scam, but it basically begins with a prospective client. Then the client starts to contact a moving company to request a cost estimate. In today's market, unfortunately, this often happens online or via phone calls. So essentially a customer is contacting them for a quote when the moving company may not have a license. These moving sales people are salesman prone to quoting sometimes low. Even though usually reasonable prices with no room for the movers to provide a quality service if it is a broker.

Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the most common government agency that is devoted to transportation in the United States. The DOT is the largest United States agency with the sole purpose of overseeing interstate travel and issue's USDOT Number filing to new carriers. The U.S., Canadian provinces, and many other local agencies have a similar organization in place. This way they can provide enforcement through DOT officers within their respective jurisdictions.
