Tariffs and Contracts



Welcome to the world of moving tariffs and contracts. Both of which are crucial to the success of moving companies. In fact, having high-quality published tariffs and contracts benefit more than carrier organizations. They also benefit customers. Why? The tariffs and contracts help ensure that customers are aware of what they’re paying for. Tariffs and contracts are the glue that keeps the client-company relationship flourishing. So, are you ready to learn about moving tariffs and contracts? Let’s get started.



What Are Moving Tariffs and Contracts?



Tariffs and contracts are crucial documents within the moving industry. The tariffs get provided to customers by their respective moving companies. The tariff/contract serves as an outline of all rates and potential charges. A tariff/contract also points out the terms of service. This is very important for customers. In fact, all customers should understand the terms of service before a move takes place. Here is an example. Say that there is a chance a customer might have to cancel a move. The moving contract should provide the customer with an official cancellation policy. Plus, it should also state extra service where extra fees will apply. The length of moving tariffs and contracts varies depending on the company. Sometimes a tariff is only a single page. But sometimes it’s more than a dozen pages. The length depends on the circumstances of each move. 

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has made one thing very clear. It demands every interstate moving company must have the ability to provide tariffs. As soon as a customer requests a mover’s tariff, a company has a legal obligation to deliver it. In fact, the moving and storage industry has many regulations. You're welcome to contact our organization if you ever have questions about regulations. When it comes to rate negotiation tactics, that’s up to each moving company. Every company has its own rate negotiation policy. Once a rate gets agreed-upon, that rate becomes official through the moving contract. Keep in mind that the moving and storage industry is very competitive. That’s why most companies are willing to adjust their prices for their customers. Rate negotiation is crucial when it comes to running a successful moving company. The rate changes are never guaranteed upfront. They only are once the draft of a tariff and contract gets finalized.

How Do Moving Companies Create Their Tariffs and Contracts?


Keep in mind that the terms “tariff” and “contract” often refer to the same document. After all, moving tariffs serve as legal contracts. The contracts give each customer a full breakdown of a moving organization’s fees. Plus, contracts also illustrate all relevant rules and regulations. In the past, a lot of companies have turned to attorneys to help them with tariffs and contracts. Why? To make sure that each tariff/contract complies with 100% legal conditions. But more and more companies are now turning to third-party tariff building services. Tariff building organizations (like ours) specialize in building high-quality tariffs. They know how to ensure a company’s customers have clarified outlines. This is so all customers know what to expect before each move. Sure, there are some standard moving tariff templates that companies can use. But each tariff is unique and based on the circumstances of specific moves. 



Moving Companies Can Avoid Legal Trouble Through Quality Tariffs and Contracts 



Published tariffs and contracts should always appear unique. Companies can't operate in a collective manner with other companies using similar tariffs. This process has a name: collective rate-marking/collective tariff-making. When this happens, a moving company can face very severe fines. This refers to anti-trust prosecution that the Department of Justice conducts. So, what’s the best way for a moving company to avoid anti-trust prosecution? It’s to have custom tariffs get published on a regular basis by a third party. But getting custom tariffs published isn’t only about adhering to the law. It’s also about providing customers with better selections and choices. After all, seeing competitive rates is a huge incentive for customers. It makes them want to book with moving companies. Third party tariff publishers ensure that those rates are obvious to prospective customers. Please contact us today for more information about how to create and publish tariffs.



Why Are Mover’s Tariffs and Contracts So Important?



Many people assume that tariffs and contracts are only important for moving companies. But that’s not the case. Yes, interstate movers need quality tariffs and contracts. Why? So that they can remain in good standing with the law. But the consumer also needs well-written tariffs and contracts. In fact, the documents have tons of uses for customers. What is the number one benefit of tariffs and contracts? It’s that they prevent surprises from taking place. They position customers to understand everything that they need to. Once this happens, it’s more likely that moving days will go well without any road bumps. Plus, reading a tariff/contract positions people to ask questions ahead of time. This will prevent a company’s workers from having to juggle many things during a move.

Customers are encouraged to ask for tariffs if their moving companies do not offer them. That’s why each company must get prepared to provide tariffs before all moves take place. The tariff/contract is crucial. It provides people with complete breakdowns of important information. After all, customers should know what specific services they are paying for. And providing tariffs and contracts is a company’s main resource for making that happen. Moving companies need to work fast to write their tariffs and contracts. Otherwise, impatient customers will decide to hire other companies. This is another reason why third-party tariff builders are so important. They can create tariffs and contracts faster than most moving and storage companies. 

The more transparent the contract is, the greater the chance of a successful move. Customers should get encouraged to read their contracts word-for-word. If not, then they will ask moving employees plenty of questions. You can encourage people to take their time reading the contracts. Telling them that some agreed-upon services/rates can get modified is also important. This is an issue that causes a lot of confusion for many customers. The last thing you want to deal with is a customer that claims there is an unexpected charge. Transparent tariffs and contracts will prevent that situation from taking place. Plus, all rates and policies will appear obvious on the tariffs and contracts.

Standard Charges That Tariffs and Contracts Cover



Moving tariffs and contracts serve a key purpose: they break down rates and charges. This applies to much more than the entire rate of a move. It also applies to many other common relocation charges. So, let’s go over some standard items that tariffs and contracts cover. 

Packing costs are often included in the tariffs and charges. This applies to both full-service packing and on the fly packing. Sometimes customers forget to pack certain items and movers must pack at a moment’s notice. It’s important that all packing services get listed on tariffs and contracts. Supply costs are another crucial contract item. Certain moving organizations charge extra fees for using specific supplies. For example, providing extra boxes could count as a unique charge. Or, providing extra packing materials could serve as a supply cost. It’s important that a contract includes every single supply cost that a company provides. The same concept applies toward insurance costs. A quality contract/tariff should outline all charges related to various insurance plans. These are plans that moving companies provide to customers. 

Moving conditions are another item that belong in tariffs and contracts. For example, say a company’s movers have to walk up and down stairs. Or, say that there’s something else that makes their job difficult during a move. The extra charge for any type of moving condition should get listed in the contract or tariff. A condition is any concept that makes it hard for movers to transfer belongings out of a location. Storage is another key term here. Some customers will opt to store their goods with a company during the move. If this is the case for your organization, then you need to feature storage costs in your tariffs. The tariff should define the terms of storage and state how much the service costs. Another common contract/tariff item is the long carry fee. This applies when movers cannot park a truck near a pick-up/drop-off location. This means that the workers have to walk a certain distance to load or unload.  The specific distances and charges should go in your tariffs and contracts.



Conclusion: Using Quality Tariffs and Contracts Will Make a Big Difference



Tariffs and contracts matter. They are the lifeblood of moving and storage companies. Without using quality tariffs/contracts, companies risk getting fined into nonexistence. Plus, customers appreciate when all rates and charges appear organized and clear. Also, moving company workers function better when contracts and tariffs are in order.

Did You Know

Question In 1999, The Simpsons episode Maximum Homerdrive aired. It featured Homer and Bart making a delivery for a truck driver named Red after he unexpectedly dies of 'food poisoning'.

Question

Very light trucks. Popular in Europe and Asia, many mini-trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles, usually with monocoque bodies. Specialized designs with substantial frames such as the Italian Piaggio shown here are based upon Japanese designs (in this case by Daihatsu) and are popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities that often have very narrow alleyways. Regardless of the name, these small trucks serve a wide range of uses. In Japan, they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break on taxes for buying a smaller and less-powerful vehicle (currently, the engine is limited to 660 ccs {0.66L} displacement). These vehicles are used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. These Japanese-made mini trucks that were manufactured for on-road use are competing with off-road ATVs in the United States, and import regulations require that these mini trucks have a 25 mph (40 km/h) speed governor as they are classified as low-speed vehicles. These vehicles have found uses in construction, large campuses (government, university, and industrial), agriculture, cattle ranches, amusement parks, and replacements for golf carts.Major mini truck manufacturers and their brands: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishi Minicab, Subaru Sambar, Suzuki Carry
 
As with many things in Europe and Asia, the illusion of delicacy and proper manners always seems to attract tourists. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini trucks are factory redesigns of light automobiles with monochrome bodies. Such specialized designs with such great frames such as the Italian Piaggio, based upon Japanese designs. In this case it was based upon Japanese designs made by Daihatsu. These are very popular for use in "old town" sections of European cities, which often have very narrow alleyways. Despite whatever name they are called, these very light trucks serve a wide variety of purposes.
 
Yet, in Japan they are regulated under the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break in taxes for buying a small and less-powerful vehicle. Currently, the engine is limited to 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles began being used as on-road utility vehicles in Japan. Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini trucks were manufactured for on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States. Import regulations require that the mini trucks have a 25 mph (40km/h) speed governor. Again, this is because they are low speed vehicles.
 
However, these vehicles have found numerous amounts of ways to help the community. They invest money into the government, universities, amusement parks, and replacements for golf cars. They have some major Japanese mini truck manufacturarers as well as brands such as: Daihatsu Hijet, Honda Acty, Mazda Scrum, Mitsubishit Minicab, Subaru Sambar, and Suzuki Carry.

Question During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture. Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they became negatively stigmatized. As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers were frequently portrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.

Question In some states, a business route is designated by adding the letter "B" after the number instead of placing a "Business" sign above it. For example, Arkansas signs US business route 71 as "US 71B". On some route shields and road signs, the word "business" is shortened to just "BUS". This abbreviation is rare and usually avoided to prevent confusion with bus routes.

Question

In the United States, commercial truck classification is fixed by each vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). There are 8 commercial truck classes, ranging between 1 and 8. Trucks are also classified in a more broad way by the DOT's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The FHWA groups them together, determining classes 1-3 as light duty, 4-6 as medium duty, and 7-8 as heavy duty. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has its own separate system of emission classifications for commercial trucks. Similarly, the United States Census Bureau had assigned classifications of its own in its now-discontinued Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey (TIUS, formerly known as the Truck Inventory and Use Survey).

Question The United States Department of Transportation has become a fundamental necessity in the moving industry. It is the pinnacle of the industry, creating and enforcing regulations for the sake of safety for both businesses and consumers alike. However, it is notable to appreciate the history of such a powerful department. The functions currently performed by the DOT were once enforced by the Secretary of Commerce for Transportation. In 1965, Najeeb Halaby, administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), had an excellent suggestion. He spoke to the current President Lyndon B. Johnson, advising that transportation be elevated to a cabinet level position. He continued, suggesting that the FAA be folded or merged, if you will, into the DOT. Clearly, the President took to Halaby's fresh ideas regarding transportation, thus putting the DOT into place.

Question

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.

Question A properly fitted close-coupled trailer is fitted with a rigid tow bar. It then projects from its front and hooks onto a hook on the tractor. It is important to not that it does not pivot as a draw bar does.

Question

Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) are fundamental to the FMCSA's compliance program. The purpose of the CSA program is to oversee and focus on motor carriers' safety performance. To enforce such safety regulations, the CSA conducts roadside inspections and crash investigations. The program issues violations when instances of noncompliance with CSA safety regulations are exposed.
 
Unfortunately, the CSA's number of safety investigation teams and state law enforcement partners are rather small in comparison to the millions of CMV companies and commercial driver license (CDL) holders. A key factor in the CSA program is known as the Safety Measurement System (SMS). This system relies on data analysis to identify unsafe companies to arrange them for safety interventions. SMS is incredibly helpful to CSA in finding and holding companies accountable for safety performance.  

Question 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.

Question The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is a division of the USDOT specializing in highway transportation. The agency's major influential activities are generally separated into two different "programs". The first is the Federal-aid Highway Program. This provides financial aid to support the construction, maintenance, and operation of the U.S. highway network. The second program, the Federal Lands Highway Program, shares a similar name with different intentions. The purpose of this program is to improve transportation involving Federal and Tribal lands. They also focus on preserving "national treasures" for the historic and beatific enjoyment for all.


Question

A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle. Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road". This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international. Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name. However in Canada, the term is most commonly used, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.
 
On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead. For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop". This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannot be determined around the entire loop.

Question

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.

Question The feature film "Joy Ride" premiered in 2001, portraying the story of two college-age brothers who by a CB radio while taking a road trip. Although the plot seems lighthearted, it takes a quick turn after one of the brothers attempts a prank on an unknown truck driver. They soon find out the dangerous intentions of this killer driver, who is set on getting his revenge. Seven years later in 2008 the sequel "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead" came out on DVD only. Similar to its predecessor, the plot involves another murdering truck driver, a.k.a "Rusty Nail". He essentially plays psychological mind games with a young couple on a road trip.

Question

The rise of technological development gave rise to the modern trucking industry. There a few factors supporting this spike in the industry such as the advent of the gas-powered internal combustion engine. Improvement in transmissions is yet another source, just like the move away from chain drives to gear drives. And of course the development of the tractor/semi-trailer combination.
 
The first state weight limits for trucks were determined and put in place in 1913. Only four states limited truck weights, from a low of 18,000 pounds (8,200 kg) in Maine to a high of 28,000 pounds (13,000 kg) in Massachusetts. The intention of these laws was to protect the earth and gravel-surfaced roads. In this case, particular damages due to the iron and solid rubber wheels of early trucks. By 1914 there were almost 100,000 trucks on America's roads. As a result of solid tires, poor rural roads, and a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour (24km/h) continued to limit the use of these trucks to mostly urban areas.

Question Smoke and the Bandit was released in 1977, becoming the third-highest grossing movie. Following only behind Star Wars Episode IV and Close Encounter of the Third Kind, all three movies making an impact on popular culture. Conveniently, during that same year, CB Bears debuted as well. The Saturday morning cartoon features mystery-solving bears who communicate by CB radio. As the 1970's decade began to end and the 80's broke through, the trucking phenomenon had wade. With the rise of cellular phone technology, the CB radio was no longer popular with passenger vehicles, but, truck drivers still use it today.

Question Ultra light trucks are very easy to spot or acknowledge if you are paying attention. They are often produced variously such as golf cars, for instance, it has internal combustion or a battery electric drive. They usually for off-highway use on estates, golf courses, parks, in stores, or even someone in an electric wheelchair. While clearly not suitable for highway usage, some variations may be licensed as slow speed vehicles. The catch is that they may on operate on streets, usually a body variation of a neighborhood electric vehicle. A few manufacturers produce specialized chassis for this type of vehicle. Meanwhile, Zap Motors markets a version of the xebra electric tricycle. Which, believe it or not, is able to attain a general license in the United States as a motorcycle.

Question Heavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).
