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.

Question

The trucking industry has made a large historical impact since the early 20th century. It has affected the U.S. both politically as well as economically since the notion has begun. Previous to the invention of automobiles, most freight was moved by train or horse-drawn carriage. Trucks were first exclusively used by the military during World War I.
 
After the war, construction of paved roads increased. As a result, trucking began to achieve significant popularity by the 1930's. Soon after trucking became subject to various government regulation, such as the hours of service. During the later 1950's and 1960's, trucking accelerated due to the construction of the Interstate Highway System. The Interstate Highway System is an extensive network of freeways linking major cities cross country.

Question In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

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 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 40 million United States citizens have moved annually over the last decade. Of those people who have moved in the United States, 84.5% of them have moved within their own state, 12.5% have moved to another state, and 2.3% have moved to another country.

Question The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency within the United States Department of Transportation. The purpose of the FMCSA is to regulate safety within the trucking and moving industry in the United States. The FMCSA enforces safety precautions that reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses.

Question

Full truckload carriers normally deliver a semi-trailer to a shipper who will fill the trailer with freight for one destination. Once the trailer is filled, the driver returns to the shipper to collect the required paperwork. Upon receiving the paperwork the driver will then leave with the trailer containing freight. Next, the driver will proceed to the consignee and deliver the freight him or herself. At times, a driver will transfer the trailer to another driver who will drive the freight the rest of the way. Full Truckload service (FTL) transit times are generally restricted by the driver's availability. This is according to Hours of Service regulations and distance. It is typically accepted that Full Truckload carriers will transport freight at an average rate of 47 miles per hour. This includes traffic jams, queues at intersections, other factors that influence transit time.
 

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

As the American Interstate Highway System began to expand in the 1950's, the trucking industry began to take over a large market share. That is, a large share of the transportation of goods throughout the country. Before this era, trains had been relied on to transport the bulk of the goods cross country or state to state. The Interstate Highway System was influential as it allows for merchandise to travel door to door with ease. Since then, truckload carriers have taken advantage of the interstate system, especially when performing a long distance move. Typically, they bring the merchandise from one distribution center of the country to another part of the country. The increase in truckload freight transportation has reduced the time it takes to transport the goods. Whether the freight was manufactured or produced for the different areas internationally, the time it takes to transport goods has decreased dramatically.
 

Question

Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations.


FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

Question The word cargo is in reference to particular goods that are generally used for commercial gain. Cargo transportation is generally meant to mean by ship, boat, or plane. However, the term now applies to all types of freight, now including goods carried by train, van, or truck. This term is now used in the case of goods in the cold-chain, as perishable inventory is always cargo in transport towards its final homeEven when it is held in climate-controlled facilities, it is important to remember perishable goods or inventory have a short life.

Question The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.

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 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.

Question The most basic purpose of a trailer jack is to lift the trailer to a height that allows the trailer to hitch or unhitch to and from the towing vehicle. Trailer jacks may also be used for the leveling of the trailer during storage. To list a few common types of trailer jacks are A-frame jacks, swivel jacks, and drop-leg jacks. Other trailers, such as horse trailers, have a built-in jack at the tongue for this purpose.

Question The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) is a non-profit trade association. AMSA represents members of the professional moving industry primarily based in the United States. The association consists of approximately 4,000 members. They consist of van lines, their agents, independent movers, forwarders, and industry suppliers. However, AMSA does not represent the self-storage industry.

Question Driver's licensing has coincided throughout the European Union in order to for the complex rules to all member states. Driving a vehicle weighing more than 7.5 tons (16,535 lb) for commercial purposes requires a certain license. This specialist licence type varies depending on the use of the vehicle and number of seat. Licences first acquired after 1997, the weight was reduced to 3,500 kilograms (7,716 lb), not including trailers.

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).

Question There many reasons for moving, each one with a unique and specific reason as to why. Relocation services, employee relocation, or workforce mobility can create a range of processes. This process of transferring employees, their families, and/or entire departments of a business to a new location can be difficult. Like some types of employee benefits, these matters are dealt with by human resources specialists within a corporation.

Question Commercial trucks in the U.S. pay higher road taxes on a State level than the road vehicles and are subject to extensive regulation. This begs the question of why these trucks are paying more. I'll tell you. Just to name a few reasons, commercial truck pay higher road use taxes. They are much bigger and heavier than most other vehicles, resulting in more wear and tear on the roadways. They are also on the road for extended periods of time, which also affects the interstate as well as roads and passing through towns. Yet, rules on use taxes differ among jurisdictions.
