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.

A boat trailer is a trailer designed to launch, retrieve, carry and sometimes store boats.

A commercial driver's license (CDL) is a driver's license required to operate large or heavy vehicles.

With the partial deregulation of the trucking industry in 1980 by the Motor Carrier Act, trucking companies increased. The workforce was drastically de-unionized. As a result, drivers received a lower pay overall. Losing its spotlight in the popular culture, trucking had become less intimate as some unspoken competition broke out. However, the deregulation only increased the competition and productivity with the trucking industry as a whole. This was beneficial to the America consumer by reducing costs. In 1982 the Surface Transportation Assistance Act established a federal minimum truck weight limits. Thus, trucks were finally standardized truck size and weight limits across the country. This was also put in to place so that across country traffic on the Interstate Highways resolved the issue of the 'barrier states'.

Invented in 1890, the diesel engine was not an invention that became well known in popular culture. It was not until the 1930's for the United States to express further interest for diesel engines to be accepted. Gasoline engines were still in use on heavy trucks in the 1970's, while in Europe they had been entirely replaced two decades earlier.

Business routes always have the same number as the routes they parallel. For example, U.S. 1 Business is a loop off, and paralleling, U.S. Route 1, and Interstate 40 Business is a loop off, and paralleling, Interstate 40.

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.

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.

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.  

Advocation for better transportation began historically in the late 1870s of the United States. This is when the Good Roads Movement first occurred, lasting all the way throughout the 1920s. Bicyclist leaders advocated for improved roads. Their acts led to the turning of local agitation into the national political movement it became.

The definition of business logistics can be difficult to understand. Logistics can be simply put as a means of management that plans, implements, and controls the efficiency of the business. The notion of business logistics incorporates all sectors of the industry. It is used as a means to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains, and resultant efficiency.

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.

In the moving industry, transportation logistics management is incredibly important. Essentially, it is the management that implements and controls efficiency, the flow of storage of goods, as well as services. This includes related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption to meet customer's specifications. Logistics is quite complex but can be modeled, analyzed, visualized, and optimized by simulation software. Generally, the goal of transportation logistics management is to reduce or cut the use of such resources. A professional working in the field of moving logistics management is called a logistician.

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.

The USDOT (USDOT or DOT) is considered a federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government. Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point. The DOT was officially established by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department. The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially this states how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc. It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation. 

Throughout the United States, bypass routes are a special type of route most commonly used on an alternative routing of a highway around a town. Specifically when the main route of the highway goes through the town. Originally, these routes were designated as "truck routes" as a means to divert trucking traffic away from towns. However, this name was later changed by AASHTO in 1959 to what we now call a "bypass". Many "truck routes" continue to remain regardless that the mainline of the highway prohibits trucks.

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.

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.

1941 was a tough era to live through. Yet, President Roosevelt appointed a special committee to explore the idea of a "national inter-regional highway" system. Unfortunately, the committee's progress came to a halt with the rise of the World War II. After the war was over, the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1944 authorized the designation of what are not termed 'Interstate Highways'. However, he did not include any funding program to build such highways. With limited resources came limited progress until President Dwight D. Eisenhower came along in 1954. He renewed interest in the 1954 plan. Although, this began and long and bitter debate between various interests. Generally, the opposing sides were considering where such funding would come from such as rail, truck, tire, oil, and farm groups. All who would overpay for the new highways and how.
