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 1895 Karl Benz designed and built the first truck in history by using the internal combustion engine. Later that year some of Benz's trucks gave into modernization and went on to become the first bus by the Netphener. This would be the first motor bus company in history. Hardly a year later, in 1986, another internal combustion engine truck was built by a man named Gottlieb Daimler. As people began to catch on, other companies, such as Peugeot, Renault, and Bussing, also built their own versions. In 1899, the first truck in the United States was built by Autocar and was available with two optional horsepower motors, 5 or 8.

Question Receiving nation attention during the 1960's and 70's, songs and movies about truck driving were major hits. Finding solidarity, truck drivers participated in widespread strikes. Truck drivers from all over opposed the rising cost of fuel. Not to mention this is during the energy crises of 1873 and 1979. In 1980 the Motor Carrier Act drastically deregulated the trucking industry. Since then trucking has come to dominate the freight industry in the latter part of the 20th century. This coincided with what are now known as 'big-box' stores such as Target or Wal-Mart.

Question The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

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 Another film released in 1975, White Line Fever, also involved truck drivers. It tells the story of a Vietnam War veteran who returns home to take over his father's trucking business. But, he soon finds that corrupt shippers are trying to force him to carry illegal contraband. While endorsing another negative connotation towards the trucking industry, it does portray truck drivers with a certain wanderlust.

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 Many modern trucks are powered by diesel engines, although small to medium size trucks with gas engines exist in the United States. The European Union rules that vehicles with a gross combination of mass up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lb) are also known as light commercial vehicles. Any vehicles exceeding that weight are known as large goods vehicles.

Question 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.

Question A moving scam is a scam by a moving company in which the company provides an estimate, loads the goods, then states a much higher price to deliver the goods, effectively holding the goods as lien but does this without do a change of order or revised estimate.

Question The basics of all trucks are not difficult, as they share common construction. They are generally made of chassis, a cab, an area for placing cargo or equipment, axles, suspension, road wheels, and engine and a drive train. Pneumatic, hydraulic, water, and electrical systems may also be present. Many also tow one or more trailers or semi-trailers, which also vary in multiple ways but are similar as well.

Question

The year of 1977 marked the release of the infamous Smokey and the Bandit. It went on to be the third highest grossing film that year, following tough competitors like Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Burt Reynolds plays the protagonist, or "The Bandit", who escorts "The Snowman" in order to deliver bootleg beer. Reynolds once stated he envisioned trucking as a "hedonistic joyride entirely devoid from economic reality"
 
Another action film in 1977 also focused on truck drivers, as was the trend it seems. Breaker! Breaker! starring infamous Chuck Norris also focused on truck drivers. They were also displaying movie posters with the catch phrase "... he's got a CB radio and a hundred friends who just might get mad!"

Question With the onset of trucking culture, truck drivers often became portrayed as protagonists in popular media. Author Shane Hamilton, who wrote "Trucking Country: The Road to America's Wal-Mart Economy", focuses on truck driving. He explores the history of trucking and while connecting it development in the trucking industry. It is important to note, as Hamilton discusses the trucking industry and how it helps the so-called big-box stores dominate the U.S. marketplace. Hamilton certainly takes an interesting perspective historically speaking.

Question The Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 established a federal maximum gross vehicle weight of 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg). It also introduced a sliding scale of truck weight-to-length ratios based on the bridge formula. Although, they did not establish a federal minimum weight limit. By failing to establish a federal regulation, six contiguous in the Mississippi Valley rebelled. Becoming known as the "barrier state", they refused to increase their Interstate weight limits to 80,000 pounds. Due to this, the trucking industry faced a barrier to efficient cross-country interstate commerce.

Question 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.

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 Light trucks are classified this way because they are car-sized, yet in the U.S. they can be no more than 6,300 kg (13,900 lb). These are used by not only used by individuals but also businesses as well. In the UK they may not weigh more than 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) and are authorized to drive with a driving license for cars. Pickup trucks, popular in North America, are most seen in North America and some regions of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Although Europe doesn't seem to follow this trend, where the size of the commercial vehicle is most often made as vans.

Question With the ending of World War I, several developments were made to enhance trucks. Such an example would be by putting pneumatic tires replaced the previously common full rubber versions. These advancements continued, including electric starters, power brakes, 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines. Closed cabs and electric lighting followed. The modern semi-trailer truck also debuted. Additionally, touring car builders such as Ford and Renault entered the heavy truck market.
