What Is a US Moving Tariff?

A moving tariff serves as a US federal government regulation. It applies to all moving companies in the US. A tariff lists all charges that each mover can apply toward a customer. Those charges (and each estimate) refer to any type of service. Moving organizations must make customers aware of each tariff. This is a stipulation by law depending on if you hold an MC number. Sections of a tariff go inside each bill of lading. Please scroll down to learn more about the bill of lading.

The New Jersey Moving Tariff & Estimate

All New Jersey movers have to file moving tariff documents with the state government. These documents feature rules and rate charges. Keep in mind that each tariff stays open to public inspection. Customers can examine their tariffs at two separate locations. The first location is the moving company’s office. The second location is The Office of Consumer Protection. Of course, US moving customers have to pay each charge that a tariff lists. But there are two exceptions to this concept. First, the mover can charge less than what's written on the tariff. Second, the mover can charge more than what the tariff states. This takes place if the customer has a prior agreement to do a binding estimate.

New Jersey movers cannot impose any charge if the moving tariff does not list the charge. In fact, this goes for movers all across the US. This concept applies to packing and unpacking. It also correlates to providing packing materials. Even imposing charges for heavy/large items is a US tariff regulation. For example, a mover cannot charge more to move a piano unless there is a prior agreement.

The NJ Bill of Lading

Say that a NJ customer’s move has gotten completed to a house or apartment. The customer must now secure a bill of lading. The bill of lading should get signed by both the customer and mover. The bill should display the following information: 

1. The NJ mover’s name. 

2. The NJ mover’s address. 

3. The NJ mover’s license number. 

4. The NJ mover’s phone number. 

5. The location where the goods moved from. 

6. The location where the goods moved to. 

7. The loading date of the move. 

8. The delivery date of the move. 

Each bill of lading lists all actual charges and rates that customers pay for. The actual charges correspond to every service that the mover provides. This applies to all bills of lading in the US.

What Is New Jersey's Move Over Law?

Say that a New Jersey mover surveys a customer’s goods. That NJ mover must provide a written estimate of moving costs within 24 hours before the move. This is an official rule by New Jersey law. It has even gotten upheld in US courts. The non-binding estimate costs cannot exceed a New Jersey mover’s tariff rates. Those exact tariff rates must get filed through the US Office of Consumer Protection. Arbitration program is required as well

Intrastate Estimates for Movers: Moving Within New Jersey

New Jersey movers adhere to New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs regulations. Otherwise, movers can lose their licensing. The regulations/rules protect customers from dealing with unethical companies in New Jersey. One of the most important regulations is that of in-person site surveys. The surveys are crucial for written estimates. Rough estimates over the phone or through the internet often lack accuracy. New Jersey movers should see all items in every room before they’re moved. Plus, it’s best to view all loading areas, such as stairs. This will make the estimates more accurate.

Every New Jersey mover bases cost on the weight/hourly rates within a tariff. Extra charges/packing charges also get featured in moving tariffs. Many NJ movers opt to offer binding estimates for direct moves. But pricing can change if extra services must take place. Pricing also changes when there are delays on moving days. That is why non-binding estimates are sometimes more practical. The non-binding estimate works well for customers who feel undecided about packing. Many customers underestimate how much effort packing and moving takes.

What’s the Average Cost To Move From One State to Another? (A Move Outside of New Jersey)

The average long-distance move costs customers about $4,3000. This is according to the AMSA: American Moving and Storage Association. This figure's based on an average distance of 1,225 miles. It’s also based on an average weight of 7,400 pounds. 

Interstate Estimates for Movers: Moving Outside of New Jersey 

There are many regulations to adhere to when New Jersey movers cross state lines. First of all, the movers have to have current MC numbers. The MC numbers get provided by the FMCSA registration: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. NJ movers within 50 miles of a customer’s home must arrive and provide a written estimate. It is not recommended that customers use the services of brokers. Why? Because brokers do not own trucks and are not responsible for damages and delays. Each NJ interstate estimate must feature the following information:

1. The name of the NJ mover. 

2. The address of the NJ mover. 

3. The NJ mover’s license number. 

4. All required advisories. 

New Jersey movers base their interstate estimates on mileage and cubic feet/weight. The estimates refer to rates listed in each tariff. Sometimes movers must also charge for extra services that take place. The Actual weight for a move is the same as any moving company. But cubic feet measurements sometimes vary. The lowest interstate estimate doesn’t always lead to the lowest final cost. That is a concept that New Jersey customers should keep in mind.

Did You Know

Question Beginning the the early 20th century, the 1920's saw several major advancements. There was improvement in rural roads which was significant for the time. The diesel engine, which are 25-40% more efficient than gas engines were also a major breakthrough. We also saw the standardization of truck and trailer sizes along with fifth wheel coupling systems. Additionally power assisted brakes and steering developed. By 1933, all states had some form of varying truck weight regulation.


The intention of a trailer coupler is to secure the trailer to the towing vehicle. It is an important piece, as the trailer couple attaches to the trailer ball. This then forms a ball and socket connection. It allows for relative movement between the towing vehicle and trailer while towing over uneven road surfaces. The trailer ball should be mounted to the rear bumper or to a drawbar, which may be removable. The drawbar secures to the trailer hitch by inserting it into the hitch receiver and pinning it.
The three most common types of couplers used are straight couplers, A-frame couplers, and adjustable couplers. Another option is bumper-pull hitches in which case draw bars can exert a large amount of leverage on the tow vehicle. This makes it harder to recover from a swerving situation (thus it may not be the safest choice depending on your trip).

Question A moving company, removalist, or van line are all companies that help people as well as other businesses to move their good from one place to another. With many inclusive services for relocation like packing, loading, moving, unloading, unpacking and arranging of items can all be taken care of for you. Some services may include cleaning the place and have warehousing facilities.

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 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 In 1971, author and director Steven Spielberg, debuted his first feature length film. His made-for-tv film, Duel, portrayed a truck driver as an anonymous stalker. Apparently there seems to be a trend in the 70's to negatively stigmatize truck drivers.

Question Trucks of the era mostly used two-cylinder engines and had a carrying capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 kilograms (3,300 to 4,400 lb). In 1904, 700 heavy trucks were built in the United States, 1000 in 1907, 6000 in 1910, and 25000 in 1914. A Benz truck modified by Netphener company (1895)

Question 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.

Question A business route (occasionally city route) in the United States and Canada is a short special route connected to a parent numbered highway at its beginning, then routed through the central business district of a nearby city or town, and finally reconnecting with the same parent numbered highway again at its end.

Question In the United States, the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 established minimum requirements that must be met when a state issues a commercial driver's license CDL. It specifies the following types of license: - Class A CDL drivers. Drive vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater, or any combination of vehicles weighing 26,001 pounds or greater when towing a trailer weighing more than 10,000 pounds. Transports quantities of hazardous materials that require warning placards under Department of Public Safety regulations. - Class A Driver License permits. Is a step in preparation for Class A drivers to become a Commercial Driver. - Class B CDL driver. Class B is designed to transport 16 or more passengers (including driver) or more than 8 passengers (including the driver) for compensation. This includes, but is not limited to, tow trucks, tractor trailers, and buses.


In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

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.


The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

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 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 Unfortunately for the trucking industry, their image began to crumble during the latter part of the 20th century. As a result, their reputation suffered. More recently truckers have been portrayed as chauvinists or even worse, serial killers. The portrayals of semi-trailer trucks have focused on stories of the trucks becoming self-aware. Generally, this is with some extraterrestrial help.

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 industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

Question In today's society, there are rules and regulations everywhere you go, the same goes for commercial vehicles. The federal government has strict regulations that must be met, such as how many hours a driver may be on the clock. For example, 11 hours driving /14 hours on-duty followed by 10 hours off, with a max of 70 hours/8 days or 60 hours/7 days. They can also set rules deciding how much rest and sleep time is required, however, these are only a couple of regulations set. Any violations are often subject to harsh penalties. In some cases, there are instruments to track each driver's hours, which are becoming more necessary.

Question In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items to be moved and the distance it will go. Cost is also based on how quickly the items are to be moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
