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 $9,3000.  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 & National Movers Association Membership. 

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.

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.

In many countries, driving a truck requires a special driving license. The requirements and limitations vary with each different jurisdiction.

In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

In 2009, the book 'Trucking Country: The Road to America's Walmart Economy' debuted, written by author Shane Hamilton. This novel explores the interesting history of trucking and connects certain developments. Particularly how such development in the trucking industry have helped the so-called big-box stored. Examples of these would include Walmart or Target, they dominate the retail sector of the U.S. economy. Yet, Hamilton connects historical and present-day evidence that connects such correlations.

“The association of truckers with cowboys and related myths was perhaps most obvious during the urban-cowboy craze of the late 1970s, a period that saw middle-class urbanites wearing cowboy clothing and patronizing simulated cowboy nightclubs. During this time, at least four truck driver movies appeared, CB radio became popular, and truck drivers were prominently featured in all forms of popular media.” — Lawrence J. Ouellet

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.

In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.

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.

Without strong land use controls, buildings are too often built in town right along a bypass. This results with the conversion of it into an ordinary town road, resulting in the bypass becoming as congested as the local streets. On the contrary, a bypass is intended to avoid such local street congestion. Gas stations, shopping centers, along with various other businesses are often built alongside them. They are built in hopes of easing accessibility, while home are ideally avoided for noise reasons.

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.

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.

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 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.

In 1986 Stephen King released horror film "Maximum Overdrive", a campy kind of story. It is really about trucks that become animated due to radiation emanating from a passing comet. Oddly enough, the trucks force humans to pump their diesel fuel. Their leader is portrayed as resembling Spider-Man's antagonist Green Goblin.

Although there are exceptions, city routes are interestingly most often found in the Midwestern area of the United States. Though they essentially serve the same purpose as business routes, they are different. They feature "CITY" signs as opposed to "BUSINESS" signs above or below route shields. Many of these city routes are becoming irrelevant for today's transportation. Due to this, they are being eliminated in favor of the business route designation.

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!"

The decade of the 70's in the United States was a memorable one, especially for the notion of truck driving. This seemed to dramatically increase popularity among trucker culture. Throughout this era, and even in today's society, truck drivers are romanticized as modern-day cowboys and outlaws. These stereotypes were due to their use of Citizens Band (CB) radios to swap information with other drivers. Information regarding the locations of police officers and transportation authorities. The general public took an interest in the truckers 'way of life' as well. Both drivers and the public took interest in plaid shirts, trucker hats, CB radios, and CB slang.

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.

Some trailers can be towed by an accessible pickup truck or van, which generally need no special permit beyond a regular license. Such examples would be enclosed toy trailers and motorcycle trailers. Specialized trailers like an open-air motorcycle trailer and bicycle trailers are accessible. Some trailers are much more accessible to small automobiles, as are some simple trailers pulled by a drawbar and riding on a single set of axles. Other trailers also have a variety, such as a utility trailer, travel trailers or campers, etc. to allow for varying sizes of tow vehicles.
