New York State Tariff Household Goods 

Are you moving within the state of New York? If so, below are some important tips that will help you out. Keep the tips in mind when selecting a moving service. It a requirement for all carriers in the state of New York to have an active Household Goods moving Tariff. This must be provided to the State department of transportation for the State of New York. At New York Tariff are documents that correlate pricing and laws set out by NYDOT.

New York State Moving Consumers Should Do the Following

-Put a lot of thought into which mover you choose.

Your carrier should have proper licensing. That licensing should get issued by the Commissioner of Transportation. Say that you need to verify licensing. You have two options.

1. You can send an email.
2. You can call 518-457-6512.

Make sure that you provide the mover’s exact name.

If you can, try to also provide the NYDOT number.

-Use no fewer than 3 moving estimates. Each mover should provide a physical inspection of your goods within your household. 

-Ask each mover to give you a very important booklet. The booklet's called the "Summary of Information.” It explains what a shipper’s (customer’s) rights are.

-Ensure that your mover provides you with the Order for Service. This needs to take place before any goods get moved. The Order for Service will have a specific dollar amount. The amount applies to how much money a customer will have to pay on the day of delivery. This is so a moving company can deliver all goods to the destination.

-Take your time when reading all moving-related documents. Read everything word-for-word before you provide a signature.

-Keep a copy of every document that you have signed in a safe place.

-Create an inventory that lists all household goods that will get moved. Write down the condition of each piece of furniture. Also, write down the estimated number of boxes getting moved.

-Take your time to recognize the liability that applies toward your mover. All movers should explain their official liability policies. They should also tell you how you can buy extra coverage.

-Put thought into the scheduled states for departure and arrival. You want to have some flexibility in case there are delays.

-Provide your movers with phone numbers, emails, and addresses. This is so movers can reach you at any time while en route. Plus, they can also reach you once they arrive at the destination.

-Say that there is loss and/or damage. This means that you need to inform the mover that you will file a written claim.

New York State Moving Consumers Should Avoid Taking the Following Actions


-Assume that any mover’s written/phone estimate is the true cost of a move.

-Use a mover that does not have proper licensing.

-Assume that a mover will use free packing supplies on your behalf. Packing supplies include boxes, barrels, and cartons. (But say that you hire a mover that provides packing services. This means that it’s the mover’s responsibility to provide “tools of the trade.” Packing services refer to tape, bubble wrap, and other packing materials. These materials can get included in a mover’s packing fee.)

-Assume that a mover will give you any service without a fee. Common moving services include clean-up processes, disconnecting/reinstalling fixtures, appliances, and more.

-Fail to have the exact dollar amount for the Order for Service on the day of delivery. You should have your money in the form of a certified check or cash.

-Sign any moving document that you haven’t read.

New York State Tariff Moving Complaints

-Intrastate Moves That Happen Inside New York State

Filing a tariff-related complaint against a mover within New York State is simple. All complaints should get directed toward the New York State Department of Transportation. (This focuses on intrastate moves that take place within the state of New York.) The Department of Transportation is in charge of licensing.

They provide licenses to all moving organizations that function inside New York State. Say that you have moved within New York State in the last few weeks. But there was some sort of problem with the move. That’s when you need to file a complaint with the New York State Department of Transportation.

That department will then assess the criteria for your move. But do keep the following notion in mind. The NYDOT only regulates moves that begin and end within the state of New York.

-Interstate Moves That Cross State Lines

Say that your shipment crosses state lines the carrier should have an active MC Number. This means that the jurisdiction of the move does not apply to the NYDOT. Instead, the Federal government must handle the jurisdiction. This applies even if the move began or ended within New York State. So, what should you do in this situation? You have to get in touch with the USDOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You can reach FMCSA by calling 888-368-7238. More information about interstate moving is on the FMCSA official website.

Say that your move results in damage or loss. This means that you should let your mover know ASAP. But make sure that the notification is in writing. Movers have to respond to all written claims within thirty days. And they have to resolve claims in writing within one- hundred twenty days. There are three main types of resolutions.

1. Payment in full.
2. A claim denial.
3. A compromise settlement.

Do not despair if you're upset about a settlement involving damage/loss.

You can then go to Small Claims Court to attempt to get a resolution. The Department of Transportation does not make formal judgments about damage and loss. Instead, this issue is a civil matter. That’s why the resolution takes place in court. Say that a court provides you with a judgment. Your mover then has sixty days to pay the judgment.

DOT Moving Authority phone(702) 333-2430

Now, say that you do not get the payment you're entitled to. That’s when the NY DOT will help you collect the judgment. 

Say that your moving complaint does not regard damage or loss. The New York State DOT can still attempt to help you. Here are the three most common complaints beyond damage or loss.

1. The moving company did not honor the contract.
2. The moving company did not give you the required paperwork to fill out.
3. The moving company took part in abnormal business practices.

When situations like these happen, you can file a complaint with the New York State DOT.

The first step is to download a Consumer Complaint form. Once you complete the form, you should mail it. The mailing address for the NY State DOT Office of Safety & Security Services is online. When you mail a complaint, include copies of paperwork and communication.

That communication applies between yourself and the mover. You will then receive a letter that informs you how the complaint will get handled. Do you have questions about the complaint process you file a claim against a movers Arbitration Program if they are also holding USDOT number which is a permanent certificate renewed yearly? You will need a National Moving Tariff if you hold a USDOT license.

New York State Tariff: Small Claims Court Information

Sometimes using a small claims court is best when dealing with New York State tariff issues. Say that there is damage or loss that takes place because of a move. This means you should let the moving company know ASAP. And that notification should get converted through writing. The moving company then has thirty days to recognize your claim through writing.

The company then has one-hundred-twenty days to get the claim settled. Say that you feel dissatisfied with the claim resolution. Or, say that you cannot resolve the dispute with the moving company. You can then attempt to find a resolution through the court system. Please contact our organization for more information about the Small claims court.

Although our company does not transport household goods, section 17 NYCRR Part 820, subsection C-2, required us to get the NYDOT. We called the Moving Authority company, and they very professionally gave us all the help we need in this regard.

Dillie Thields


To avoid New York state DOT fines, we had to update our New York Moving Tariff at once. Moving Authority took care of it very neatly. Recommended!

Griff Moor


We recently decided to expand our operations to the New York area, but apparently, the company name was already taken, and we did not know how to resolve this situation. We searched the internet and got in touch with Moving Authority, and they very quickly supported us with all the paperwork for the new name and the New York State tariff household goods.

The Motor Carrier Act, passed by Congress in 1935, replace the code of competition. The authorization the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) place was to regulate the trucking industry. Since then the ICC has been long abolished, however, it did quite a lot during its time. Based on the recommendations given by the ICC, Congress enacted the first hours of services regulation in 1938. This limited driving hours of truck and bus drivers. In 1941, the ICC reported that inconsistent weight limitation imposed by the states cause problems to effective interstate truck commerce.

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'.

"Six Day on the Road" was a trucker hit released in 1963 by country music singer Dave Dudley. Bill Malone is an author as well as a music historian. He notes the song "effectively captured both the boredom and the excitement, as well as the swaggering masculinity that often accompanied long distance trucking."

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.

In the United States, a commercial driver's license is required to drive any type of commercial vehicle weighing 26,001 lb (11,794 kg) or more. In 2006 the US trucking industry employed 1.8 million drivers of heavy trucks.

During the latter part of the 20th century, we saw a decline of the trucking culture. Coinciding with this decline was a decline of the image of truck drivers, as they became negatively stigmatized. As a result of such negativity, it makes sense that truck drivers were frequently portrayed as the "bad guy(s)" in movies.

A semi-trailer is almost exactly what it sounds like, it is a trailer without a front axle. Proportionally, its weight is supported by two factors. The weight falls upon a road tractor or by a detachable front axle assembly, known as a dolly. Generally, a semi-trailer is equipped with legs, known in the industry as "landing gear". This means it can be lowered to support it when it is uncoupled. In the United States, a trailer may not exceed a length of 57 ft (17.37 m) on interstate highways. However, it is possible to link two smaller trailers together to reach a length of 63 ft (19.20 m).

As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

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.

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.

The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle. Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road". This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international. Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name. However in Canada, the term is most commonly used, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.   On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead. For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop". This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannot be determined around the entire loop.

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.

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.

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.

The term 'trailer' is commonly used interchangeably with that of a travel trailer or mobile home. There are varieties of trailers and manufactures housing designed for human habitation. Such origins can be found historically with utility trailers built in a similar fashion to horse-drawn wagons. A trailer park is an area where mobile homes are designated for people to live in.   In the United States, trailers ranging in size from single-axle dollies to 6-axle, 13 ft 6 in (4,115 mm) high, 53 ft (16,154 mm) in long semi-trailers is common. Although, when towed as part of a tractor-trailer or "18-wheeler", carries a large percentage of the freight. Specifically, the freight that travels over land in North America.

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.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the most common government agency that is devoted to transportation in the United States. The DOT is the largest United States agency with the sole purpose of overseeing interstate travel and issue's USDOT Number filing to new carriers. The U.S., Canadian provinces, and many other local agencies have a similar organization in place. This way they can provide enforcement through DOT officers within their respective jurisdictions.
