From time to time, in the planning and execution of your move, you will come across terms and acronyms that we use or of which the industry uses. Although not all the jargon can be listed, the following are some of the most likely terms you might come across:

Please note that these terms and abbreviations below most legitimate licensed movers should know and is a good way (for you the customer) to determine if your going to be getting a good relocation specialist in the Rochester Rochester Hills area.

  • Access – Basically, how accessible is the property? The room to park a vehicle, the distance from vehicle to front door, the availability of lifts, how many floors the building has, and so on, all have an influence on access.
  • Agent - Usually another moving company appointed to act as a partner in your move. The most likely situation is that your mover will appoint someone at destination to receive your shipment, clear it through Customs and arrange final delivery. The agent’s services will be included in your quotation.
  • Bill of Lading - This is your contract with the carrier. It is your receipt for your goods and the contract for their transportation. Your signature on this document acknowledges that your goods have been loaded on the moving van and "released to the carrier".
  • Binding Quote - A guaranteed price based on the inventory. For Example: If we estimate your weight and your load weighs in heavier than what we estimated, than the overage weight/cost will be on us. You will not have to pay one cent more! But beware that this will only be for only the items that were previously estimated. If you should add more items/boxes before the movers arrive, or if additional services are requested or required at either origin or destination (such as a "shuttle" to or from a location to which a full-size van cannot operate directly or a "long carry" from the street to residence), the total cost will increase. Binding estimates are valid for the time period specified, up to 60 days.
    If you add items to be moved or require additional services, such as packing, between the time of the estimate and the time of your move, there will be additional charges. An addendum specifying these additional charges will be prepared for your signature. If you are interested in obtaining a binding estimate, please let us know.

  • Inventory List – This document lists all the goods that are either packed or moved in a shipment and has 4 main purposes: It is used to check the goods at all stages of handling; as a receipt, therefore the importance for the customer of signing for agreement when the goods are collected and unpacked; as an attachment to the insurance certificate as it is an evidence that the goods were shipped and their conditions at the time of packing, or moved, and/or for customs clearance as proof of the goods which are being imported.
