Americans move for a variety of reasons. According to the 2017 US Census report people moved because of four main reasons. The percentages were broken down as follows:
- Employment and Career Progression at 18.5%
- Family related moves at 27.9%
- Housing related moves at 43%
- Other reasons at 10.6%
At A-1 Auto Transport Inc we supported a great percentage of the above with our moving services and successfully settled them in.
Common Moving Terms
As a preferred mover, we help our customers understand all the details of their move and that is why we would like to share with you some of the common terms in moving and how they are applied.
- Accessorial Services: These are additional value-add activities that someone moving requests from the moving company. Most of these services incur extra charges as they speed up and increase the efficiency of your move. Some of these services include: rigging, disassembly and reassembly and cleaning.
- Appliance Servicing: This applies when your mover helps you to prepare your electrical machines for shipping.
- Bulky Item: This includes all extra ordinarily heavy or large equipment such as pool tables.
- Cash On Delivery: Payment which should be given to the mover before they unload your property from their trucks.
- Claim: This is normally a statement that helps you get refunded for damage or loss to your property while in the custody of the movers.
- Binding Estimate: This is an agreement between the mover and the shipper that captures the most accurate total cost of the move based on the weight of the items in the moving list and any additional but necessary services.
- Non-binding Estimate: This is an agreement between the shipper and the mover but which only covers the estimated weight of the move and the accessory services. The final cost of the move is then calculated and based on the actual weight of the moved items and the services which have been provided.
- Valuation: This is the monetary value of the shipment.
