Here we'll go over some of the important industry terms that are great points for any potential customer, mover or company owner to have a solid understanding of.
(note; If you're a customer, make sure you understand these terms before you go ahead and sign binding contracts)
Additional services — such as packing, unpacking, and appliance servicing — may incur additional charges if they are required by your request or by building rules.
Furniture Dolly - A customised dolly with straps to help load and unload heavy goods like appliances and enormous furniture is known as an appliance dolly.
Bill of Lading — the contract between the mover and the client that also serves as a receipt (it's critical to read the bill of lading carefully before signing it.)
Full-replacement value coverage – the amount of money needed to replace a damaged item, regardless of its age. (Most valuation plans demand coverage of the entire cargo, not just particular articles.) Request terms from your carrier.)
Inventory - A complete record of your household products that shows the number and condition of each item.
Interprovincial - Any move that crosses a provincial boundary, regardless of distance, is considered an interprovincial move.
Intraprovincial - A move within a province boundary is known as an intraprovincial move.
