World moving services can move houses or businesses locally, overseas transfers, long-distance, international, or boat to auto transports. With so much at stake, choosing world moving services that are bonded, licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation, and with lots of experience in residential moving and corporate relocations are a necessity as every year, over a quarter of the world’s population moves.
High-quality world moving services will save money with customized decisions while coordinating any scheduling or third party services. Things like the inspection of tariffs of the shipment due to Federal laws, requiring the carriers’ tariffs being made as part of the bill of lading, and with inspection at the carrier’s facilities will be taken care of at no stress of the consumer. All of these things are important, but knowing how much their services will be charged needs to be first and foremost while maintaining their quality of service.
The assumption is made that world moving services are required to give moving estimates, but they do not as there are two types of estimates—binding and non-binding. The binding estimates cannot charge you more than the shipment and all its services are worth in the original estimate. But the mover may charge for the binding estimate process, with any extra services added at a later date (such as shuttle charges, elevator charges, or extra stair carry charges) may be required full payment immediately. Binding estimates are required to be paid by cash, certified check, traveler’s check, or a bank check that is drawn on the bank itself and signed by the officer of the bank.
On the other hand with a non-binding estimate of the approximate cost of the world moving services, the mover is not permitted to charge for their estimate. The purpose of this estimate is only to give the person moving the general estimated cost of what the move will cost and is not considered a binding contract. Unfortunately, the end cost may cost more than the original non-binding estimate.
Remember that there are three important documents to have on hand when world moving services are transporting your belongings to the new home or business: a written estimate, regardless which type; a bill of lading, which is the legal contract that defines which type of services the carrier is providing; and an inventory of the items being moved. Make sure these papers are provided by the mover before the move begins. If enough time has been provided and the organization has been done correctly, none of this should be a problem.
