Your mover is required to provide you with a moving contract also known as bill of lading. The bill of lading serves as the receipt for the goods and the contract with mover for transportation. As a general rule, bill of lading is signed by you at the time of pick up, prior to movers starting to load the shipment.
The bill of lading is a key document as it contains the essential terms and conditions of the agreement between you and your mover.
The bill of lading includes the valuation section that indicates a "released value" of the items being transported, that in turn establishes mover's liability for your goods in the event of a loss or damage.
The bill of lading serves to identify the mover and specifies when the transportation is to be performed. It also specifies the terms and conditions for payment of the charges and the maximum amount required to be paid at the time of delivery for shipments moving under non-binding estimates. The bill of lading that is presented to customers, particularly, in case of non-binding estimates, will only be a partially complete copy of the bill of lading when truck leaves the residence at origin. The partially complete bill of lading must contain relevant shipment information - except the actual shipment weight that will be determined after the shipment has been weighed and any other information necessary to determine the final chafges for all services that mover will perform for local or a long distance relocation.
