Understanding Moving Tariffs
So what actually is a moving tariff? A moving tariff not only includes your carrier’s rate but all of the rules and expenses of each moving shipment. This moving tariff essentially ensures that the moving company has the right to apply additional charges if additional services (outside of agreed-upon services) are performed. Note that moving tariff charges are based on the specific weight of transported items and can vary from state to state.
What Are Georgia Intrastate Moving Tariffs?
Moving tariffs in Georgia apply to local movers, not cross-country long distance movers. These Georgia intrastate moving tariffs refer to intrastate traffic and the movement of household goods within the state of Georgia.
Georgia intrastate moving tariffs include:
- All traffic needs to originate within the state of Georgia.
- The destination (address of destination) needs to be within the state of Georgia.
- The entire transportation of a move must remain within the state of Georgia.
Georgia Moving Laws & Tariff Changes
- Georgia Moving Laws: Did you know that it is against the law to move at night in most states? This applies to the state of Georgia as well. The consequences of moving at night include heavy fines and penalties.
- Georgia Tariff Changes (2018): In March 2018 changes took place to establish a new maximum rate tariff. These new tariff rates apply to all Georgia intrastate household good movers, indicating:
- There is an increase of 15% on maximum allowable rates.
- There is a change in default valuation, applying to items moved by depreciated value (up to a maximum amount of value). This rate is $0.60 per pound per article.
