Additional Services – Services, such as packing, appliance servicing, unpacking, or stair carries, that
are needed due to either your request or building regulations and which may result in additional
charges. See Appliance.
Advanced Charges – Charges for services performed by a third party at your request. The charges for
these services are paid for by the mover and then added to the charges on your Bill of Lading. See Bill
Agent – A local moving company authorized to act on behalf of a larger national company.
Appliance – The cost of a complete disconnect of an appliance at the originating residence, and a
reconnect of the appliance at the new residence. Covered appliances include washers, dryers,
dishwashers, and refrigerators. Some movers include a surcharge for this service while others simply
charge the amount of time the actual service takes. If a particular mover does not perform this service
or contracts with a third party, the field is marked “NA”.
Appliance Dolly – Supplied by selfservice movers to help you load and unload large items, like
appliances and oversized furniture.
Assessed Value Coverage – This specifies how much money per $1,000 of assessed value you will
need to pay to cover your household items to their fullyassessed value. Purchasing this protection
requires that a cash value be assigned to the items you will be moving. If a deductible is applied, that
value is stated next to the costper$1,000 figure. For example, “7.50/100” means that the consumer
must pay $7.50 per $1,000 of assessed value to cover the load against loss, and the first $100 of
damage is not covered. Some valuation policies are calculated on a sliding scale, where the price per
$1,000 of coverage will vary depending on the total amount of coverage. In such cases, carriers are
requested to quote valuation prices based on $25,000 of coverage. Please note that most valuation
policies require that the entire load be covered, not just specific items. Ask your carrier for terms.
