Federal law requires that movers advise their customers that they may inspect the tariffs that govern their shipments. Mover's tariff, by this reference, are made a part of the contract (bill of lading) between the customer and the mover and may be inspected at mover's facility; or, on request, mover will provide a copy of any tariff provision containing mover's rates, rules or charges governing shipments, the terms of which can not be varied.
Incorporated tariff provisions include but not limited to those:
1) esteblishing limitation of mover's liability, the principal features of which are described in the valuation declaration of the bill of lading;
2) setting the time periods for filing claims, the principal features of which are described in Section 6 of the bill of lading;
3) reserving the mover's right to assess additional charges for additional services performed and, on non-binding estimates, to base charges on the exact weight of the goods transported.
