On the day of the move your mover must provide you with a copy of moving contract also known as bill of lading or freight bill.
The bill of lading is a key document since it contains all of the essential terms and conditions of the agreement between the mover and the shipper and serves as a legal contract. Bill of lading must stay with the shipment at all times.
The bill of lading provides information:
(1) About customer's valuation options, and in turn establishes mover's liability over the goods transporting in case of loss or damage.
(2) Provides identification of the mover.
(3) Date and time of pick up.
(4) Date and time of delivery.
(5) Tariff information (local or long distance).
(6) Customer name.
(7) Customer pickup and delivery addresses.
(8) Payment methods.
(9) Maximum cost of the move.
When the goods are unloaded at destination, the shipper must sign the bill of lading as to the fact that shipment has been delivered and the payment for it has been made.
