SUMMARY OF DISPUTE SETTLEMENT PROGRAM: Summary of dispute settlement program: The neutral arbitration program has been designed to give neither party any special advantage. If a dispute arises between Long Distance Moving Experts and the shipper arbitration may be a mutually beneficial alternative to help resolve the dispute. Section 49 CFR Section 375.211 provides that a mover must have a program in place to provide shippers with an Arbitration alternative. Arbitration is optional and not required under Federal law. A. Summary of the arbitration process: Arbitration is an alternative to courtroom litigation. It provides each party to the dispute to present their cases and allows a neutral third party arbitrator to make a decision as to the merits of each side’s case. Arbitration subject to this agreement shall be conducted via written submission and, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion, through telephonic appearance. After the initial filing fees have been paid and the arbitrator selected, the initiating party or “Claimant” must submit a written brief summarizing their legal position and factual claims. All supporting documentation must be included with the initial arbitration brief. Copies of all documents must be submitted to all parties involved in the arbitration. Upon receipt of the Claimant’s arbitration brief and supporting documents, the responding party or “Respondent” will have 30 days to file their responsive arbitration brief and supporting documentation. Further deadlines and timetables are subject to the arbitrator’s discretion. B. Legal effects: If the arbitration alternative is chosen, then any decision made by the arbitrator may be binding. Additionally, an arbitration decision may not be appealed in a court of law. All parties agree that the Arbitrators decision will be based exclusively on the governing United States Federal Law without regard to conflicting State laws or regulations. C. Applicable costs: Each party is responsible for their own costs associated with arbitration. A benefit to the arbitration alternative may be that it is less expensive than traditional litigation. Each party is responsible for 50% of the costs associated with securing the arbitrator and 100% of their own expenses, including but not limited to attorney fees. There is a $250 filing fee FOR
EACH PARTY and a supplemental charge of $50 administration fee. Call carrier at the phone number on the front of this form for ADR processing forms.
DELIVERY SERVICES: Unless noted on this Estimate Cost For Service, the customer must be able and available to receive the goods starting the day after the goods were picked up. Any changes made by the customer to their Delivery date once agreed upon may result in additional storage fees. The charge for storage handling is $0.75 per cubic foot per storage entry, the charge for storage rent is $0.50 per cubic foot per month. All estimated time of arrivals is subject to change depending on many industry factors such as traffic, weather conditions, unforeseen mechanical problems or unexpected delays with prior deliveries scheduled before you. Note: We will not discount any account due to any delays listed above (unless otherwise noted on order). Our company will keep the customer informed verbally with a new / revised ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) depending on company schedule.
NOTE: Customer has agreed to receive and subsequently received the FMCSA publications “Ready to Move? – Tips for a Successful Interstate Move” and “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move” via e-mail hyperlink and accessed the Federal consumer protection information on the Internet.” Additionally, In accordance with 49 CFR §371.113(c)(1), the customer agrees to waive a physical survey of the household goods and alternatively agrees to receive a Binding Estimate based upon the customer provided item list of property to be transported and services ordered. The terms of this estimate and all services to be provided are subject to the carrier’s tariffs (rates), incorporated by reference and available for inspection upon reasonable request at the carrier’s offices.
VERY IMPORTANT – IF YOU ADD ITEMS AT PICK-UP OR IF THE ITEMS ARE A DIFFERENT VOLUME AND/OR WEIGHT FROM WHAT IS ITEMIZED ON THIS ESTIMATE:
1. The mover may provide you with a revised estimate
2. DO NOT allow the mover to load the truck or perform any services before you agree in writing to the new estimate
3. If you have not signed the mover’s revised estimate, and the mover loads the truck, then Federal regulation requires that the mover has reaffirmed the original estimate and cannot demand additional payment at delivery for the additional items. Any balance due above the binding estimate would need to be billed by the mover thirty days after delivery.
This is why we ask you to notify us of modifications at least 3 business days before the scheduled pick-up date, to avoid surprises at pick-up! On the day of pick-up, your foreman may offer you a new revised estimate listing all costs for the entire move including the additional services ordered or additional items to be moved, if any. The total price will be the same as the price listed on this estimate if your inventory’s estimated weight/volume has not changed and if you do not require additional services. If your inventory’s estimated weight/volume increases or Decreases, if you require additional services, however, then your price may change based on the rate per pound and hours/or cubic feet stated in this estimate.
CLAIM FILING PROCEDURE: As per company TERMS AND CONDITIONS, in the unlikely event a customer realizes that some of their goods are damaged or missing, or if they feel that they have been over-charged or charged for services that they didn’t receive prior, during or after services were completed, all customers FULLY understand that they MUST initially give the service provider (Moving Company) the FIRST RIGHT to fully investigate and respond in writing with a resolution to their issues.
