Moving terms (Long Carry, Net Weight)

All industries have their specific terms. Here are a couple that you might hear from your local moving company.

Long Carry (Distance Carry)
A charge assessed when a shipment must be moved more than 75 feet from the rear of the moving van to the entrance of the residence.

Long Haul
A move that takes place over 450 miles. Long hauls are (generally) performed with tractor-trailers.

Net weight
Gross weight minus the tare weight. You are entitled to a copy of the scale ticket to verify your shipment’s actual net weight.

Operating Authority
Certification issued by a state or federal governmental entity authorizing a carrier to move household goods between designated geographical areas. A van line’s agent may also have its own separate “operating authority” issued by a state or federal governmental entity, to move shipments within a certain geographical area.

From D. Phillips:
Big Thank you to Jerimiah and Eric for the great help in packing moving, as well as unloading and unpacking of furnitures from Roseville to the Villas at Stanford Ranch Road today. Their service was ‘tremendous’. Highly recommend this service and would not hesitate to use them again. 👍😊Thank you.

From N. Kahn:
Jose, Rozney & Tony moved furniture into Assisted Living Facility for us and although it wasn’t a big move, I was impressed with their quality of service. They were courteous and professional and took great care that furniture was moved like it was their own. They set-up in new place and moved furniture around to our satisfaction. Rozney & Tony were in training but they followed all Jose’s directions and took the initiative to do other things too without being told to do so. The company is insured which was an important factor for me and Jose explained everything in paperwork he filled out. They did a walk through before putting furniture on truck and one at the end to ensure everything was done to our satisfaction. Over all a great move that was efficient and well done and I highly recommend House to Home Moving.
