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.
