Moving specific glossary terms

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

Unpacking
The removal of your goods from containers (boxes) and crates, and the disposal of such containers and packing materials.

Valuation
Shipper's declaration of the value declared for the possessions being shipped, thereby establishing the carrier's maximum liability for loss or damage to the shipment. If no value is declared, the liability is then controlled by the tariff under which the shipment was moved.

Van Operator
The driver of the vehicle carrying your household goods.

Van
Movers call all types and kinds of trucks used for moving "vans".  A van can be as small as a small econoline pack van or as large as a long tractor-trailer.
