Moving specific glossary terms
All industries have their specific terms. Here are a couple that you might hear from your local moving company.
A move that takes place under 450 miles. Short hauls are (generally) performed with straight trucks, although tractor-trailers can, and are, often employed to complete large short haul moves.
Storage In Transit (S.I.T.)
Temporary storage of your household goods in the warehouse of the carrier or carrier’s agent, pending further transportation.
A truck, generally one half the size and capacity of a tractor-trailer. Straight trucks are single cab and body vehicles (as opposed to a tractor-trailer on which the cab can be separated from the trailer).
