Question by metz1055 (Max)


Signing Order for Service

Ok, I have a copy of Estimate/Order of Service - Binding-not-to exceed from the moving company. Should I sign this document and fax back to them or should I wait until my moving date when the moving truck comes? Just a little unsure!!! Thank you

Answer by julie (Julie Owens)

Maxine,

By all means do sign and fax the Order for Service. Here is a quote from "Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move" brochure explaining what the Order For Service is and what to do with it:
Moving companies are required to prepare an order for service on every shipment transported for an individual shipper. You are entitled to a copy of the order for service when it is prepared.

The order for service is not a contract. Should your move be canceled or delayed or if you decide not to use the mover, you should promptly cancel the order.

Should there be any change in the dates on which you and the mover agreed that your shipment will be picked up and delivered, or any change in the non-binding estimate, the mover may prepare a written change to the order for service. The written change should be attached to the order for service. You and the mover must sign the order for service.

Bottom line, it is OK to sign.



Good luck with your move,
