That is correct Ms_Ma_Atty long carries no longer exist in tariff 400n. If you used a major carrier's agency, Mayflower, United, Allied etc, and were charged "extra labor" for a longer then normal walk from the truck to your new residence I would reccomend firstly to call the moving company that you...

We only use 400n, but Mayflower has a TPG type tariff that can be used.
Go to the Mayflower intranet and you can download a copy or call Cris Porter at Mayflower Headquarters and she can send or fax you a copy.
If TPG is being used in your area this might be a solution :wink:

Tim, Why 110% I think it should be 100% of the estimate as long as "both" the consumer and the mover can agree on the items and services that are to be included in the estimate. But Tim I am sure you will agree that the intent shouldnt be to allow a consumer to tender free services above what was si...

Support H.R. 1070, There are no such thing as LONG CARRY charges anymore they do not exist in Tariff 400n. Neither do elevator or stair charges. The only thing that can alter your charges at destination are the conditions at the destination address that "you" have chosen to move to. The moving compa...

JayR & Michael, You and Michael are in an area where this may be true, but in the New York City area we almoast never see TPG estimates from Allied only 400n. Mayflower and United have a similar tariff available that is like TPG, but like TPG it is fixed at a very low discount and in our area it is ...

What if the building manager says a truck will fit but then the driver says it doesn't? Have your building manager that said that a tractor trailer(53 ft) has access to your destination fax or email you a short letter to that effect. Send that letter to your mover and let them know that you do not i...

Sorry to tell you that you are wrong. Allied uses the 400n tariff. Total Price Guarentee or TPG is a type of binding estimate that Allied sometimes does in which they will bind their price according to the items that you have agreed to ship with them. Knowing people in Allied agencys and having had ...

Nkiru, You should also include in your article information as to how a consumer could avoid these unforseen(by both mover and customer) shuttle charges. The consumer can call their realty agent and/or building manager,at their destination, and ask them if where they are moving to is accesible to a t...

That was not my intention at all Tyrone.
My post was not about fault finding only an offering of an effective way for the consumer to be proactive in their quest to recieve a legitimate estimate from a legitimate company.

They should all be using 400n. The ones that have 400m written it has to be a typo,because 400m hasnt been used by the major carriers since early 2001. Be sure to make your own list and compare it to the movers "table of measurements". Example:If you have 150 boxes on your list and the mover has 50b...
