We are continuing our series of articles defining some of the most common moving terms used by movers and packers. Our previous article covered the bill of lading, which is another name for your receipt. We also defined inventory as a descriptive, itemized list of the household goods your long distance or local movers will be handling. And we discussed that a high value article was any item valued at more than $100 per pound. Let’s define a few more moving terms:
ORDER FOR SERVICE
The order for service is the final document that authorizes your full service moving company to transport your household goods to a designated location, which could be your new home, a storage facility, or somewhere else as authorized by you.
Storage-in-transit is a term your moving and storage company uses to refer to the temporary storage facility where your household goods are being transported for an interim move. SIT is used quite often in military moves, and also in moves where someone is moving to a temporary location while they wait to close on another home.
This is essentially the value of your entire shipment of household goods. Your moving and storage company will assign a monetary value to the household goods they are transporting.
