We understand, there are times where a local move survey cannot be completed due to time constraints. On the occasion, a local move survey cannot me conducted, we can conduct a thorough telephone interview to discuss the details of the move as well as the items the client would like moved. We will make a best approximate estimate but for an accurate move estimate, nothing compares to an actual on site move survey.
AMWAT Moving provides local moving services in Leon County, Wakulla County, Gadsden County, Jefferson County and Liberty County. We provide moving services throughout the State of Florida, please check out our intrastate moving services.
Intrastate Moving Services
AMWAT Moving is one of Florida most trusted intrastate movers. An intrastate move occurs when a Florida resident is moving to another county within the State of Florida. Moving to a different county, unless you are close to the county border you are moving too, is considered a long distance move. When moving long distance that is, beyond 50 miles it is highly recommended you obtain an onsite move estimate. You want to be sure the moving company you hire comes prepared with the right size moving truck, moving pads and moving equipment to facilitate your long distance move in an efficient and safe manner.
LOCAL MOVES AND INTRASTATE MOVES: Pursuant to Chapter 507, Florida Statutes, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is the agency charged with licensing and regulating the moving industry. Pursuant to Section 507.07, “ it is a violation to conduct business as a mover or moving broker . . . without being registered” with the department. To check whether a moving company is licensed in Florida, to review applicable laws and to obtain valuable moving guidelines and moving tips, a consumer can visit the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website at https://csapp.800helpfla.com/cspublicapp/businesssearch/businesssearch.aspx.
Interstate Moving Services
Household goods moving requiring the crossing of state lines is considered an interstate move. Interstate moving companies are regulated by the United States Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Moving companies crossing state lines must obtain operating authority from the United States Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. A moving company caught crossing state lines by U.S. DOT without operating authority may result in an immediate shut down of its operations which will negatively impact the consumer whose household goods are on that company’s moving van. Verifying whether a moving company has U.S. DOT operating authority is easy by going online to http://ai.volpe.dot.gov/hhg/search.asp. Although AMWAT Moving has its own operating authority, most of our interstate moves are under Wheaton World Wide Moving’s Interstate Operating Authority. Many local moving companies (including Tallahassee movers like us) operate under an agency agreement with individual national carriers, commonly called van lines, hence when crossing state lines often these moving companies operate under the van line’s authority. In that case, all the information the consumer receives regarding the interstate move should be co-branded, for example, AMWAT Moving Warehousing & Storage, agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving.
Consumers who are moving across state lines should be aware of the “Household Goods Movers Oversight Enforcement and Reform Act of 2005,” that was enacted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in 2005. Most importantly consumers should be aware that federal law requires all estimates must be in writing. Also, if the household goods to be moved are located within a 50-mile radius of the carrier or its agent, then a physical survey must be conducted unless the shipper signs a waiver.
AMWAT Moving Warehousing & Storage is an agent for Wheaton World Wide Moving who operates as a national carrier of household goods and is commonly identified as a van lines. Most national carriers (van lines) maintain operating authority to move household goods across state lines. An agent is a local moving company like Tallahassee movers, AMWAT Moving Warehousing & Storage, who is authorized to act on behalf of a larger, national company like Wheaton World Wide Moving.
