SUMMARY OF NEUTRAL DISPUTE SETTLEMENT PROGRAM: The neutral arbitration program has been designed to give neither party any special advantage. If a dispute arises between X Van Lines LLC and the shipper arbitration may be a mutually beneficial alternative to help resolve the dispute. Section 49 CFR Section 375.211 provides that a mover must have a program in place to provide shippers with an Arbitration alternative. Arbitration is optional and not required under Federal law. A. Summary of the arbitration process: Arbitration is an alternative to courtroom litigation. It provides each party to the dispute to present their cases and allows a neutral third party arbitrator to make decision as to the merits of each side`s case. Arbitration subject to this agreement shall be conducted via written submission and, subject to the arbitrator`s discretion, through telephonic appearance. After the initial filing fees have been paid and the arbitrator selected, the initiating party or Claimant must submit a written brief summarizing their legal position and factual claims. All supporting documentation must be included with the initial arbitration brief. Copies of all documents must be submitted to all parties involved in the arbitration. Upon receipt of the Claimant`s arbitration brief and supporting documents, the responding party or Respondent will have 30 days to file their responsive arbitration brief and supporting documentation. Further deadlines and timetables are subject to the arbitrator`s discretion. B. Legal effects: If the arbitration alternative is chosen, then any decision made by the arbitrator may be binding. Additionally, an arbitration decision may not be appealed in a court of law. All parties agree that the Arbitrators decision will be based exclusively on the governing United States Federal Law without regard to conflicting State laws or regulations. C. Applicable costs: Each party is responsible for their own costs associated with arbitration. A benefit to the arbitration alternative may be that it is less expensive than traditional litigation. Each party is responsible for 50% of the costs associated with securing the arbitrator and 100% of their own expenses, including but not limited to attorney fees. There is a $250 filing fee FOR EACH PARTY and a supplemental charge of $50 administration fee. Call carrier at phone number on front of this form for ADR processing forms.

SHIPMENT VALUATION AND COVERAGE: X Van Lines LLC Basic Liability of $0.60 per pound per article at no charge. If any article is lost, destroyed or damaged while in your mover`s custody, your mover`s liability is limited to the actual weight of the lost, destroyed or damaged article multiplied by $0.60 cent per pound per article. This is the basic liability level and is provided to you at no charge. It is considerably less than the average value of household goods. Full value protection coverage is available for additional cost at customer’s request (cannot be purchased after move has begun). See “Full Value Protection Amount of Liability” above.

Notice of Maximum amount due upon delivery: Final charges will be based on actual weight or cubic feet/volume of property and services provided. Maximum amount demanded at time of delivery, prior to unloading, is the amount of the non-binding estimate plus 10%; or 100% of the binding estimate. Actual charges may exceed the amount of estimate if additional services were ordered or required to be performed; if customer moved additional items, weight, or cubic feet; or if extra service options such as packing or storage were necessary.

VERY IMPORTANT – IF YOU ADD ITEMS AT PICK-UP OR IF THE ITEMS ARE A DIFFERENT VOLUME AND/OR WEIGHT FROM WHAT IS ITEMIZED ON THIS ESTIMATE:

 

  1. The mover may provide you with a revised estimate
  2. DO NOT allow the mover to load the truck or perform any services before you agree in writing to the new estimate
  3. If you have not signed the mover’s revised estimate, and the mover loads the truck, then Federal regulation requires that the mover has reaffirmed the original estimate and cannot demand additional payment at delivery for the additional items. Any balance due above the binding estimate would need to be billed by the mover thirty days after delivery.

 

This is why we ask you to notify us of modifications at least 3 business days before the scheduled pick-up date, to avoid surprises at pick-up! On the day of pick-up, your foreman may offer you a new revised estimate listing all costs for the entire move including the additional services ordered or additional items to be moved, if any. The total price will be the same as the price listed on this estimate if your inventory’s estimated weight/volume has not changed and if you do not require additional services. If your inventory’s estimated weight/volume increases or if you require additional services, however, then your price may change based on the rate per pound and/or cubic feet stated in this estimate.
