Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 515-16-6-.12 - Estimates on Household Goods Moves

Current through Rules and Regulations filed through December 14, 2021

(1) Motor carriers engaged in the transportation of household goods may provide written estimates of the approximate costs which will be assessed for the transportation of such shipments. Estimates shall be reasonably accurate and shall be furnished without charge and in writing to the shipper or other person responsible for payment of the freight charges. All such estimates shall have clearly indicated on the face thereof that the estimate is not binding on the carrier and that the charges shown are the approximate charges which will be assessed for the services identified in the estimate. The estimate must clearly describe the shipment and all services to be provided. At the time of delivery of a collect on delivery shipment, except when such shipment is being delivered to a warehouse for storage at the request of the shipper, on which an estimate of the approximate costs has been furnished by the carrier, the shipper may request delivery of the shipment upon payment, in a form acceptable to the carrier, an amount not exceeding 110% of the estimated charges. The carrier shall, upon request of the shipper, relinquish possession of the shipment upon payment of not more than 110% of the estimated charges and shall defer demand for the payment of the balance of any remaining charges for a period of 30 days following the date of delivery.
(2) This rule shall not apply on shipments being delivered to a warehouse for storage at shipper's request.
