Limited Access charges may be incurred when a carrier makes a delivery at a location with limited access. Examples of destinations which may have limited access included, but are not limited to:
What is a Limited Access charge?
How can I ship boxes?
The least expensive way to ship large boxes of household goods, clothes and non-breakable items is through ground freight. Boxes will be placed on a pallet, stretch-wrapped and banded to keep them all together.
How and when do I pay for my shipment?
Payment in full is required once your shipment is packed and a final weight is determined. We accept all major credit cards as well as checks.
Do you have minimum weights?
No, traditional movers have minimum weights, meaning you pay to move a load whether it weighs 2,000 pounds or not. Navis has no minimum weight requirements, which is how we can help you save on small moves.
What does the total price include?
Unless other arrangements have been made, the total price includes the pickup of your items, the transport back to the warehouse, the packing of the goods, the transport and delivery of the items to the destination and declared value coverage on the items themselves.
Are there items you cannot ship?
If the weight of my item changes, how does that impact the pricing?
On standard ground freight shipments the weight of the shipment is used to determine the transportation cost. As a rule of thumb, we can use the estimate and the projected weight to develop a cost per pound. This will give you an idea of how a change in weight will impact the pricing. On parcel freight, air and ocean shipments the transportation cost is determined by the higher of the "actual weight" or the "dimensional weight" of your shipment.
What is the USAR?
The USAR is the Universal Shipment and Release Agreement. This is the contract between you as a customer and the Navis franchise location. This will detail what is being shipped, the condition of the item(s), the value, the destination of where the shipment is going and the agreed upon price.
