  • What is a Bill of Lading?
    Every mover is required to prepare a bill of lading for every shipment transported. The bill of lading is the receipt for your goods and the contract with Matco Moving Solutions for our transportation. The driver who loads your shipment must give you a copy of the bill of lading.

    It is your responsibility to read and understand the information on the bill of lading before you sign it. The bill of lading identifies the mover and specifies when the transportation is to be performed. It also specifies the terms and conditions for payment of the total charges and the maximum amount required to be paid at the time of delivery, if you are moving under a non-binding estimate. Information regarding the valuation of your shipment and the amount Matco Moving Solutions will be liable for, in the event of loss or damage, is also shown.
