WHO ARE WE?
The NJMTB is a separate non profit corporation that is an affiliate of the NJWMA and is overseen by the Executive committee of NJWMA. Its primary function is to create and maintain tariff rules, regulations and define the standard terms of conditions for industry services that carriers may offer for its members for intrastestate moving. NJMTB has developed a joint tariff of individually published rates for its members that fall within the guidelines of the FTC and their rules and regulations for the performance of services as a public mover and or warehouseman between points within the state of New Jersey . The base tariff with its standard terms and conditions in its copyrighted format has been accepted and approved by the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs as pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:44D-3.1 as well as all preceding regulatory agencies since 1969 when moving first became regulated in New Jersey .
WHY DO WE NEED TARIFFS?
The State of New Jersey regulatory agency, The Division of Consumer Affairs, requires all movers to publish and maintain the rates they will charge consumers in a tariff of proper format and submit that tariff to the DCA to be kept on file for that mover. Movers are also allowed to file a change of rates only twice a year. The NJMTB provides full tariff services for its members and files the requested rates on that mover’s behalf as well as filing rate changes for members twice a year upon written member requests for changes. Each carrier must independently supply the moving and accessorial rates that they request NJMTB to file with the Director of The Division of Consumer Affairs in their behalf. Only the Executive Director of NJMTB can review and discuss tariffs with each individual member; such discussions are limited to the method, applicability or type of charges, not to the actual rates that the carrier has filed. The NJMTB will publish individual rates and does not suggest or recommend rates to any of its members. Whatever rates the member needs, requires, or desires are filed for that member and are subject to acceptance by the Director of NJ Division of Consumer Affairs.
WHAT ELSE DOES NJMTB DO?
The NJMTB will act as the designated agent of record for members. We also provide a professional answer source for members or those people first entering the moving industry to help them understand the complicated rules and regulations of the industry. Additionally, the NJMTB will also provide assistance for prospective new movers who want to become licensed movers. We help them by explaining NJ regulations as they complete the licensing application before filing it with the DCA, review paperwork with the applicant and provide them with the state required tariff for their submission for a license.
