New Frontier Van Lines Q&A
What’s the difference between a mover and a moving broker?
A moving broker arranges for the transportation of your belongings by hiring carries to provide the actual truck and transportation services. A broker is not responsible for your items and is not authorized to transport them. Brokers are required to use FMCSA certified movers.
When is the best time to move?
Like most moving companies, New Frontier says the busiest time for them is the summer months (May-September). Rates will be competitive during this time.
Are there any items that you can’t move?
According to New Frontier, all licensed movers won’t move hazardous or combustible items like gas or propane tanks, paint and aerosols. The temperature of moving trucks can cause these items to explode or ignite.
When can you expect your shipment to be delivered?
Your truck driver will contact you 24-72 hours before your scheduled delivery date. The moving company assigned to your move by New Frontier will give you a customer service contact person to act as your point of contact. Long distance moves don’t come with an exact delivery date so you will be provided with a date range.
Are your belongings insured?
Under Federal law, moving companies providing interstate moves must offer you two types of liability coverage or valuation coverage. These two types are Full-Value Protection and Released Value.
