|Effective July 1, 2005, The Georgia Public Service Commission (Commission)
has approved a 90-day extension of the four (4) percent fuel surcharge for household goods movers and
the five (5) percent fuel surcharge for luxury limousine carriers. This approval extends the temporary
orders approved April 13 and May 11, 2005 which expired June 30, 2005. The fuel surcharge
extensions will expire on September 30, 2005.
|The Commission's order makes it clear that all luxury limousine carriers and household goods movers
must notify customers in writing in advance of the surcharges before they can impose these surcharges.
In addition, household goods movers must notify the Commission within two weeks if the surcharges
would cause the carriers to exceed their maximum rate tariffs. Movers must also notify the
Commission in writing by July 15, 2005 of their intent to implement the fuel surcharge.
