FormImporter Security Filing (IMF 10+2)

On January 26, 2009, the new rule titled Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements (commonly known as “10+2”) went into effect. This new rule applies to import cargo arriving to the United States by vessel. Failure to comply with the new rule could ultimately result in monetary penalties, increased inspections and delay of cargo. The information submitted in Importer Security Filings improves U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) ability to identify high-risk shipments in order to prevent smuggling and ensure cargo safety and security.

What is an Importer Security Filing?

Under the new rule, before merchandise arriving by vessel can be imported into the United States, the “Importer Security Filing (ISF) Importer,” or their agent (e.g., licensed customs broker), must electronically submit certain advance cargo information to CBP in the form of an Importer Security Filing. This requirement only applies to cargo arriving in the United States by ocean vessel; it does not apply to cargo arriving by other modes of transportation.

Do you have questions regarding your move?

Do I need to empty my drawers?

You can choose which items to pack yourself and which our qualified personnel, taking into account that everything you move must be packed avoiding the movement of items inside furniture and any damage. This is also an aid to the easy movement of your furniture on the move.

Suitable packaging for wooden furniture and high-value items, jewelry, artwork, etc.

GMR cannot control whether proper packing methods are used on boxes packed by the customer, and liability is limited where allowed by law. In addition, furniture made of pressed wood often sold by Ikea, Staples and others are not designed to be moved and GMR cannot be held responsible for damage to these items.

Your Means of Transportation

While it is fun to ride in our moving trucks, our insurance company prohibits us from giving rides to customers. Therefore, please arrange your own transportation from your origin to your destination.

What is Travel Time?

Travel time is calculated as the time it takes for our crew to arrive at the origin address, plus the time it takes the crew to get back to our office from the destination address. Travel time is set prior to the move and does not change even if our crew is stranded in traffic or due to inclement weather. Driving between the origin and destination is considered billable labor time and has been factored into your quote.


If you have a binding price for your move, then it includes the cost of tolls. If your move is based on an hourly rate, the cost of tolls is in addition to the labor and materials.
