Guidance Q&A

Question 1:  What are my Rights and Responsibilities when Moving?

Guidance:  Consumers moving interstate are issued the booklet Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move (R&R) with the written estimate.  The R&R explains important aspects of the moving process and the rights and responsibilities of consumers.  The R&R should be read by consumers as soon it is provided.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) provides information to consumers on the Protect Your Move website (https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/protect-your-move) to assist consumers in understanding every phase of the moving process, address questions and expectations.
