More than 35 million Americans move each year for personal reasons and career opportunities. It’s a significant event in anyone’s life. Your money and your life’s memories are at stake. It can be stressful, even under the best of circumstances.
Under the leadership of Secretary Elaine L. Chao, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is here to help. Our Protect Your Move campaign will:
- Help you learn to spot the red flags of moving fraud.
- Provide tips for a successful move.
- Help you understand your rights and responsibilities, and;
- Provide a handy moving checklist for before and during your move.
The Federal government, state and local law enforcement agencies, and the legitimate moving industry have joined forces to combat moving fraud, but you have an important role to play as well. If you’re planning to move, it’s important to do your research and plan for a smooth move.
