Long Distance Moving Information

Long Distance Moving Information

Long distance moving has considerably changed after following new policies that were put forward in the 1980s. These changes ultimately created a market that favors business over consumers and offers the latter comparatively little accommodation. These slipshod guidelines are also the primary reason for the widespread moving fraud observed today, and for current backlash for changes in federal law.

In 1980, the Household Goods Transportation Act changed all this, deregulating the monopoly businesses and allowing small businesses to proliferate. Although there are clearly many advantages to these changes, they have frequently caused trouble for consumers in need of long distance moving .

This act sets up a situation in which anyone can be a licensed mover, raising ethical concern. Whereas it used to take years and a thorough process to secure the appropriate certifications, it now takes less than a month. This means anyone can apply for and obtain documents that allow him to move your belongings, regardless of their actual integrity or qualifications, which is quite concerning.

The competition in the long distance moving market can still be advantageous for consumers, but they need to do careful work before choosing a moving company. A check of DOT numbers and certifications is only the beginning. A thorough background search involves a check of references and moving equipment too.
