Protect Yourself against Moving Fraud

Protect Yourself against Moving Fraud:-
  • Know your rights and responsibilities before selecting a mover.
  • Learn to spot the red flags of moving fraud.
  • Be sure your mover is registered with FMCS.
  • Read and understand all information provided by the mover.


  • The mover should provide you with the following basic written documents as part of your move:
    Document Description
    Estimate The estimate should clearly describe, in writing, all charges for services the mover will perform. Make sure the estimate is signed by the mover. Do not accept verbal estimates.
    Order for Service The order for service is a list of all the services the mover will perform and shows the dates your household goods will be picked up and delivered.
    Bill of Lading The bill of lading is a contract between you and the mover and a receipt of your belongings. You should be given a partially completed copy of the bill of lading before the mover leaves the residence at origin.
    Inventory List The inventory is the receipt showing each item you shipped and its condition. Be sure you receive a written copy of the inventory after your household goods are loaded, and that you agree with its description of your household goods' condition.

  • Do NOT sign blank or incomplete documents.
  • Make sure you understand the type of liability you agree to.
  • Supervise the process.
