Helpful Information When Planning a Residential Move

 

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO USE THE SERVICES OF A MOVER

Moving from one residence to another is an important event in the life of the average citizen of Maryland. As with any fee for service transaction, you should protect yourself by knowing what rules may apply and what recourse you have as a consumer of the services of a mover. While movers or moving companies are not specifically licensed by the state, there are certain rules and protections that apply at both the State and Federal levels. Moves within the state are "Intrastate" moves, while moves between states are "Interstate" moves.

Below are links to three websites designed to provide you with useful information if you are considering or planning a move.

MD ATTORNEY GENERAL - CONSUMER PROTECTION DIVISION - Information about Intrastate moves specifically and other helpful facts.

FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIER SAFETY ADMINISTRATION - A wealth of information on Interstate moves.

MARYLAND MOVERS CONFERENCE - The consumer information page of this statewide, non-profit organization comprised of over 50 moving companies providing services in our state.
