Your Rights and Responsibilities During A Move

June 3, 2024

It may appear that only an experienced lawyer understands all of the moving rights and responsibilities that your relocation may entail. In reality, we should all be aware of the legal implications of a move. It will not only save us time and money, but it will also make the relocation more efficient and smooth.

All moving companies are required to provide you with a booklet titled “Your Rights and Responsibilities When Moving.” The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is in charge of this (FMCSA).

Your Moving Rights and Responsibilities

Read it carefully when you get it from your mover. You will understand what types of insurance a moving company can provide, how to limit a mover’s liability for your belongings, the difference between a binding estimate and a non-binding estimate, and much more. Each mover is required by federal law to provide you with a booklet titled “Rights and Responsibilities,” which you can find a summary of here.

Before you relocate, make sure you read the FMCSA‘s booklet. There are additional items there that we have not mentioned here, such as requirements for the “Bill of lading,” important information about the delivery receipt, and much more. Don’t forget to check that the moving company you choose provides you with your “Rights and Responsibilities”! Determine your moving company’s DOT number to ensure you are not dealing with a fake mover. Some movers include short or long-term storage as part of their relocation package. If you intend to restyle your new home before moving in, this is a good option.
