Moving Booklet: Your Rights and Responsibilities. If you’re planning on hiring a moving company to help you relocate, your first step should be to visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for information on how to protect your move. Every moving company is required by law to provide you with a booklet that outlines your rights and responsibilities as consumer. This is required as protection against fraudulent movers and to ensure that you have resources available should you wish to lodge a complaint. The FMCSA website takes things one step further by providing a more comprehensive list of resources, websites, and guidelines for preventing fraud.
