Operation Protect Your Move

With the strong support of ATA’s Moving and Storage Conference, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has taken a multi-pronged approach to target rogue movers who defraud consumers. 

Why it matters: There has been a significant uptick in complaints of movers holding household goods hostage. In response, FMCSA launched “Operation: Protect Your Move.” 

The results are in: Over three weeks, dozens of agency personnel:   

  • Conducted more than 100 investigations in 16 states 
  • Brought over 60 enforcement actions.

FMCSA pledged to keep building on this progress, and the work of “Operation: Protect Your Move” is ongoing.
