As if moving weren’t enough of a huge headache, some movers can cost more than inconvenience: they can cost one everything they own. The InterstateMovingCompanies.net website wants to help those moving to avoid this by spreading knowledge of new legislation signed into lawthat will begin in October by President Obama. The Transportation Department will now have the authority to offer assistance to consumers with items being held illegally by unscrupulous moving companies. These companies can be fined as much as $10,000 a day for this unethical and illegal practice. Moreover, by October 2014, moving companies will be required to pass tests on the subjects of estimation for moving services and consumer protection.
