AMSA President and CEO Linda Bauer Darr testifies before the US Senate Commerce Committee on fighting rogue movers and improving consumer protection. The hearings were held today September 20th at the Russell Senate Office Building 235 Washington, D.C.
The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will held a hearing and release a staff report on how online moving companies have successfully taken advantage of many consumers. The hearing will explore complaints that some “moving” companies quote a low dollar rate to move goods but then charge a sharp markup in order to physically deliver and unload the goods and even hold them ransom.
“Far too many consumers are duped by abusive moving companies in tactics that should be, and in some cases are, against the law,” said Chairman John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV. “Companies that take advantage of Americans during moves, whether they are across the country or across town, must be held accountable. That’s the purpose of this hearing.” Cord Moving and Storage Headquartered in Saint Louis is a long time Association member is supporting and has contributed to the testimony provided by Linda Bauer Darr at the hearings.Tags: CEO, Consumer, CORD, Cord Moving, Cord Moving and Storage, Movers, Moving Companies, Saint Louis, Storage, Transportation, U.S., US
