Yes, yes!! Transportation Department Targets Moving-Company Abuse With New Law
Sometimes, when a moving company has all your earthly possessions boxed up in a truck, they take it as a license to do whatever they like -- charge you extra, hold onto your stuff indefinitely or even threaten you if you don't cough up extra cash.
A new law aims to change that.
The Transportation Department will be able to charge unscrupulous movers a minimum penalty of $10,000 if they try to squeeze customers for extra money, under a law signed by President Obama earlier this month, according to USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.
