“Unlicensed moving companies pose a consumer fraud risk to the general public, who often times have no idea that their moving company may be unlicensed and in some cases, uninsured,” said Beck.

“I have worked closely throughout 2015 with industry professionals to ensure that legislation exists that protects consumers from unscrupulous moving companies, and increases the penalties that are levied. To that end, I have submitted S-534 to the legislature. Additionally, my legislation allows for local law enforcement to impound unlicensed moving vehicles. The fact that a one-day sting operation was able to net 21 unlicensed movers speaks to the widespread consumer fraud problem this has become,” concluded Beck.
