MoveRescue® is the first industry-endorsed consumer assistance service aimed at stopping disreputable and unscrupulous interstate movers.
Approximately 1.6 million Americans hire interstate household goods movers each year. Unfortunately, a reported 3,000 cases of possible mover fraud occur annually. Many of these cases involve criminals who offer low estimates and then hold customers’ possessions hostage in undisclosed warehouses, demand thousands of dollars in additional payments and threaten auction. MoveRescue is devoted to ending this problem by seeing that moving companies abide by the federal consumer protection regulations.
Please call 800-832-1773 if you would like to speak with a MoveRescue representative. You will be asked to provide information about your move and to forward your shipping documents for review. A knowledgeable representative will answer your questions about the moving process and advise you of the appropriate next steps to take.
Thank you for all the donations and for giving us your time last Monday.
It was a day we will never forget. We wish each and every one of you could have been there to experience the joy on the faces of the women and children who ALL MOVED IN THAT VERY DAY!
We asked for furniture and household items for FOUR mothers and children transitioning out of homelessness and you did not hesitate. Not only were we able to give St. Raymond’s House everything they needed for a fresh start but you showed them there is a greater community that cares.
A special thank you to Chipman Relocation and Logistics for providing over 50 employees for the day and for believing in our mission. We couldn’t have dreamed for a better partner.
AND thank you to LOPC in Lafayette for spreading the word and giving us the space to Gather!
PLUS, WE HAVE A WINNER for the Warriors Raffle! Thanks to everyone who participated! Please see winner below!
This is an amazing transformation, you won’t want to miss! Thank you for making this dream come true for FOUR families last week!

(Alexandria, VA) — The American Moving & Storage Association congratulates the 2016 AMSA Fleet Safety Award winners for their outstanding record of success as the nation’s safest moving and storage company truck and van fleets. These annual awards recognize overall safety, improvement in safety, and creativity and leadership in safety program design.
The 2016 winners are:
- Under 5 Million Miles: Interstate Van Lines of Springfield, Va.
- 5-20 Million Miles: New World Van Lines of Chicago
- 20-50 Million Miles: Wheaton|Bekins of Indianapolis
- Over 50 Million Miles: United Van Lines of St. Louis
- Intrastate Fleet Safety Award: Fry-Wagner of Lenexa, Kansas

The Mileage Awards are based on annual miles traveled and presented to the interstate carrier in each mileage category that has the best weighted combination of the lowest U.S. Department of Transportation recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation, and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rate. An award is also presented to a single intrastate carrier that best meets the same criteria. The Safety Improvement Award recognizes a carrier’s successful efforts to reduce the incidence of accidents.
“The American Moving & Storage Association salutes all of these companies for their excellent record of safe vehicle operations,” said Scott Michael, AMSA president and CEO. “Some of these companies have won this award more than once, demonstrating a strong commitment to the highest level of safety for their customers and themselves year after year. Their safety records represent a high level of achievement for the entire moving and storage industry.”
Each year AMSA recognizes the industry’s best performing and highest achieving individuals and companies. The 2016 industry awards will be presented during AMSA’s 98th Annual Education Conference & Expo in Palm Springs, Calif., on February 28.
