Protecting Americans Against Moving Scams TM

WELCOME TO AMACP

AMACP’s mission is to educate and protect over 40 million Americans who move each year from hidden fees, moving scams and rogue operators. AMACP.org grades businesses that provide moving services, based on history, complaints, and reviews. We empower consumers to reward good business practices, whilst helping individuals avoiding rogue or unlicensed operators. AMACP believes that American consumers are best served, when businesses are accountable and operate with integrity and transparency.

Hidden Moving Fees:

AMACP’s “Hidden Moving Fees” guide blows the whistle on tactics moving services may employ, to tack on additional fees to your move or relocation. This is especially true when moving companies secure jobs from brokers, or lead sites. Consumers should be cautious on divulging personal information to such sites, because moving services may be inclined to recoup fees paid to secure the job through hidden moving fees.

AMACP has compiled a list of the 10 most common moving scams, along with moving tips on how to avoid them. Consumers and businesses who utilize our resources significantly reduce the chance of falling victim to a moving scam and can make big savings on their move or relocation.
