Moving Authority Arbitration Request Form
You can submit a dispute to arbitration through the Arbitration Request Form below. Moving Authority provides its Dispute Settlement Program based on legal guidelines. We adhere to Section 14708 of Title 49, United States Code policies. These policies get amended through authority of the US Department of Transportation (DOT).
Please use the form to request arbitration. This form is best for any party that has a dispute with a mover. Have you not been able to resolve your legal dispute? If so, there are two main types of arbitration moving disputes. Moving Authority specializes in both forms of these disputes. The first dispute scenario involves articles in a shipment. These articles have gotten damaged, destroyed, or lost during your move. Here is the second type of arbitral dispute that Moving Authority specializes in. It’s a dispute involving extra charges billed to you by a mover. These charges would have appeared once delivery of your shipment took place.
Per the rules of this program, you have to submit your request in a written format. You can use the form to submit your request to arbitrate. Plus, the form will allow you to give us crucial information for processing your request. Make sure that you complete all pages of the request form. Do you want to format your request for arbitration into a written letter? If so, please include all requested information featured within this form.

-DISPUTED CHARGES. These are charges that your mover billed you once your shipment got delivered.

Before proceeding, please keep the following notion in mind. Did you mover collect charges for services when your shipment got delivered? If so, these charges are not subject to a mandatory arbitration provision.
What Is the Cost of Arbitration?
Moving Authority and its affiliates must always maintain a fair and neutral position. That’s why our arbitration program can get administered by a national forum. A forum functions as a non-governmental and independent organization. It is not affiliated with Moving Authority on a direct basis. Plus, the forum is also not affiliated with any US household goods moving company.
The fees that a forum charges to arbitrate a moving dispute or case can vary. Keep in mind that you are the party that is instituting the case. Because of this, you will get requested to pay part of the fee. This should take place once your case goes to arbitration. (Unless the mover decides to pay your party’s share of the arbitration fee.) Disputes totaling above $10,000 will sometimes lead to a second fee. The amount of that fee varies based on the total amount in dispute.
Please remember that many moving disputes get settled before arbitration begins. DO NOT provide us with an administrative fee when making a first arbitration request. Also, DO NOT provide detailed documents that support your position for this request. Moving Authority will ask you to provide this information at a later date. We will do so once we know that your dispute cannot get settled. That’s when your case can proceed to arbitration through a forum.
Describe Your Dispute
We encourage you to describe your dispute in the box below. Please mention how you believe the claim should get resolved through the mover. If needed, you can attach documents and sheets to the arbitration request.
