Household Goods Complaint History
 

The National Consumer Complaint Database (NCCDB) allows consumers to file complaints regarding household goods moving companies, including brokers, carriers and freight forwarders. This system also allows HHG companies the ability to view the individual details of the complaints and to challenge duplicate or fraudulent complaints. In order to access this system, please visit: http://nccdb.fmcsa.dot.gov.

The following table reports the number of complaints lodged in the NCCDB against the selected HHG company. When making comparison between companies, it is important to take into account the size of the companies. Larger companies are capable of handling more moves; and therefore, are more likely to have complaints lodged against them. The data shown above under fleet size can be used for assessing the size of a company.

  • This website uses the Motor Carrier Safety Measurement System (SMS), which is based on current federal motor carrier safety data and measures a company’s compliance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. The assessments cover 24 months of activity and the results displayed here are updated monthly.

  • The SMS provides an assessment of a company's on-road performance and investigation results across the listed, publicly available, Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs).
Serious violation cited within last 12 months from an investigation.
Denotes this carrier exceeds the FMCSA intervention threshold relative to its safety event grouping based upon roadside data and/or has been cited with one or more serious violations within the past 12 months during an investigation. Therefore, this carrier may be prioritized for an intervention action and roadside inspection.
 
BASIC percentiles range between 0 (best) and 100 (worst) and are calculated for companies with sufficient data related to each BASIC. Within each BASIC, a percentile is assigned from 0 to 100 based on the companies' safety compliance. For example, a percentile value of 95 means that the company performed WORSE than 95% of the companies in the group (higher BASIC measures indicate less compliance).
