Local & Intrastate Moves refers to household goods that are transported within the state of North Carolina such that the origin, transportation and destination of the household goods exists and occurs entirely within the boundaries of North Carolina.
The North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC) regulates the transportation of household goods (HHG) within North Carolina, even moves made within a city or county. Any person or entity engaging in the local & intrastate transportation of HHG must have a Certificate of Exemption issued by the NCUC which must be clearly displayed in any advertising, on the Estimated Cost of Services form, and on the Bill of Lading. To determine whether or not a mover has a certificate, refer to the list of regulated transportation companies shown on the Commission’s website.
As part of the regulatory process, household goods movers (Movers) are required to abide by the provisions of the Maximum Rate Tariff (MRT) issued by the Commission. The MRT governs such moves within the state and provides: (1) the maximum rates which can be charged; (2) all rules and regulations pertaining to such moves; (3) all forms which must be used for the move; and (4) an informational booklet for the consumer, Moving in North Carolina, Your Rights and Responsibilities, which the Mover is required to provide to potential customers.
