A bill targeting unregistered household movers has cleared the state House and is headed to the Senate.

State Rep. Gary Day, a Lehigh County Republican who represents part of Berks County, sponsored the bill.
The legislation would make it a crime for people to operate as commercial household movers without registering with the state Public Utility Commission.
“It is my understanding that there are numerous ‘rogue’ movers who operate within the commonwealth and advertise themselves as legal household goods movers on websites such as Craigslist,” Day said in a press release. “By flying under the regulatory radar, this type of behavior is dangerous and misleading to consumers because they do not carry the proper credentials or insurance needed to protect consumers and their property.”
A conviction of failing to register as a mover would be considered a misdemeanor and punishable with a fine of $5,000 for a first offense and $10,000 for second or later offenses.
