Before You Get Moving, You’ll Need an Arbitration Program


If you move household goods across state lines, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association requires you by law to have an arbitration program in place.


Without one, the Department of Transportation can slap your company with a serious fine.


But you can cover all your bases and meet DOT license requirements with Brief.

Meet Your License Requirements


With Brief, you get a free arbitration clause which you can insert into any household goods movers contract that complies with the requirements of the Department of Transportation’s law 49 CFR 375.211


Our arbitration program ensures your moving company meets the DOT’s classification and requirements for a Household Movers Permit (HTR) so you remove the risk of heavy fines for non-compliance.

Claim Process

1. Claim is Started Online

You or your client starts the claim online and uploads corresponding evidence.

2. You Respond

After being notified of the claim, the other party (the Respondent) responds with their side of the story and any supporting evidence.

3. Judge is Assigned

An independent and impartial judge is then assigned to the case.

4. Judge Reviews Evidence

The judge reviews all of the evidence and, if need be, can message either party through the platform with any questions.

5. Ruling

The judge makes a final decision on the outcome of the claim, including the monetary result and issues a binding arbitration award.


Arbitration is less expensive, more efficient and provides better settlement and resolution options than traditional litigation.


The Department of Transportation introduced regulations that all interstate moving companies must be signed up to an arbitration program in order to reduce pressure on the US  civil court system.


Judges are keenly aware of this requirement and will compel parties to the arbitration or dismiss the case outright if the option is not established with your customer, leaving you and your business without any recourse whatsoever.
