Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
Subject: Requiring domiciliary for common carrier by motor vehicle
Pennsylvania-based household goods movers are at a competitive disadvantage compared to movers based in New Jersey and New York.

New Jersey-based and New York-based household goods movers are able to obtain a permit through the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and are authorized to move household goods within the Commonwealth. However, New Jersey and New York do not allow Pennsylvania-based movers to do the same in their respective states. Both New Jersey and New York have strict domiciliary requirements for household goods movers.

In the near future, I will introduce legislation to establish domiciliary requirements to legally transport household goods within the Commonwealth. This will help level the playing field among household goods movers.

Introduced as SB422
