Arbitration exists to prevent the courts from filling up with household movers disputes. It is a step that a customer agrees to in the contract when agreeing to the move in Contracts For New Movers. This requires that they go through Arbitration before they are able to file a suit in small claims court. Usually, this ends successfully for both parties.
Small claims court can be costly and this mediation-Esque process allows both sides to be tended to.
It usually ends in them being both happy with the results. Arbitration also speeds up the process of a dispute by allowing both parties to give their information to a third party. They then settle by having the third party decide the outcome.

Many movers might ask, “What is an arbitration program?” Simply put, arbitration is a method that companies use to legally settle disputes with a consumer. It does not require court time. Arbitration is a non-bias program. An arbitration hearing consists of either a single arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators. While many legal systems require that a panel consist of an odd number of arbitrators, presumably to prevent a stalemate. More often than not, a panel of arbitrator does not exceed three. The parties involved in the dispute send their supporting documentation and any letters to the arbitrator. Arbitration provides a different option for settling a dispute rather than entering the courtroom.
Any household goods moving company, local or long distance, needs arbitration. Any household mover is required to offer arbitration as a backup for claims. However, the customer is not required to sign up for arbitration offered by the moving company. The customer has the choice to opt out of being part of an arbitration program. They can instead take the dispute to small claims court. One advantage of having moving arbitration in place is to save the time and money. Some customers might prefer going to small claims court if they believe they are entitled to a large amount of money.
Shippers have the right to choose not to participate in the arbitration program that the movers have in place. Shippers can choose not to participate in the arbitration program that the movers have established. They may request legal assistance via court actions pursuant to 49 USC 14706. If a shipper does not agree to participate in an arbitration program, there may be more costs for both parties. Fees will be higher when disputes are taken to court. Another important note is that the mover cannot force a client to join an arbitration program, especially before a claim is filed.
