Louisiana Household Goods Moving Company Owner Charged
On August 5, 2014, charges were brought against Dunwoodie McDuffie, owner and operator of Mr. Move. McDuffie was charged with conducting interstate household goods (HHG) moves from February to April 2013, using a revoked U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) number and without registering for DOT HHG Operating Authority.
It was alleged that McDuffie operated Mr. Move in the New Orleans, Louisiana, area. He performed both interstate and intrastate HHG moves. Mr. Move was placed out of service by the DOT, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) on December 3, 2008, for failing to comply with safety review requirements. As a result, Mr. Move did not have operating authority to conduct interstate HHG moves.
The investigation revealed that Mr. Move conducted seventeen interstate HHG moves between January 2013 and August 2013, in violation of FMCSA regulations and requirements.
We are conducting this investigation with assistance from FMCSA and the Louisiana State Police.
