The Commission regulates the transportation of household goods (HHG) within North Carolina. A HHG mover is required to obtain a Certificate (C-#) from the Commission to engage in the intrastate transportation of HHG, as defined in Commission Rule R2-37. As part of the regulatory process, HHG movers are required to abide by the provisions of the Maximum Rate Tariff (MRT) issued by the Commission. The MRT governs such moves within the state and provides: (1) the maximum rates which can be charged; (2) all rules and regulations pertaining to such moves; (3) all forms which must be used for the move; and (4) an informational booklet for the consumer, Moving in North Carolina, Your Rights and Responsibilities, which the HHG mover is required to provide to potential customers.
The Commission also regulates, to varying degrees, regular‑route bus companies, passenger brokers, and ferryboat operators. A regular‑route bus company is required to obtain a Certificate (B-#) from the Commission to transport passengers as a motor carrier over fixed, regular routes by motor vehicle in intrastate commerce in North Carolina. A passenger broker is required to obtain a Certificate (B‑#) from the Commission to engage in the business of broker in arranging for the transportation of passengers by motor vehicle in intrastate commerce in North Carolina.
