But the commission still is looking at possible involvement of airport authorities, said FTC officials who confirmed the inquiry after it was reported in the newsletter "FTC: Watch." The newsletter said the agency "has been examining its jurisdiction over municipally owned airports and has concluded that it at least has the authority to investigate if mil bring an enforcement action." . The resolution ordering the investigation says it is to "determine whether various airport authorities are or have been engaged in acts or practices in violation of... the Federal Trad* Commission Act, including contracts in restraint of trade and price fixing combinations Involving the rental of automobiles at their respective airports." At the-time of the complaint against Avis, Hertt and National in June 1975, the FTC estimated the firms controlled 96 per cent of the car rental market at airports. Fraud hampers moving Americans By LOUISE COOK Assoclted Press Writer Millions of Americans will move to new homes this summer, and consumers who shop carefully can save themselves money and trouble. The Interstate Commerce Commission says preliminary figures show there were more than one million interstate household moves last year. The cost of the relocations was over 51 billion. One moving company estimates that 35 million Americans change their residence every year and says more than half of the long-distance moves are made between May 15 and Sept. is: The government recently announced a crackdown on interstate movers who engage in fraudulent practices, but you don't have to wait for the government to act. You can protect yourself. Ray Atherton, chief of the ICC's Household Goods Branch has several suggestions. First, make sure the mover gives you a copy of his 1976 perform ance report. Check several firms and compare reports. The ICC requires the companies to file annual reports on such things as the number of shipments delivered and the number and type of complaints. Copies of all the reports are available at ICC regional offices in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Fort Worth, Philadelphia and San Francisco, as well as at the agency's headquarters in Washington. Note: moving is expensive. or have the company do it for you. Packing your own furniture takes time -- Atherton suggests setting aside every evening for a week or so. You also may find it harder to collect for damaged goods if you have done your own packing. On the other hand, the service is costly ; having the movers pack can add J500 or more to the cost of an average move. At least one company now offers containerized moves; all your household goods are packed in a single, weatherized container which is sealed, put on a flatbed trailer for shipment and is not unsealed until it reaches the other end. The containerization method cuts the amount of handling and the seal adds security. One target of the government's latest investigation is the practice of adding weight to a load, such as bricks, or falsifying records so the shipment seems heavier than it really Is. Since long-distance movers base charges on weight as well as distance, the extra poundage adds up to higher bills. The ICC said that records of moves by military families showed that the weight listed on the bill was greater than the actual weight in almost 9 per cent of the shipments. To avoid such a problem, make sure you get a weight ticket when the furniture is delivered. This tells you' the weight the bill is based on. If you don't get a ticket, be suspicious. Atherton also advises consumers to watch out for a ticket that has obviously been altered, has no signature or is undated. If you have doubts about whether the weight on the bill equals the amount you shipped, ask for a reweighing. Many movers have their own scales and some communities have public scales as well. Watch while the truck is being re- weighed, ask to see the contents and compare the results with your bill. The consumer has to pay for the reweighing -- about 520 -- but (lie money will be refunded if the weight listed on the bill is 120 pounds or more greater than the real weight.
