Things You Can Do To Find Trusted Local Moving Companies
There are many things you can do to avoid moving scams and a large headache. The number one thing is to make sure the movers are licensed they all have a license number that you can confirm. Always get written estimates from as many movers as you can. The moving estimate should always be based on an actual inspection of your household and your household goods. Also confirm that the moving company has the correct insurance which you should be able to confirm with their provider. When you are making a move from State to State, a U.S. DOT number is always issued by FMCSA that you can look up very easily. You can always double-check any moving company license on protectyourmove.gov.
OK, so those are some things you can do to make sure you are get reputable moving services. Obviously the easiest way is to get moving quotes by filling out our quick moving form, then you will receive quotes from licensed, insured and pre-screened movers with no work. I would still do some research after getting the quotes as you need to decide which moving company is best for you and your move or relocation.
