What are you looking for in a mover?

When shopping for a professional moving service to assist you with your new move, there are a few important questions that come to mind, like, “how much is this going to cost?”, “how reliable will they be?”, and “how quickly will they be able to get from Point A to Point B?”. 

But one of the most important questions that you should be asking yourself is “will my movers be licensed or insured, and are they required to be?” The answer? It’s a little complicated.

All professional moving companies are required to be licensed with the US Department of Transportation if they are operating across state lines, however–if a moving company is solely operating in their own state, licensing is required on a state-by-state basis.

So if you’re moving out of state, chances are your movers will be licensed. If you’re moving to another area of your state, it might be worth doing some research. If you’re looking for an easy way to do that, MoversTrusted has an easy-to-use search engine–it’s a simple tool that can be used to easily vet moving companies before you commit to hiring them.

What about insurance? Simply put: professional moving services are required to be insured in some form or another. Typically for interstate moving services, that’s two specific types of insurance options– Full Value Protection and Released Value. Additional insurance varies from company to company, so it might be a good idea to do some research using our aforementioned search engine tool or to ask the company directly before hiring them to transport your valuables.
