How to know if a Moving Company is legitimate?

The best way to check if a moving company is legitimate is by looking at their MC and USDOT number. You must be wondering what exactly USDOT and MC numbers are? 

Well, that is something that every properly licensed moving company needs to have and both of those numbers need to be fully active and operative as well. USDOT is a special interstate operating authority assigned from FMCSA to interstate movers. Some interstate moving companies need an MC number in addition to a USDOT number. One really important thing is to check the authority of the USDOT number. Another essential thing is that interstate moving companies need to have a neutral arbitration program, as well as great insurance and policy covers.

Another great way to find out if a company is properly certified is to check their moving reviews. Real customer testimonials and experiences can really paint a picture and reassure you if the movers you are planning to hire are real professionals

As a moving company we know how important it is to ensure the company you are planning to hire for your move is properly licensed and insured. By filling out this form, you’ll be confident that the company you choose will take the best care of your belongings.
