Screening of Moving Companies

Do an initial screen of the company of the Better Business Bureau, says the U.S. Department of Transportation's consumer protection site, ProtectYourMove.gov.

Gather basic company information:

  • Company name
  • Company address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Website

Ask questions about the company:

  • How long has the company been in business?
  • Are their movers employees, or do they contract out?
  • Are workers adequately insured?
  • What is the company's Department of Transportation License number?

Estimate

Set-up a date for an in-home estimate and learn the details of the estimate.

  • What is included in the estimate?
  • Is this estimate "binding" (a guaranteed price)?
  • What might warrant additional charges?
  • References
  • Schedule/available move date

Tip: confirm a company's license at ProtectYourMove.gov. You can also check complaint records there, too.
