Interstate Mover Basics
Interstate movers have to obtain and maintain appropriate licensing in order to conduct countrywide moves. The explosion of scam companies has made it all too easy to get duped by small companies who are not in a position to conduct your move. When considering a moving company, a crucial part of the evaluation process should involve verifying that they are licensed to conduct interstate/ long distance moves.
Everyone has access to it, which is obviously a good thing. However, anyone can misuse it, like fraudulent companies for example. When it comes to household movers, it is very easy for companies to misrepresent themselves, and this can be especially problematic for an interstate move.
To make sure that the company you go with can actually complete your move successfully, reference their DOT number and make sure they are licensed to do interstate moves. The federal database safersys.org also provides information on the size of the company. You can consult the number of drivers and number of units to get a clearer sense of the company with whom exactly you are dealing with .
If a company tells you they do 500 interstate moves a year, but only has 2 drivers and 3 trucks, you know something is inaccurate. Small companies or new interstate movers can indeed be trustworthy, but you must make sure they have the resources and certification to complete your move successfully.
