Why use a Licensed Moving Company?

Licensed Moving Company

Trucks with no company names, or logos are a flag for a potential unlicensed illegal movers.

Moving day is approaching, and you may have found that you are in need of some extra hands on the move. If you’ve never hired a moving service company you may be asking questions like “How much is this going to cost?”, “What is the difference between a licensed and unlicensed mover”, or “ Why not use this craigslist guy?”.

First off, we are going to strongly advise you not to use the craigslist guy, just for the simple reason that he probably isn’t licensed. Having a license for a moving company is important for you to the consumer because it ensures a few things:

  1. That the company is running a legal operation and can be held accountable for any of their actions
  2. A licensed company will have insurance, and in turn, will probably offer insurance for you the consumer.
  3. Unlicensed movers are more likely to potentially damage your stuff, change prices once they have your possessions, or steal your stuff.
