General moving information
- All long distance movers are required to register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and to comply with specific requirements.
- If looking to hire movers it is best to understand that long distance moves are charged by weight and the distance to be covered. Thus, it is helpful to downsize your property.
- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires movers to insure your move. Never move with any mover who does not provide you with insurance.
- Movers offer many accessorial services that make your move easier. However, it is important to ask your mover what extra services they provide and how they charge for each.
- Movers are mandated to insure your move. This allows you to make claims in the event of loss or damage to your items.
Most common moving don’ts
You need to be vigilant when hiring movers and below are some of the things you should do to avoid being defrauded by rogue movers:
- Do not book the first mover you come across; always do your research and compare services and pricing from at least four companies.
- Do not work with a mover who is not registered and compliant with the FMCSA moving requirements.
- Do not work with a long distance mover who is not registered by the American Moving and Storage Association.
- Do not work with movers who do not give you in-house moving estimates.
- Do not work with movers who do not give you a written estimate and other written moving documents.
- As a moving client, you should never sign blank or incomplete moving documents.
- It is advisable not to work with companies that require more than 25% down payment of the quoted estimate.
- Do not fully entrust your move to movers; be available to supervise both the pickup and delivery days.
- Do not let your movers begin the move before counterchecking the documents. At the end of the pickup look through the mover’s inventory, sign off on every page, and keep a copy for yourself.

- Have a moving binder that will contain all the moving documents such as the inventory and estimates.
- Give at least two phone numbers that your mover can reach you on before the move. Be available to supervise the move. Give them proper directions to the new place.
