Questions to help you shortlist legitimate movers
Using movers helps to take away the stress from your planning. However, it is important to do a thorough screening of your local movers to identify the best fit for your needs. Below are some of the questions you could ask:
- Experience. Find out from your mover how long they have been in the moving business. It is always safer to work with a mover who has at least 5 years of moving experience.
- Client feedback. Always ask a moving company to give your details of their clients so that you may contact them to get feedback on their experiences.
- Expertise. Find out what resources they have that will help make your move successful. It is good to get details on both their physical and human resources.
- Compliance. All long distance moving companies should be registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Ask each of the movers to provide you with the US DOT and MC numbers to enable you to search for them.
- Estimates. Ask them what types of estimates they give their clients. Find out what their terms and modes of payments are. Ask them which additional services they provide to their clients and how they charge for each service. If you are crossing state lines ask them if the move will be affected by the labor laws in the new state and how that will impact the final estimate.
- Prohibited items. Ask each mover for a list of items they don’t carry and a list of those that they can carry but for which they will charge you extra.

The 3P’s of non-allowable Items
FMSCA requires movers not to carry some certain types of items during long distance moves because of their potential to cause danger. Many movers have a list of items that they will not transport to or from Grand Forks. Below are the most common:
- Personal. These are items of very high value. Many movers will recommend that you carry them for yourself. Some of these items will include medication, personal and business certificates, exclusive art pieces, jewellery, safes and safe keys, laptops among others.
- Perilous items. These items can be explosive, corrosive or flammable if exposed to the right conditions. Some of these items will include fertilizer, nail polish remover, car batteries, pesticides, acidic items amongst others. When moving, make sure that you dispose them properly or give them away to neighbors and friends.
- Perishable items. Long distance movers will often not carry plants and any food item even if it is frozen. Perishable items have the potential to go bad very quickly and cause damage to the entire shipment.
