How to identify legitimate movers
With the continued growth of rogue movers it is advisable to ask some of the questions below in order to identify if you are about to hire legitimate or rogue movers:
- Statutory compliance. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration governs all long distance moves, thus it is important to ensure that your mover is registered and has complied with all the requirements. Registered movers should also have insurance valued at $750,000 or more. Use the company MC and USDOT numbers to search for the company’s status.
- Business details. It is important to find out how long your mover has been in business and if they have specialized in your kind of move. You also need to find out where the company offices are located and if they possess the necessary moving aides such as dollies, moving trucks, hoisting straps etc. You also need to check and confirm that they have their own staff who wear branded uniforms.
- Estimates and payments. Legitimate movers will give you free in-house estimates. Don’t engage a mover who does not give you an in-house estimate. They will most probably be rogue movers. Do not work with movers who do not give you written moving documents. Be wary of movers who require you to make a down payment of more than 25% of the estimate or movers who require you to pay in cash only.
- Non-allowable Items. The FMCSA has restrictions on what movers can and cannot carry during long distance moves. Find out from your mover the list of items they do not carry. The most common non-allowable items are classified into:
- Hazardous items. These items if exposed to the right conditions can be corrosive, flammable or explosive. Some of these items include ordinary things that may not seem harmful such as nail polish remover, car batteries, cleaning liquids and pesticides.
- Personal items. These items have sentimental value to you therefore they should not be shipped by the movers. These may include insurance policies, personal videos or CDs, airline tickets, financial documents, laptops, and jewelry amongst others.
- Perishable items. Perishable items go bad quickly and have the potential to spill and damage other items, so movers don’t carry them.
