Hiring an Interstate Moving Company
We know there are a lot of options when it comes to cross country movers, but when shopping around for a moving company, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Interstate moves are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation. To legally operate, moving companies must by licensed through the FMCSA and meet minimum insurance requirements. When browsing the web for movers, you might come across some deals that seem too good to be true – and chances are, they are. There are many rogue moving companies that offer amazing deals, but that aren’t licensed by the FMCSA and don’t carry adequate levels of insurance. Even if they offer competitive pricing, they should be avoided. By operating illegally, these companies put their customers’ belongings as risk. If something goes wrong during your move, you could lose everything you own and have no recourse for recovery. At Cheap Movers Las Vegas, we will always pair you with a moving company that is both licensed and insured, so you never have to worry about who is transporting your belongings.
