There are several ways you can narrow down your choices.

Make sure that the company is legal (licensed and insured).

The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the government agency responsible for licensing all interstate movers.  DOT maintains records on each moving company and moving agent’s liability and cargo insurance to make sure that they operate safely. A good status with DOT will establish that you have chosen a safe, insured mover to ship your goods. You can view the information on their website directly:

To check a moving company or moving agent’s licenses, insurance, safety data and other services related to the transportation industry please visit: When visiting, make sure to have the company’s DOT or MC number so you can see the requested data.

Make sure that the company is reputable:

Check the company’s record in the Better Business Bureau – You can see an overview of when the company was established and check the rating of the company.  We recommend only using companies with an A rating that have been in business for over 5 years.
