Here are four questions to ask when researching and interviewing potential moving companies: Is the moving company asking you for a cash deposit prior to your move? Does the moving company have a physical local address (and not just a PO Box) on its website? Does the company include licensing information on its site?
Your next step is to pick up your phone book, or call your local real estate agents and find at least three moving companies that have offices in your area. Try to find moving companies that have been in business at least ten years, and do not hire a moving broker. Current consumer protection laws related to household goods brokers are insufficiently written, and enforced.
