How do you choose a moving company?

  • Ask your friends, relatives and business associates about movers they have used and liked.
  • Use the phone book or contact a real estate agent to find companies that have offices in your area.
  • If you are using the Yellow Pages, remember: just because a moving company has a large ad does not necessarily mean it is reputable.
  • Once you have made a list of prospects, contact the companies via phone to get the full company name and “doing business as” names, the number of years in business, address and phone numbers, Web site and email addresses, references,  and DOT and MC license numbers.
  • You can check with the Better Business Bureau in your local area or go to, an FMCSA website and search for the company using the DOT and MC license numbers to see safety information, licensing and other information.
